Eddie Murphy is still the king of comedy.

The "Shrek" star was named Comedy Icon at Comedy Central's first annual U.S. Comedy Awards on Saturday, which honored Murphy's three-decade stand-up and movie career.

The hilarious (and strange) Zach Galifianakis was also named best Comedy Actor in Film for "Dinner for Schmucks."

And while other very funny people like David Letterman, Alec Baldwin and Tina Fey also went home with awards, the event got us thinking about our favorite stand-up comedians.

SODAHEAD SLIDESHOW: Who do you think is the funniest comedian?

Like Chris Rock, known for observations like: "They don't want you to vote. If they did, we wouldn't vote on a Tuesday. In November. You ever throw a party on a Tuesday? No. Because nobody would come."

And Ricky Gervais, who basically insulted all of Hollywood at the recent Golden Globes.

Let us know: Who is the funniest comedian?
