Because the people answering the survey would have him confused as well, and thought "Alan Bennett is a shit stand-up", because he isn't one. There would have been lots of lesser known stand-ups in the poll (I presume), who wouldn't have made it onto either list. So essentially it is that Alan Bennett, because people would have been thinking of him rather than the relatively unknown comedian, but it's a bit unfair as it's like naming Alan Carr's autobiography the least successful method for giving up smoking.

People must have been voting for their least favourite, there's no way Harry Hill and Russell Brand would have recieved an 'indifferent' amount of votes.

No Billy Connolly, Frank Skinner or (in the "bad" poll) Jim Davidson is a little surprising.

Yes I know, but he's hardly known as a comedian. If it is that Alan Bennett, he's a bizarre inclusion. It'd be like including Patrick Marber.

But if you look on the lists everyone is pretty much a household name. So why would the "other" Alan Bennett be on there?


I assume he's on there because he won So You Think You're Funny, as did Peter Kay. But I agree that most people probably thought they were voting for Alan Bennett, rather than Alan Bennett.

I have a feeling the voters may have had to chose from an already decided shortlist, and perhaps the whole thing is some kind of market research survey.

Also those that compiled the list probably have never seen much stand-up and spend their time in front of the TV watching mainly chat shows and panel/comedy quiz shows
