I don't know how it's possible that Lewis Black isn't included yet. He's one of the biggest stand-ups today. He does a segment around once a month on The Daily Show called "Back in Black". He's had three Comedy Central Presents specials as well as an HBO stand-up special Black on Broadway. He's had 6 CDs released, including one that was just nominated for a Grammy. He also released a book last year called Nothing's Sacred.
