Does anyone know why?? I mean almost all the famous white comedians really are nto that funny. Jerry Sienfield not funny, Larry the Cable Guy not funny, Jeff Foxworthy not funny(my favorite part in Family Guy is when Stewie tells him "Youre Not Funny" and slams the door on him), I mean there are some other comediands not as big as these here but theyre not good at comedy, all of this is what I atleast think. Black and Hispanic comedians to me are way funnier, it may be because im Hispanic too, but I mean shit even white people are cracking up at theyre jokes and no blacks and hispanics are cracking up at the redneck jokes. What do you guys think??

I actually agree with you, kinda, yes...

Chris Rock is hilarious to name one.

Still, no one beats Russell Brand. ;)

Possibly because you're listing really shit comedians. I can think of countless hilarious white comedians (Although, I've never really thought about it in colour terms before...)

Russell Brand, Noel Fielding, Russell Howard, Simon Amstell, Julian Barratt, Jimmy Carr, Jon Richardson, Bill Bailey, Ross Noble... to name a few.

I have to say, any black comedians I've seen live, always go on about being black, which isn't really that funny because it's become so incredibly cliche.

Rodney Dangerfield was a funny comedian. I have his single 'Rappin Rodney'... what a funny song!

Agreed.

If you want funny white comedians, listen to Zack Galifiankis, Patton Oswalt, David Cross, Maria Bramford, Jim Gaffigan, Demitri Martin, and Brian Posehn.

White comics are hillarious!

its that, if your comparing black to white, there's more white comics than black which means the black appear better by numbers. But its not matter of race. Funny is just funny.

Good question, I'll just go ask Billy Connolly, Bill Hicks and George Carlin and get back to you when I find out what they have to say.

Billy Connolly and French & Saunders remain the only comedians who can make me laugh so much it hurts to breathe. They are comedic legends!

There's just something about American humor...it does nothing for me. Give me a good ol' F&S movie parody and NOW we're talking funny. The Star Wars Phantom Millenium just takes the cake for me


[EDIT]
How could I forget V to the P to the Icky to the Ollard XD And Fry & Laurie..hell, even Lynn of Tawa can be funny! And of course, FOTC, Rhys Darby, Te Radar e.t.c

American humour smells, English humour on the other hand...

Then there is Billy Connolly, Lee Evans. Woody Allen, Mel Brooks, Steven Wright, Peter Kay to name but a few more. So the argument of white guys not being funny is pure crap. But then it depends on your own type of humour.

I LOVE Lee Evans and Peter Kay.

Peter Kay was on stage having a laugh with the crowd before Queen+Paul Rodgers came on at the Hyde Park gig I went to back in 2005. :)

IMO George Carlin is the greatest comedian ever, and he's as white as can be.
Lewis Black is also funny as hell.

Although I agree that fuckin' Jerry Seinfeld is not funny at all. He only had a successful sitcom because Larry David wrote the majority of the episodes. Without Larry David, Jerry Seinfeld is worthless.

'Family Guy' should start focusing on being funny again.

I am personally sick of all those lame pop culture references and silly celebrity criticisms. In the beginning it was funny, but now it's just plain fuckin' boring.
