**2+2 Stand Up Comedian Madness Official Nomination Thread**
With March Madness finished, it's time to pick up where we left off with 2+2 Pokercast Madness. Next up, Stand-up comedians. Who is 2+2's all time favorite stand-up comedian.
In this thread we will accept nominations. The top 28 nominations will automatically get invites to the 32 person field. 29-36 will have to earn one of 4 spots in the 'play-in round'. Comics will be then be seeded and placed in 8 voting groups of 4, with the top 2 vote getters advances to the Sweet 16 when the heads-up battles will begin.
1) No Groups/Duos - Individuals Only (cheech & chong, smothers brothers, Monty Python etc.)
2) Should be able to find at least one youtube clip online of the comic so that people who have not heard any material before can vote
3) Must have been active at some point in the past 32 years (done a set since 1980). i.e. Lenny Bruce is not eligible(died in 1966), but Don Rickles who was born the same year would be eligible.
4) Up to maximum 10 nominations per poster. Only your first 10 names will be considered as nominations. If you nominate 5 in your first post, you can nominate 5 more in a second post. Please don't make 10 different posts with one comic in each post. Common sense for ease of counting up nominations.
5) If you want someone else to nominate someone you REALLY want to see get into the final 32, add a youtube clip and you might get some support. This is acceptable
Nomations will stay up through Sunday, April 15th. Play-in round will commence on April 18th.

This should be fun! I feel like I'm under-exposed to the world of stand-up comedy, but as Mike pointed out in the other thread, this is a competition where it will be easy for us to look up clips of comedians who others nominated!
Here's my ten:
Also, did Rodney Dangerfield's standup career extend into the 80s? If so, move him to the top of my list and remove Lewis Black.
