The Paramount’s Most Wanted Comedians

Within the last few months we have hosted and booked some amazing comedians such as Jim Breuer, Whoopi Goldberg, and Bill Cosby. Even though we have landed Hollywood’s funniest comedians we still receive suggestions in our Hit Us Up inbox. We’ve spent some time raking through the emails and pulled out most popular requests. Here are The Paramount’s most wanted comedians:

Lisa Lampanelli has won the name of being called “Comedy's Lovable Queen of Mean.” She is known for using celebrities as targets for her outrageous jokes along with her weight and sexuality. Howard Stern has said, “Lisa will steal the show every time, whether it's on my radio program or on any stage anywhere doing stand-up. I love Lisa and so should you...a true original and a brilliant comedy mind.”

Daniel Tosh has quickly evolved into one of the most popular and successful college acts, performing at more than seven hundred campuses. He is the host of Tosh.0 on Comedy Central where he showcases internet video clips in front of a live audience. Tosh’s latest special, Happy Thoughts, premiered on Comedy Central on March 6, 2011, with 3.25 million viewers and a 1.9/5 share. Tosh is the voice of Malloy in Comedy Central’s animated sitcom, “Brickleberry,” and is also one of the show’s executive producers.

Kathy Griffin is a multi-faceted performer with rapid fire wit along with being a two-time Emmy winner, Grammy-winner, and NY Times bestselling author. In 2013 during a live stand up performance in San Antonio, Texas, Guinness World Records honored Kathy Griffin for logging the most televised stand-up specials by any comedian.

Jeff Dunham uses his extraordinary talent of ventriloquism to make millions of fans laugh each time he hits the stage. Dunham is a phenomenally successful global entertainment brand and has the help from his entourage of signature characters who are there to challenge and chastise his every sentence. Time Magazine wrote that he is “the most popular comedian in the United States” and Forbes named him to its Celebrity 100 list of most powerful entertainers three years running.
