So yeah - been done before, but with new people and the capacity for more choices, let's do it again - I've tried to do a broad cross section of old & new comics, and there's always the ubiquitous 'Other'.

Vote now, and give your reasons.

Please.

I would like to change my answer (can't actually remember who I voted for now) to Daniel Kitson. I saw him last night and he is the funniest stand-up I have ever seen. I'm going to see him again on the 1st of Feb and I may start stalking him in the not too distant future.

You know it makes sense! I've seen him around half a dozen times and always laughed so much it hurts - when we saw him at the fringe this year he overran by half an hour - bonus!

He's at the Brixton Comedy Club compering until the end of Feb, I think - must get down there but it's on a Sunday and every Sunday I seem to be doing something, like tonight for instance - arggghh!

He's also playing the Hen & Chickens in Islington working on his festival show for this year - I think he's there for the next coupla weeks, and I'll definitely be seeing him perform that at the Fringe.

I think I was in some pain last night, he was the compare for the Just the Tonic Tsunami benefit gig. He did a lot of plate smashing and sweeping - funnier than it sounds. Watching him trying to get Johnny Vegas to draw a raffle was blissful. I thought he was crying at one point, I think Vegas had a nervous breakdown. I'm not sure how long the show was supposed to last, but I'm guessing it overran since it started at 7:30pm and ended about ten past twelve after 3/4 of the (2000 strong) audience had walked out thanks to Vegas' incoherant rambling. It was awesome, like watching a car crash.

Oh and Kitson's adorable too, especially his stutter. I think I'd like to marry him. Something I never thought I'd say about Spencer out of Phoenix Nights, just goes to show you never can tell.

Kitson and Vegas on the same bill - you lucky thing!

I've often used the car crash analogy to describe watching Johnny - you do worry for him at times.

You certainly do - last time I saw him in Edinburgh he asked one of the audience to get him some Aftershocks from the bar and about ten minutes later puked them back up onstage. Shortly afterwards he encouraged the audience to hurl coins at him which quite a lot of them did. Ouch.
