Funnier? Chappelle by a mile

More influential? Carlin by a mile

Chappelle is funnier. Carlin’s been dead for years...  ;)

Yup. Chapelle prime is unmatched, save maybe Eddie Murphy circa Delirious.

This is a disgrace. This really is like comparing Paul George (Chappelle) and Michael Jordan (Carlin).

Agree that Chappelle is funnier (to me) but it may be a generational thing.

I think they’re equally influential.

Carlin looks like a psychic know with his talk of changing language to weaponize it. Oh would he be fun to have around in the era of political correctness.

Carlin was pushing the envelope back when he was around,, but he set the goalpost a lot further than it was before him. In comparison, he seems pretty mild today. In perspective of what was taboo to talk about in television

It's also hard to compare because Chappelle show as lightning in a bottle never will be seen again comedy, but it was sketch comedy. As a stand-up, there are some people I find funnier. Just don't know if Carlin fits the bill
