I'm assuming you mean "standup" comedians. In that case :

Dane Cook
Mitch Fatel
Lewis Black
Brian Posehn
Jim Gaffigan

That's my top 6, can't cut it down to 5. It's in no particular order.

Edit: Forgot Kat Williams, so make it a top 7.

Poeshn, Galifinakis, David Cross, Michael Ian Black, Patton Oswalt, and Aziz Ansari are some of my current favorites. I have seen a ton of standup live, and all those guys put on a good show.

I'm not talking about just the people on this site but it seems like people in general have really low standards for standup comedy. Theres a lot of comedians who have no business on a stage yet you ask around and people are listing them as their favorite comics.

Mitch Hedberg will always and forever be my favorite. RIP. Demetri Martin is another one I really like, he's in the same vein of non sequiter comedy as Heberg, sort of a kinder, gentler Hedberg.

Jim Gaffigan is terrific. Daniel Tosh is, too.

If Conan, Colbert and Stewart still count, then I'm a huge fan of all of them.

Lewis Black is great, but his act has worn thin.

Dave Chappelle, of course.

Others ( off the top of my head; mostly Comedy Central Presents standups, some all-time classics too):

-Richard Pryor
-George Carlin
-Norm McDonald
-Kevin Nealon
-Jeff Ross
-Sarah Silverman
-Alonzo Bodden
-Patton Oswalt
-Stephen Lynch
-Brian Regan
-Nick Swardson
-Zack Galafianakis
-Reggie McFadden
-Chris Rock
-Eddie Murphy
-Bob Marley (different guy, not the singer)

I think a lot of those guys you call "wack" and don't know who they are, are a lot funnier than a lot of celebrity standups. I watch a ton of standup, and of the guys you said were "wack" or didn't know who they were, I'd say Poeshn, Galifinakis, and Michael Ian Black are all very funny. Patton Oswalt and David Cross are also good but their act, like Lewis Black, is wearing on me a bit.

This is some serious bullsh*t. How come everytime a comedian thread comes up, nobody EVER f*cking mentions Robin Williams! Hands down the best ever. 2nd Richard Prior. 3rd is Jerry Seinfeld.

I like Ron White, he's hilarious, I can't stand any of those other guys he does shows with. My list

Jimeoin
Dylan Moran
Henry Rollins (He doesn't call it comedy, but he's funny as hell, so he goes on the list)
Carl Barron
David Strassman (Technically a ventriloquist)
Dennis Miller
