    Battle of the Stand-Up Comedians

    Hey, it's been a fruitful series of threads, so I thought I'd cash in. But more than that, I just want to pay my respects to the late great George Carlin, who is my first nomination.

    Usual rules. Each person can nominate 10 and second 5 initially. Undoubtedly these rules will be broken, but I'm a pretty epic moderator, so I figure I can deal with it. Just. Not sure about the total I'll use to run the battle, so we can play it by ear for now.

    I'm also allowed to break the rules. Do as I say, not as I do.

    My 6 noms to get things going:

    George Carlin
    Flight of the Conchords
    Ross Noble
    Mitch Hedberg
    Eddie Murphy
    Dylan Moran
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    The one, the only CW Black
    Code:
    47.3 W Coppinger to Heads 
        Smacked the ball straight into the groin of Iwuajoku who has fallen over, 
        miraculously with the ball still caught in his scrotal area! Out!
