Who is the funniest person or three that you have ever seen, heard, or the funniest author if that applies instead. I think at his peak Robin Williams was incredibly funny. So was Steve Martin and many from the SNL crowd. When I was a kid, there was also a old guy around that went by the name of "Dean Martin's Uncle". I don't know if he really was Martin's uncle or not but this guy could walk back and forth on a stage telling one liners that would keep me and my dad in stitches as long as he talked. Of course, what's funny today may be another thing tomorrow. I once thought Bugs Bunny was about the funniest wabbit awound.
