Snowflake Who is your favorite Christmas comedian?

We're working on several podcasts at once here and a theme of an upcoming podcast is Christmas Comedy.

After going through a lot of material this week I've found there are many who specialize in the comedy of Christmas.

Who would be your favorite?

I have a hard time deciding!

I had to go with two. Stan Freberg for his Christmas novelty songs, and Bob Hope for his Christmas radio comedy. He emcees several great Christmas shows for Command Performance (broadcast only to our fighting forces in WW2) and on his own radio show. But if Jack Benny was listed I would've chosen him. His Christmas shows are classic comedies.

I went with Bob Hope - he's great! I agree with skdluger, Jack Benny's Christmas shows are classics!

I'll go with Bob Hope but I like Jeff Dunham too.

I went with Bob Hope as well but I also loved Red Skelton and his Freddy The Freeloader skits at Christmas.

Another vote for Hope. Love his radio shows!

I appreciate how he was gracious enough to allow guest stars to steal the show during their segment.

At the time Bob Hope died, my friend was hosting a Big Band show. We did a tribute program with music and discussion about Hope's career. Always wished we'd recorded it--but I was grateful just to contribute. I think Crosby and Hope were two of the great talents of the last century.

I chose Bob Rivers, I love his parodies and to me it's not Christmas without listening to those CD's.

I chose Bob Rivers as well. I think the parodies that he does both Christmas and other one are up there with likes of all people to make it on Dr Dementos.
