You have to be really, really tough-skinned. There's lots of traveling... You're not just in big cities; you're in small towns, mini malls, strip malls...lots of places where, literally, the soup of the day got top billing,

Ellen DeGeneres has won the Shindigz Party Poll for Favorite Stand-Up comedian with former favorite Robin Williams coming in a close second.

DeGeneres, who started doing stand-up in the early 1980's will complete her tenth year of the syndicated Ellen show in September, 2013. Earlier in her career she told W magazine, "You have to be really, really tough-skinned. There's lots of traveling, lots of being by yourself, lots of really rude drunk people. You're not just in big cities; you're in small towns, mini malls, strip malls...lots of places where, literally, the soup of the day got top billing."

Robin Williams, who started in stand-up in the 1970's, rose to national fame with the television show Mork and Mindy and has over 60 films to his credit.

Also on the list for 2013 were Bill Cosby, Jerry Seinfield, Jim Gaffigan and Larry the Cable Guy.
