Thread: Hurt and Heal: Controversial Comedians

    I don't think Gervais was controversial, but I would have made sure he lost to Daniel Tosh. Yes, I am that harsh. For Chappelle, I'd get him to the top five.

    You're BoJack Horseman, no cure for that.

    chappelle deserved a spot for sure, but if the list was purely in regards to controversy, i doubt it's a list he would care to make

    Aside from The Golden Globes and that time he got in trouble for using the word "Mong" I don't think he's overly controversial either, but a lot of people would beg to differ. I for one, never cared for him as a stand up comedian and can only tolerate listening to him when he's talking with the little round headed buffoon that is Karl Pilkington.

    I don't think he would mind being called controversial. He just didn't like the idea that his comedy may have been taking a turn from sending up stereotypes to merely reinforcing them (Hence his problems with the infamous "Pixie Sketch" that led to his departure from and the end of Chappelle's Show).

    it's not that he would mind being called controversial, it's just how powerful that label can be and the fact that it places edginess over genuine talent. chappelle is so much more than that, and he knows that.

    True...I miss Dave Chappelle He was that last comedian who made me truly laugh hard on a consistent basis until I discovered Frankie Boyle in 2010

    I really liked Aziz Ansari and Jeff Dunham. I always watched them on Comedy at night.

    Jeff Dunham's not bad. My first exposure to him was Achmed the dead terrorist and I didn't find it funny. Mainly because in the UK it was driven into the ground in countless ringtone adverts.

    I watched his "Minding the Monsters" special last year on Comedy Central and found myself loving it though.

    Agree with the first four, Lampanelli, Richards and Tosh are too high. Kaufman is too low and Louis C.K. could be higher. Roseanne is one of the few female comedians I can stomach, she could be a few notches lower though.
