This list contains information about the best southern comedians, loosely ranked by user votes. The best southern comedians come in many forms. Some famous comedians from the south joke about family in their stand-up acts while other southern comedians crack wise about relationships. A few hilarious southern comedians have gone on to become some of the most successful stand-ups in the world.

Who will you find on this top southern comedians list? Jeff Foxworthy has to be at the top. As a member of the Blue Collar Comedy Tour, Foxworthy wielded his southern charm and comedic wit to describe the many ways that “you might be a redneck.” His Blue Collar tour-mates – Larry the Cable Guy, Bill Engvall, and Ron White – are also among the best southern comedians.
