Sirius XM launched their new station, Comedy Greats on Thursday by paying tribute to the comedians who didn’t make the top 50 countdown cut. Inaugural hosts and legends, Jim Norton, Sherrod Small and Dan Soder debuted the show with more of a discussion on comedy — nixing a countdown all together and playing clips from some greats who just didn’t grab a top spot.

Nortons countdown takeover was just the first of many that will air on the 27/7 comedy station. This time the live audience chimed in, and even suggested clips for the show, showcasing comedians like John Mulaney, Brian Regan, Lisa Lampanelli, Pat Cooper and Ralphie May.

Comedy Greats will highlight the most legendary, and important comedians and stand up performers of all time. Sirius XM listeners will also get to access to special countdown takeovers by various comics who will discuss their favorite comedians, and those who impacted and their careers.

To kick off the show, Sirius XM asked listeners to vote for who they thought should make the top 50 countdown. The all time legends obviously top the list: George Carlin grabbing the number one spot, Richard Pryor at number two, and Robin Williams at number three, followed by Eddie Murphy and Chris Rock.

But it isn’t well into the list that you start seeing the best female talent grabbing seats. Joan Rivers snagged the number 13 spot, followed by Ellen DeGeneres at #14. Roseanne came in at #20, but Sarah Silverman and Amy Schumer were the only other ladies to make the list, coming in at numbers #34 and #43.

Below is the XM listeners top 50 comedians of all time. What do you think? Agree or disagree with any of the top contenders? Who do you think should have made the list? Leave us a comment below!
