I very fond of Billy Bailey at the mo. Very entertaing and he is versatile (playing multiple instruments to a high standard) and doesn't need to swear and is surreal which all appeal to me.

Ken Dodd: Corny, but hilarious. Always gives value for money with his lengthy encores. I just hope my brain is as quick when I'm 80 !!!

We are pretty blessed in the UK, British stand up is just great. Michael MacIntire (sorry spelling off) just gets better, so observant. Ricky Gervaise, always 100%, Eddy Izzard gets my vote cos I have worked with him and he just cracks me up without trying.

Bill Bailey is a constant joy to watch. Not only is he often impossibly funny, but he's a uniquely fascinating musician. I can't get enough of him!

I have been to so many stand up shows...the towering performance was...unexpectedly...Lenny Henry... big heart, huge presence...
I also love the depths to which Frankie Boyle will go..he dredges deep!!

Perhaps this should come under a new thread of "Funniest dead comedian" but Dave Allen was one of the few guys that I have seen to make me laugh so much it hurt.
Billy Connollys ability to stretch out a story whilst flying off at a tangent and then returning to the original story right at the end of the show always cracks me up, but he's not dead yet. Neither is Bill Bailey who is a genius {although not to everyones taste}.

spot on with Dave Allen and the Big Yin

Some really good shouts here. I'm a fan of most of those already mentioned. Rhod Gilbert and Ardal O'Hanlon are two more who've never failed to make me laugh loud and long. Also, Alexei Sayle back in his early 80's heyday was a superb standup and Craig Ferguson (a.k.a Bing Hitler) came up with some quality material in the late 80's/early 90's, before going stateside and becoming a talk show host.
