I love comedians. Stand up comedy is one of those professions that you look at and wonder how they do it. You stand in front of a crowd of random people you're expected to make them laugh and entertain them. That's a lot of pressure. Many of you would have folded under the pressure but not these greats.
Here are 10 of the funniest stand up comedians who are no longer with us. Know your history. A lot of the great comedians of today would be nothing without the contributions of these people.
