Don't know them all, voted CK for his blasphemous honesty.

Sure there is, but the list is off the top of my head and I didn't happen to think of any good ones.

What do you mean by blasphemous? He's telling off Muslims?

Although I'm not a fan of standup and donít follow standup stuff often (I mostly know females, they are more promoted nowadays!), I think it's in the nature of all standup comedians to be politically and socially incorrect and unconventional, even foul-mouthed, vulgar etc.  Perhaps this CK you voted for is more politically incorrect and unconventional than the others.

Anyways, I voted for Bill Burr, vote based on some funny stuff of his I had seen, and plus a friend of mine had spoken to him and said he was a nice fellow too.

Bill Burr is great sometimes.  Lately I really like Sebastian Maniscalco. 
(Also love Louis CK bit about smoking weed with millennials.)  If anyone knows of a great comedian similar to the two I mentioned, but not political, let me know.  I'm always up for checking out new names.

I've not heard of most of those, but I do like Doug Stanhope, Stewart Lee and Jim Jeffries.

Ultimately bored by endless ecstasy!

Of course it would have to be the best living stand up comedian. Very few dead comedians can stand up.

I'd hardly call him the best, but man I get such a laugh from Norm Macdonald. Love how much of his material is kind of shambling and falls flat equally as much as what hits the mark, but his delivery cracks me up all the time.
