    [cite]Posted By: DA9[/cite]Would like to add that I absolutely love Derek & Clive, although technically they are an act, comic ad lib genius from Peter Cook & Dudley Moore.

    Totaly agree. That reminds me i have to go and take my mum around some jaffa Cakes.

    Now, do you mean you're going put some Jaffa Cakes in the road which you'll do a slalom round, or are you going to take her some Jaffa Cakes, which you'll shove in her gob?
  • Jimmy Carr and Frankie Boyle are really good on panel comedy shows, but as stand ups they are really poor, I don't like their style of comedy where it's all mainly just one liners. Same with Bill Bailey, very good on QI and Never Mind The Buzzcocks but I don't like for stand up the way he mixes music with comedy.

    My faves would be:
    Dara O Briain
    Lee Evans
    Michael Mcentrye (a bit overrated but very funny)
    Lee Mack
    Rich Hall
    Jo Brand (the only decent female stand up)
    Reganld D Hunter (only black stand up I find funny)
    Omjid Dhali
    Sean Lock
  • Glad to see Russell Howard getting a kicking - he's woeful Really don't know how he's made it onto the telly. He looks like a kids TV presenter so maybe that's it. While I immediately though McIntyre was an idiot, I defy anyone who can watch him and keep a completely straight face.

    Mark Watson is very funny, pleased to hear him crop up on Fighting Talk. As someone mentioned, the German fella is hilarious on that too.

    Chris Rock's bit about guns on Bowling For Columbine was so funny I recently downloaded a comedy album of his for a car journey. I'm no prude, but it was utterly disgusting. I expected better from him, especially after I saw him interviewed on the documentary, The Comedian, by my undisputed favourite stand up comedian of all time, Jerry Seinfeld. "You notice they call it Rhinoplasty? Is that really necessary? I mean, we're already aware there's a problem..."

    i once saw a gig that featured an American dude, looked like he was out of Kings Of Leon with the long beard and so on. He had a really deep husky voice and held the mic close to his mouth for effect. He killed me. So funny. No idea who he was though. If you know who Im talking about, let me know!!
  • Ricky Grover is quite amusing, and even if he wasn't I wouldn't say so, cos he's well hard.

    Not sure - I think it's because they're apparently comedians, but aren't funny?

    Man you should see him skipping. The siamese twins sketch was hilarious.

    Well I thought I would send Robin round, no reason, just thought I would send him round.
  • Dave Allen, Mark Thomas, George Carlin, Jerry Seinfeld, Bill Hicks, Jon Stewart, David Chapelle...
  • Ooooh - Dave Allen is a shout. Absolute genius. Also, no Seth - you;re not alone. Used to love John Hegley and John Cooper-Clarke, another comic\poet (you don't see either of them on the telly any more)
  • Jon Richardson is my current favourite, brilliant every time I have seen him (3 times at various comedy clubs0
    Carl Donnolly is also decent
    Kevin Bridges
    Dave Fulton, been on the circuit for a while and very funny imho

    If it was an older bloke, (or younger bloke on older footage) could be George Carlin?

  • Saw Tim Minchin on telly for the first time last night.;Not my thing at all just found him irritating. Luckily flicked through channels and there was a program on Joyce Grenfell.......much better.

    Tim Minchin wouldn't be everyones cup of tea. His songs are better than his stand up but I enjoy both. Angry Feet and If I Didn't Have You are on you tube, very different which I like. Quite a talented musician/comedian imo.

    Going to see Rich Hall in November for 15 squids in Southend. Thought that was a bargain. Can't wait for that one.

    Seen Jo Brand live. Deals with hecklers brilliantly and I do find her amusing even if she is Palace. Unfortunately it was during her Through the Cake Hole stage and her material was a lil stale from overkill. Her fictional books are seriously funny in places and also her autobiography. Bit like Frank Skinner used to be a big fan but think it was mainly from his Fantasy Football days. Went off him when he had his own show and his singing was cringeworthy. Good autobiograhpy as well.
  • Not a massive fan of going to headliner gigs in massive theatres. Over the years I've gone to many shows at the likes of Up The Creek and others and I've seen most of the comedians that people pay £30 to sit and watch in lines up close with a beer in my hand. Support your local club and stop spending cash on money spinning arena shows.
  • Although I do not buy the DVDs or go to all the shows, the two that stand out are David Mitchell and Jack Whitehall. Very funny men.

    The Comedy Store was always a good night out. It's 10 mins from where I work but we've not been since the smoking ban and I always have to leave early to get home by train.
  • Just watched the film . American : The Bill Hicks story.

    It's superb . If anyone gets the chance to see it , do so.

    The comedy store is a quality night out, though isn't much cheaper than the big shows all in. Saw Mike Gunn there over the summer and he was really funny.

    Best value is getting tickets for Live at the Apollo/Comedy Roadshow or even the panel shows. I find this site or this one reliable for getting tickets.
  • off to see reginald d hunter tonight in bromley - never been to the venue or seen him before.
