Apart from George Carlin (for other reasons, of course), my all-time favorite comedian.
I can't even list all the great moments of his I have memorized.

Its so simple but hilarious

One of his lines I'm always tempted to use. When he or one of his characters would see something being touted as a big accomplishment, he would say something like "You win a cookie!"

I don't feel like tearing down something right and left, but when I do, I think of that line.

I've always thought that even without the insults, that face would've taken him a long way in comedy.

One joke of his that never wears thin for me is when he says something gushy for a change to one of his friends, then turns away and rolls his eyes. It's an incredibly simple joke, but it always works.

I've been watching the Beach Movies, and of course he was in several of them. Maybe it's true what they say that he was usually hampered a little by a script, but he manages to be very funny in those. Maybe his best moments in one are in BIKINI BEACH, where he's being lectured by Keenan Wynn as the comical "square" of the story, and he keeps making those faces of his at Wynn.
