Billy Connolly is a great shout. Absolutely brilliant. I used to love the BBC series he did a fair few years back, basically touring New Zealand. That was a fantastic watch.

Frank Skinner is right up there too. 

Right now, I'm a massive fan of Joe Lycett. He's got a consumer complaint series coming up, that should be hilarious.

Joe Lycett is funny from Hall Green and a baggie, his twitter when we beat Liverpool and Man U were ace

Well, not very accurately anyway

Best live stand-ups I've seen recently were Henning Wehn and Ross Noble. Dylan Moran is underwhelming live (seen him a few times) - cutting out the booze hasn't sharpened his act up at all. Honourable mention for Miles Jupp, whose mildly upper-crust persona is very well-observed.

I'd like to see Rhod Gilbert perform live, also Dara O'Briain.

She doesn't stand up very often these days either.

And when she does it rarely goes well.

Dylan Moran was terrible last time I saw him.

Reading on how could I forget...

Jasper Carrot
Les Dawson

Peter Kay gives me the creeps

Ditto re: Kay - how the fuck he has made a career out of remembering things and then saying them out loud to make simpletons laugh is beyond me

No Mickey Flanagan?! I can watch the same stuff again and again and still laugh. The demise of fingering, Shits abroad, Women getting drunk, Peeping - all hilarious. Especially considering he's a cockney herbert.
