Funniest Comedians Throughout History

Dr. Mozelle Martin

Dependant upon your generation, you may think that nobody has been funny since Abbot and Costello or Carlos Mencia. However, per several online polls, voters placed the following comedians in the category of "funniest throughout modern history."

Regardless of your age, medical and mental health professionals alike have long touted the scientific proof of laughter's healing properties. Many companies have laughter sessions to boost employee morale which in turn boosts production and profit. Many school teachers use laughter yoga to help students focus more and boost their grades.

Throughout history, many people have earned a living making people laugh. Their passion has been a gift for many and quite possibly has helped make a difference between life and death.

I decided to share the commedians that most people have never heard of or have forgotten about. For some, it's brand new information. For others, a walk down memory lane.

But that's not all.

There are many more commedians that various generations can recall. For example, Amy Schumer, Chris Rock, Dave Chappelle, Eddie Murphy, Jerry Seinfeld, Kevin Hart, Richard Pryor, Robin Williams, Rosanne Barr, Russell Peters, Sam Kinison, Sarah Silverman, and Wand Sykes, but the list goes on.

Who is your favorite comedian of all time?
