Have to agree on Lee Evans, the man just isn't funny. That Jethro clown is about as funny as typhoid too.

I fail to see what's so special about Dara O'Briain - I think there's a slightly smug, self-congratulatory side to him as well. I do rate Ross Noble though - there is a whiff of the ingenue about him and he can make the totally mundane seem abstract which is I imagine is pretty hard to do. I rate Sean Lock too.

I know a lot of people love him, but I think Frankie Boyle is very overrated. He's funny on Mock the Week, but not in stand up - and now that he's quit Mock the Week, I can't help but feel his career will go downhill...

Ricky Gervais - I keep having to remind myself I'm supposed to laugh when I feel like slapping the smug git.

Rob Brydon - Is boring the new funny ? Sorry must have missed that lecture.

Dennis Leary - Bill Hicks is laughing at you from Heaven you sell out.

Thing is, who's rating any of them highly in the first place, although personally I like most of those named here. Cant abide Gervais though. Something tells me unless you're Jonathan Ross or one of his other showbiz cronies he wouldnt be a nice person to know. A bit of a c*** probably.

Didnt know Frankie quit MTW. Might as well pull the plug on it now.
Going back a bit, I see now one's yet mentioned Ben Elton, French and Saunders and most of the rest of that ex-drama college/Jongleurs/Cambridge Footlights 'alternative comedy' crowd Manning hated. Of course he was also sh*t as were the rest of that type of comedian.

I sat through an episode of 'Mighty Boosh'. God I wish I hadn't bothered, but I was curious. The only thing that was remotely funny was a guitar-playing squirral, and I still felt I was forcing a smile. Maybe at 43 I'm not in the target audience, but this programme is just lousy.

At last, a thread where one can be objective! This is easy, Michael McIntyre and Silver Silverman, the latter seeming to radiate smugness to the nth degree. Still at least she thinks she's funny.

that carr bloke

I totally agree with you...Ricky Gervais is a non-entity and how he became so popular is beyond me...the man is cringingly unfunny and plays the same character in everything he does! Totally devoid of so many you see on the telly these days - highly disturbing. If only we could bring back Laurel and Hardy. Now, they were talented.
