OK, not really a stand-up but is there any better improvised comedy in Britain today than his Saturday morning Radio 2 shows?


Let me think . . . . Paul Merton perhaps and HE still does live stuff. Bit of a sloppy and unwarrented list, what is this obsesive intrest in the 50/100 best of everything. I think David Icke was onto something - the Lizard people are brainwashing us into being crazy list people, sitting around watching Channel 4 rocking backwards and forwards and saying "Number one, definatley number one" like Rain Man when were asked "Where will The Simpsons place in the 50 Greatest Yellow Things ever?"

Sorry bit of a rant there you'll have to excuse me I feel in need of a rest.

That was a fairly good list, apart from the over-simplified categorisations, ie. Dylan Moran is obervational and grumpy. Or Billy Connolly is obervational and spontaneous.

But the important people got mentioned. Billy Connolly, Bill Bailey, Ross Noble, Dylan Moran, Alan Carr, Rich Hall, Daniel Kitson, Sean Lock, Chris Addison, Eddie Izzard, Russell Brand, John Oliver etc.

Some folk would want a list which consisted entirely of household names because otherwise they feel left out.
Some folks would want an exclusively club-circuit list so they could feel very alternative and superior to the people who didn't recognize the names.

In my opinion, this is a fair list which strikes a good balance and comedy fans will pretty much agree with and appreciate.

Yes, that's what most people here would have wanted.

Or perhaps they like comedians that aren't very well known yet, but are very good?

Don't be ridiculous - if they're very good, they must be well known. 'tch.

This forum's current favourite double act didn't make the list. Does that mean SpacedOut is cutting edge, or far too traditional? Confusing.

Looking at the list, it does say Stand-Up. I guess it should be retitle 50 Finest Stand-Up Comedians. V&B haven't done theatre in while.

Wossy is there and they acknowledge he isn't a stand-up as such.
