    I think Michael Mcintyre has been built up so much, his appeal will start to sag soon

    Stewart Lee, Bill Bailey and Dylan Moran, none of whom you've mentioned for some wholly unaccountable reason.
    The ones i mentioned are personal taste, and most other people seem to agree. I could'nt mention every current comedian due to the max 16 choices allowed, and most importantly because it would'nt be worth it. I belive the ones I have mentioned apart from Al Murray, are the top comedians around at the moment, Dylan Moran ive never heard of, i wonder why? Bill Bailey since he left Never mind the Buzzcocks, ive lost intrest. and Stewart Lee is half decent but would'nt make it onto my list. sorry.

    Yeah; and Flo Rida is more talented than King Crimson.

    Stewart Lee is the most gifted comedian alive; Bill Bailey isn't far behind. If you honestly think that anyone you've mentioned thus far (with the possible exception of Al Murray) comes near to this:





    You must be clinically insane.

    Russell Howard. I saw his live stand up show and it was amazing! Saw him after in the signing and he was really nice as well :p:
    He's brilliant, but always works the same material to death before finding new stuff.

    I voted Russell Howard, Michael Mcintyre, Frankie Boyle and Jason Manford.

    Also, for me Steve Hughes and Steven K Amos would be on the list, especially Amos. Oh and Bill Bailey.

    That's true, in the past few episodes of Mock the Week he has told jokes from his tour! In the stand up rounds as well he has just said tour stuff :p: I don't mind though, it's still funny the second time round
    Michael Mcintyre is also great, I'm going to see him in October!
