There are a slew of influences out there in this wet 'n' wild world. Ya got drugs, alcohol, TV, movies, music - just about everything and anything can make an impression on you. We write a lot about those influences and, for me at least, women seem to be the most influential. I'd say 95% of what I do on a daily basis is based on what women want and like. But, which women are the most influential? We're talkin' no questions asked, they yell jump and you say how high. For better or worse, they've got that captivating and/or motivating mojo.

9 Male Comedians Who Left Us Too Soon

9 Male Comedians Who Left Us Too Soon

Comedians often live a tragic life, it's the only job where you're judged purely on whether they make people happy or not. What if they're not funny? Do they think they're funny? In turn, these types of questions can take a serious toll on a person's body and state of mind, especially once you start taking the amounts of drugs that some of these comedians did. The 80s and 90s certainly seemed like a wild ride, it's just a shame these comedians couldn't hold on for a little longer. We'll miss them terribly. See our list after the jump.

The 11 Most Relevant Stand-up Comedians of 2011 [POLL]

The 11 Most Relevant Stand-up Comedians of 2011 [POLL]

First, let's define "relevant". It's "Closely connected or appropriate to the matter at hand". In terms of stand up comedy, that means having a connection with your audience. You're up there on stage, making observations, and the audience whether they sympathize, empathize, or just process what you're saying and they respond in a favorable way (read: they f***ing laugh and clap). Comedians like Richard Pryor, George Carlin, Eddie Murphy and Jerry Seinfeld became huge celebrities because audiences could relate to them in some way. But those guys aren't "relevant" today. So, who is? Let us break it down for you with today's most relevant comedians in our list after the jump.
