Who do you think are the LOL-merchants of America? Well, it is the goofy, zany lot of rib-ticklers who have cracked up America with their crazy antics, witty one-liners, and really vile humor time and again (We love you, Chris Rock! We bow down before you, Danny McBride!). They are America's best comedians, the boundary-breakers, who got the entire country rolling in humor. No wonder the world is sitting up and taking notice of these merry minds. Thanks to them, comedy today is one of the fastest growing business in showbiz (And channels like Comedy Central is a testimony too that). Bill Burr, Amy Schumer, Louis C.K., Anthony Jeselnik, Ricky Gervais, Jim Jeffries, Jim Norton are just some of the oft laughed at comedians whose gags are counted among the legendary ones in America. Let us explore the lives of these funny men, America's most famous comedians in the timeline, trivia, and interesting in the biographies below.
