Being able to make people burst into uncontrollable laughter is a precious gift that can be very lucrative. There have been plenty of talented, funny comedians that have come and gone but only a few leave an indelible mark.

Eddie Murphy, Chris Rock, Martin Lawrence and Dave Chappelle are the special ones. They have given us classic stand-up material that will live on forever.

We ask you to tell us who the funniest of the four are and place them in order!

Have at it MO!

    Whoa! Tough question to answer.. I love them all but ranking them I would go 4…. Damn this hard ok they are all winners so 4th aint last lol… 4.Dave Chappelle, since we only talking stand up i have to put Dave 4th but feel mighty wrong for doing it. (yeah im debating hard and taking this question quite serious lol) 3.Martin Lawrence, Runteldat and You So Crazy are classic plus his work every week on def comedy jam ALMOST made me put him ahead of 2.Eddie Murphy I know Eddie is probably tops for a lot of folks and You cant deny that Raw and Delirious paved the way for everybody after him and inspired everybody on this list plus many more but for me as great as Eddie is it always felt like he could have been more (Kinda like Shaq) Chris Rock is number 1 for me. He is probably the smartest dude in comedy, his political and social stuff is second to none and dude can play to any race or age group and still be hilarious. This of course is all just IMHO.
