Field of 64 Comedians - Championship Round

Posted on: April 2, 2009 8:06 am

 Well here we are at the championship round. A couple of upsets in the last round with the 3 seeds beating up on their 2 seed opponents. Here is a link to the results of the last round

Once again, I want to make sure everyone understands the rules, I made a slight amendment this week.

Recap of the rules.

1. Vote for all of the matchups. If you don't like either, or can't decide who you like better, flip a coin. When counting votes for 32 matchups, it is easier to know I tallied everything correctly if all matchups have the same number of votes.
2. Please use BOLD to indicate who you are voting for, or just strikethough the one you don't want to vote for (glad they fixed that), but keep your response in a list form, including the areas (east, west, etc.) Again, this just makes it easier for me to count up the votes
3. Not really a rule, but feel free to make comments on the matchups if you like. It makes for interesting reading.

Here is the Championship Matchup.

#3 Robin Williams


#3 Bill Cosby

Polls will be open for two weeks, closing on April 16.

Field of 64 Comedians - Championship Round

What a hideous choice to be forced to make. Kinison....gone Billy Hicks.....gone  Redd Foxx...........gone.

I refrain from voting, as this is like choosing between being eaten alive by ducks or trampled to death by them. In neither case is an appealing choice available.

Yeah - it's another case where the 'Popular' person is not the 'Superior' one. Neither Robin Williams nor Bill Cosby are fit to hold Bill Hick's Jockstrap.  Now, my feelings on this could be because Hicks passed away at what could be considered to top of his 'game', and Kinison most definitely died on his way UP - while Williams and Cosby have survived, and degenerated into parodies of themselves.

No vote for me, either.

Field of 64 Comedians - Championship Round

 Time to call this one. Looks like Cosby wins the competition whooping up on Robin Williams by a rediculous 19-2 margin. Personally I don't think Bill was the funniest guy on the list, and some truly outstanding talent was eliminated early, but hey these things are meant to be the end of all debates, just something we do for fun on the boards.

Stay tuned, the next field of 64 will be (or maybe it already is) available, go back to the movies to see if we can figure out the best Sci-Fi pic of all time. Quite an odd list in my opinion based on the lists I used to create it.

Field of 64 Comedians - Championship Round

 I'm a little surprised at how this one is going so far.  (at least how far I read)  Thought Williams would hold up a little better against Bill.  But anyway, thanks for the 20th time for running this, it's been a blast. On to the vote already....

Robin Williams

Field of 64 Comedians - Championship Round

With all due respect to the genius of Robin Williams I have to agree with the majority and cast my vote for Mr. Bill Cosby.

I remember when his albums came out I was about 12 and we would listen to them and laugh our a$$es off.

buc buc anyone?

It looks like I'm in agreement with the majority so far. Bill Cosby gets my vote too. A truly funny, and truly classy guy.

Field of 64 Comedians - Championship Round

If I counted right, looks like its 13-14 for Bill Cosby, and 2 for Robin Williams, looks like a blowout, a really bad blowout.
