Field of 64 - Comedians - Elite 8 round

Way overdue on this, please accept my apologies. I have been busy lately, and was waiting on some clarification for some votes cast in the last round. I didn't get a response, so I broke the tie myself.

Here is a link to the last round

Once again, I want to make sure everyone understands the rules, I made a slight amendment this week.

Recap of the rules.

1. Vote for all of the matchups. If you don't like either, or can't decide who you like better, flip a coin. When counting votes for 32 matchups, it is easier to know I tallied everything correctly if all matchups have the same number of votes.
2. Please use BOLD to indicate who you are voting for, the strikethrough functionality does not seem to be working(as a test, I used the strikethough funtionality for that last part), but keep your response in a list form, including the areas (east, west, etc.) Again, this just makes it easier for me to count up the votes
3. Not really a rule, but feel free to make comments on the matchups if you like. It makes for interesting reading.

Onto the new Matchups.

#2 Rodney Dangerfield #6 Bob Hope

#1 George Carlin #3 Bill Cosby

#2 Eddie Murphy #6 Redd Foxx

#1 Richard Pryor #3 Robin Williams

Votes should be cast by Friday Feb 27th. (or sometime around then)

Field of 64 - Comedians - Sweet 16

Time for a new round, and yes once again I am late with getting the votes counted. Too much stuff going on right now to keep a set schedule, so I will post an end time, but the voting may go on for a few extra days in case I get too busy again.

I wanted to thank everyone for their participation, and the kind words you have to say about my little games. If you have your own blog game, feel free to post a link when you submit your votes. I play in quite a few of your games, and don't mind joining more. I usually see them since I add anybody who posts here to my favorites.

Recap of the rules.

1. Vote for all of the matchups. If you don't like either, or can't decide who you like better, flip a coin. When counting votes for 32 matchups, it is easier to know I tallied everything correctly if all matchups have the same number of votes.
2. You can bold your selection, or cross out the one you don't like, but keep your response in a list form, including the areas (east, west, etc.) Again, this just makes it easier for me to count up the votes
3. Not really a rule, but feel free to make comments on the matchups if you like. It makes for interesting reading.

Results of the last round, and my thoughts on the matchups.

#1 Woody Allen 12 #10 Billy Crystal 25 Two people didn't vote on this one, but that was probably due to a typo on my part. I gave a vote to each participant to be fair, but looks like I could have given both to Woody and he still would have lost. I like Billy better.
#2 Rodney Dangerfield 31
#8 Red Skelton 6 Rodney getting some respect, tough matchup but I would have went with Rodney
#3 Bob Newhart 15 #6 Bob Hope 22 Another tough matchup, but I would have voted for Bob Hope
#4 Jonathan Winters 25
#5 Buddy Hackett 12 Man, this was a rough group, toss up here, but probably would have went with Buddy

#1 George Carlin 32 #12 Henny Youngman 5 - George wins easily, just like he did
#2 Chris Rock 24 #8 Steven Wright 13 See comments above, replace George with Chris
#3 Bill Cosby 32 #7 Andy Kaufman 5 Andy had some great routines, but was a bit odd at times, I like the Cos better.
#4 Don Rickles 28 #6 Albert Brooks 9 Don Rickles easily.

#1 Lenny Bruce 32 #8 Phyllis Diller 5 Sorry Phyllis, the tribe has spoken.
#2 Eddie Murphy 23 #7 Jack Benny 14 - Eddie wins
#3 Jerry Seinfeld 17 #6 Redd Foxx 20 Another close vote for Jerry, but this time he comes up short, I would have voted for Redd
#4 Sam Kinison 10 #5 Carol Burnett 27 Kind of a surprise here, I would have went with Sam

#1 Richard Pryor 26 #11 George Burns 11 - How could you vote out God? George would have been my choice
#2 Steve Martin 34 #8 Dennis Miller 3 I really don't like Dennis Miller, so I would have went with Steve.
#3 Robin Williams 27 #7 Milton Berle 10 - Really hard choice here, but Robin Williams is pretty darn funny.
#4 Bill Hicks 5#5 Johnny Carson 32 No surprise here.

Now for the new matchups. Shouldn't get any easier from here on out, although the first group lost a 1 and 3 seed.

#2 Rodney Dangerfield #10 Billy Crystal
#4 Jonathan Winters #6 Bob Hope

#1 George Carlin #4 Don Rickles
#2 Chris Rock #3 Bill Cosby

#1 Lenny Bruce #6 Redd Foxx
#2 Eddie Murphy #5 Carol Burnett

#1 Richard Pryor #5 Johnny Carson
#2 Steve Martin #3 Robin Williams

Voting will close on Monday, February 2nd (or maybe a couple days later)
