American comedians are some of the top rated stand up comedians in the world. These are the greatest stand up comedians this country has produced, including people who made their names as stand up comics and then went on to have great careers in other areas of entertainment and media.

You could say that one's environment does a lot to shape a famous comedian. Usually stand up comics are a product of their environment and experiences and in this case, that has a lot to do with their country. Comedians from the U.S.  are usually more accustomed to diversity and also tend to be more sensitive and politically correct than comedians from other countries. Which comedians, male or female, on this list are the most quintessentially American? Since everyone's humor is different, especially in such a diverse nation, there's bound to be some disagreement. From southern/country comedians like Jeff Foxworthy to New Yorkers like Jerry Seinfeld, this list ranks the best of the best.
