    This is a hard one. All are / were great. Personally I’m a Rodney fan, but to say who was the funniest at their prime, I would have to go with Mr. Chase. Caddeyshack, Fletch, Vacation = all classics. Chaddeyshack 2 shoud never have been made. Another great movie of Chevy’s was “Seem Like Old Times” with Goldie Hawn and Charles Groden. Chevy on Saturday Night Live was the best. His looks he gives after a line are the best. My favorite Chevy line when he’s talking to Judge Smails and Smails states “I’m no sloutch” and Chevy comes back with ” awe come on Judge, don’t sell yourself short, your a tremendous sloutch” = Priceless

    As I am surely dating all of you old heads participating in this poll, in 1978 I was still a gleam in my dad’s eye (or a tadpole in his – well yo know what I mean,) I might have to go with Belushi.

    Animal House
    Blues Brothers
    Samurai Deli
    Died speedballing heroin and cocaine

    Need I say more?

    Come ON people! These guys were all lame compared to Richard Pryor! And he survived HIS drug accident!!

    PS Eddie Murphy would be a close second, and still better than any of those white guys on the list!

    I give my vote to Gene Wilder for one role and one role only:
    Jim (The Waco Kid) in “Blazing Saddles”

    Bart: You be my guest, and I be your host. What be your pleasure, Jim?
    Jim: Oh, I don’t know… play chess… screw…
    Bart: Let’s play chess.

    Since Larry Fine is not on the list, I’ll have to go with Pryor.

    Even very dead, Rodney gets no respect. He could deliver great one liners in movies, stand up or TV specials and never have to worry about changing his schtick because it was GREAT! Besides how many times can a dude withg bulgy eyes succeed in Hollywood? (insert Marty Feldman or Dave Bowman joke here)

    By the way, I had the best possible way the scenario of the fight would have played out (Walker, Texas Ranger because roundhouse kick related deaths are up 14,000% since the Chuck norris was born) but I lost it and was tooo lazy to retype – sorry. Great topic

    Hey Doug I get no respect. I tell ya!

    Kinnision, Murphy, Short, Robin Williams all Mid 80’s in my book. Probably good fodder for future poll. Certainly all hilarious.

    What about the Diceman?

  12. 12 david January 16, 2006 at 7:46 pm

    Diceman was mid 80’s too. I was thinking about the Rodney special that has him, Tim Allen, John Fox, Uncle Larry, and others. Pure comedy gold!

    How about this for a topic: worst SNL cast member.

    That is excellent. There are a lot of bad ones to choose from.
