My top would be

Louis C.K.
Lewis Black
Jim Gaffigan
Arj Barker
Dave Chappelle

And then there's great comics who are not currently working as comics:

Sarah Silverman
Eddie Izzard
Chris Rock

And then there's

Dennis Miller

Who is currently working as a comic AND as a radio talk-show guy

And then there's

Robert Smigel

Who is a comedy writer/producer but often works as a "stand-up" while he's doing:

Triumph the Insult Comic Dog

My favorite is probably the humping, puking, eating it up dog. I have a very juvenile sense of humor.

From the NSFW thread.

Wanda Sykes
Lewis Black
Richard Jeni--but thinking about him now makes me sad
Louis C.K.--but remembering they canceled his show pisses me off
Bruce Bruce
Ron White
Triumph the Insult Comic Dog, "...For me to poop on!!"

A couple of years ago, I saw a stand up comic from Queens (?) who was an opening act for Wanda at the Improv in DC--I wish I could remember his name, he was freaking hilarious.
