It depends on context. I’m guessing a lot of you guys are referring to stand up comedians, and most of the "great" ones like Richard Pryor and George Carlin are dead. Perhaps in 20 years, the current crop of stand ups will be seen as classics, I don’t know. I’ve personally never been a huge fan of the genre.

In the context of movies, though, Richard Pryor flat out sucked. There can be no dispute on this point. Stir Crazy was decent, but everything else was total Sucksville. He had a worse batting average than Nicholas Cage.

I certainly won’t argue that Sandler has a 1.000 batting average himself, far from it, but all I can say is that I’ve laughed a lot harder during my 10+ viewings of Happy Gilmore than I ever did during Caddyshack.
