I prefer Chapelle, at least as an actor and a writer.  Their stand-up is about equal imo.

Chappelle is funnier, but prime Rock would beat his ass

Eddie Murphy over both. Nutty Professor demonstrated as much.

I'm not that big on Dave's stand up.

Neither am i. Rock keeps it moving rapid fire, less rambling.

Murphy has more raw talent than them in terms of voice and timing and mannerisms, but he's kinda dumb. He comes across as someone who stopped evolving at 14.

He basically did.
He had a lot of early fame, and more importantly, a lot of yes men and hangers on telling hin he could do no wrong. It happens.

Eddie Murphy is to Chris Rock and Dave Chappelle as Richard Pryor was to Eddie Murphy and the generation he inspired.

Either way I think Dave Chappelle is a storyteller at heart and his stand-up takes a lot of unexpected twists. Chirs Rock is rapid fire jokes that all hit hard and keep you reeling. I kind of prefer Chris Rock as a stand up.

Dave Chapelle is more versatile: greatest sketch comedy ever, movies, joke writer and that atand up is damned close to Rock's

Actually I think Richard Pryor skipped right over Murphy and inspired Rock and Chapelle directly. They both seem like much more legitimate heirs to Pryor than Murphy ever did.

That's a great point.
They both -say- things with their humor.
Murphy was just funny.

Chapelle is best in sketch comedy. Murphy's timing for stand up jokes is just gold though.

So Chapelle would win but rock had more votes, doe.

^^^This.
Both he and Rock are in the Pryor mold, stand up wise, with me liking Rock more.
