Funny Man Trevor Mux’s TOP 5 Comedians

FUCC’s Trevor Muxworthy lets Fredericton Locals take a look into his top 5 comedians. 

A comedy nerd is going to have a hard time putting their top five comedians into list form. I could go on for days, so many greats unmentioned dead and alive. These are mine.

1. Doug Stanhope
2. Bill Hicks
3. George Carlin
4. Bill Burr
5. Norm MacDonald

You might have questions, like, why do you use a comma so much? No Louis CK? Norm MacDonald?? George Carlin at #3?

I’ll explain… Bill Hicks would’ve been #1 had he lived long enough for me to do mushrooms after one of his shows. Therefore Doug Stanhope prevails.

George Carlin drops down to the three hole because of childish behaviour. Watching him is a master class in comedy writing.

This top 5 thing is bull shit! Richard Pryor, Lenny Bruce, Louis CK, Bill Cosby, Patrice O’Neal, Dave Chapelle, Steven Wright, Mitch Hedberg, Joe Rogan, Joey Diaz, Tom Segura… like I said I could go on for days.

The number four spot changes weekly. Today it is Bill Burr. I think he is one of the hardest working stand ups right now. Him and Louis swap positions constantly for who can last the longest.

Bill Burr knocks it out of the park weekly with his Monday Morning Podcast.

The #5 spot is held for comedians that I’ve had breakfast with. Not only is Norm MacDonald one of my idols, he is such a badass I would never bother asking him for a picture… (only to take an even creepier picture unbeknownst to himself).

So that is my top five. The comic who almost made the list you can watch tonight at the Capital. Morgan O’Shea (Montreal).
