Mt. Rushmore of Living Legends of Comedy:

Dave Letterman - He's the king of late night. Late night comedy owes more to him than anyone

Dave Chappelle - His is the most influential sketch show of the last thirty years, and it holds up. SNL gets all the attention, but its influence is fleeting and it's never been very funny. He is also the greatest living stand-up.

John Stewart - His influence is obvious in everything from sketch comedies to late night shows that do the comedy news schtick.

Jerry Seinfeld - He's up against Louis C.K. for this last spot, depending on whether you think the Seinfeld-style sitcom or the Louie-style sitcom is more influential on television today, and how willing you are to ignore Louis' misdeeds.

Late night/stand-up/sketch/news/sitcom, all bases covered.

I think Letterman, Carlin, Kinison, Seinfeld, Chapelle, Louie are the greatest.

Also Pryor and Eddie Murphy belong near.

Add Bill Cosby. He may be a shitheel, but you can’t deny his talent.

My personal Rushmore, the four that are most meaningful to me, the closest to my heart, would be Conan, Chappelle, John Stewart, and Louis C.K.
But for the real Rushmore, you can't put Conan on there while Letterman is still alive. 100% undeniable that there would be no Conan without Letterman
