With all of due respect to everyone comedians everywhere, the highest comedians in recent history shall no longer be along with us, apart from Jerry Lewis at this moment. Comedy today is different than it was yesteryear. Many comedians today have to stretch so far they use language which should 't be employed in public. Yesterday's comedians did not have to resort to that, these were just naturally funny. Ahead of the advent of film and radio, there are probably comedians that have been laugh your brain off funny, but we cannot be familiar with. Even though they were in silent films, we all know that Charlie Chaplin, Harold Lloyd, Roscoe "Fatty "Arbuckle, and Buster Keaton were the very best comedians of their day. We can easily watch many of the old films and laugh because it was actually funny.
