Kings Of Comedy

Just finished watching Kings Of Comedy (again) it's still hilarious; you start to realise that each one of the comedians delivers on different levels but the material is equally as good. D.L Hughley is a great comedian, quick lines, great stage presence and he can snap at the audience which is a triple threat. Steve Harvey is an old school clown; "he just be cussing" all day everyday, Cedric The Entertainer had that modern swagger mixed with the old so he's easy to relate to and the late, great Bernie Mac is a hilarious storyteller and real talker, a legend. They were a perfect combination. However I always wondered whether they could have done another line-up along with these four. At the time I guess no1 could have touched these four but if you were to bring certain eras together what would have been the outcome? I would be enclined to say Red Foxx, Richard Pryor, Rodney Dangerfield and George Carlin but they were before my time. If I had to choose my 4 and possibly their back up I'd go with......

Jamie Foxx opening the show and being the host for the night. The dude is hilarious and has the multi-talented complex going on which would suggest he'd make the show bigger than stand-up. Where his stands up weren't the strongest his natural ability to be funny and make an audience take notice means there'd be no other candidate for the job. Take a look...



Tony Roberts
would have to be the back up host. He is so underrated as a comedian and deserves his name in the spotlight. Watch two out of his three better stand ups......



Dave Chappelle has grown from strength to strength over the years. His impressions are hilarious, his story telling is hilarious and he's comedy is extremely diverse to the point that he'll get the same level of laughter from any race or gender. He does stand-ups with ease and is a veteran who has had the seal of approval from comedy greats. Enjoy.....



Katt Williams would be the understudy for his pure realness and shortness. When he's at his best there's not many who can contend with him. Great delivery and all round performer. As you can see...



Chris Rock is an undoubted legend. If he's not on everybody's there is a serious problem. He has the skills to apply comedy to personal and political issues with both being just as funny as the other. He'd be perfect in a show just before the main event as he is able to switch up issues that haven been talked about previously. If you have any doubts have a look at the vids....



Corey Holcomb is another out of this world comedian. He doesnt look for approval in the obvious ways of comedy which makes him stand out. Like Chris Rock he'd be the change in the usual delivery of topics. Enjoy...



Eddie Murphy produced arguably the greatest stand-up comedy acts of all-time in Raw and Delirious. 25 years on it is still as funny as ever with classic lines and it would be a travesty if Eddie didn't headline the show. When you talk about the best in my opinion there's no other.



Bruce Bruce has become a modern headliner. He's a crowd favourite with confidence and stage presence. Like most comics he's outlandish but with a great sense of audience interaction. Another legend in the making as long as he does his own stand up special....
