I offer this challenge: If there was a more overall brilliant comedian than Robin Williams, name the person!
There have been some hysterical funny men and funny women, and still are, but in my opinion NO ONE was more brilliant than Williams. I offer for your consideration one of a plethora of "bits" Williams created. Be warned...if you have issues with colorful language, Williams may not be for you, but I defy anyone to share a funnier bit than his take on the origins of golf.
By the way, if you say George Carlin...well I still think Williams is more creative overall, but Carlin would definitely be in contention in my book.
