Favourite Comedians?

Anyone else like to watch Comedians online or going to their show?

I’m quite a fan of Lee Evans and Michael McIntyre

I love them both but my Boyfriend says I like dry humor so…

You would like Jack Dee then

Sean Lock was by far the funniest person I ever saw on TV.

Lee Mack is good. Tim Vine is very clever.

Stewart Lee is probably the comedian I’ve seen most live.

Stewart Lee is very good.

I’d rate James Acaster as my current number one. I also enjoy the comedy stylings of Katherine Ryan.

I recall enjoying Ross Noble back in the day.

And one I’ve never got to see myself but have always heard raves about is Daniel Kitson. Has anyone here seen one of his shows? Is he really that good?

Not sure if this is an unpopular opinion or not. I know he polarises people but Ricky Gervais is a comedy genius.

Apart from Derek.

Gervais in The Office was very good. Big Keith’s annual appraisal “don’t know” was hilarious (and accurate from my experience!).

I love so many comedians!

Rhod Gilbert
Greg Davies
Russell Kane
Rosie Jones
Kiri Pritchard-McLean
Rachel Fairburn
Russell Howard
Joe Lycett
Munya Chawawa

I recently heard Fatima El Ghorri for the first time on the Russell Howard Wonderbox podcast and she was hysterical!

I can’t believe I didn’t mention Rhod. There’s one particular bit of his that is amazing and unforgettable. It’s a perfect spiral into chaos. “What tog is it?”

How about French & Saunders?

15 posts in and no-one has mentioned Tommy Cooper or Dave Allen?

Must be an age thing.

I would guess most on Monzo are under 50 and probably be like who?

I would put the two Ronnie’s and Tommy Cooper in my parents gen, I do remember watching them as a kid though. Unmatched comedy

They liked shows like Yes Minister and Drop the Dead Donkey. And of course Faulty Towers and Monty Python.
