As Mario points out, Chester Himes is a brilliant absurdist in his Gravedigger Jones and Coffin Ed books.

There are also a number of recent British authors working in the category of hardboiled absurdism -- I've particularly enjoyed Nicholas Blincoe, James Hawes, Ken Bruen and Charles Higson. And, of course, there's the movie Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels.
