Whos your fave? I went to a cheap comedy night tonight and saw some big names rehearsing new material, David O Doherty, Ardal O Hanlon, Jarlath Regan, Dead Cat Bounce and a new Irish/.Sri Lankan called Paul Tyler, highlight of the night by miles.

Ardal O Hanlon (Dougal from Father Ted for those who dont know him) was muck when i saw him in Kilkenny 2 years ago, but credit where its due, he was miles better tonight, with some dingers such as
" I was meant to play a gig here in November, but my wife had a baby on the day of the gig..........what a selfish bitch! I'd planned that gig for ages...",

and

" When you're married for years, nothing puts you off sex anymore, like the other night, me and the missus were having grrrrreat earth shattering sex, shouting our heads off, when the missus let out an enormous big fart......not to be put off, or indeed, outdone, I came back with a few growlers of my own.....honestly, the kids must of thought a brass band were warming up in mummy and Daddys room"
And Pavlos might be interested to hear he informed us that a Cassock is an anagram of ass and cock!

I never tire of watching Tommy Cooper or Billy Connolly. I also really like Rich Hall.

Well it's Tommy Cooper and Billy Connolly for me too, both have made me cry from laughing.

and Dublin, rest assured the word "cassock" is feminine. (except where the german impostor is concerned)

I got the big Laurel & Hardy box set for my birthday - fantastic stuff. I've been watching it with my kids who also love it.

Peter Cook, when on form, was brilliant. As was Spike Milligan.

I love Morecambe and Wise, The Two Ronnies also had their great moments, but I'd guess that those aren't really 'stand up'. Eddie Izzard is incredibly funny and incredibly clever too, as is The Big Yin. Of the current new crop Dara O'Briain is probably my favourite, very clever how he just works off the audience to get a lot of his routine.

Stewart Lee is my fave by a mile. Bill Hicks, Doug Stanhope, Craig Campbell and Mark Steel all good as well.

Never found Billy Connolly funny

Didn't Russell Brand win a lifetime achievement award at the British Comedy Awards the other night? He's about as funny as a dose of the clap.

I enjoy watching Richard Pryor and Kevin Bridges.

If lifetime achievement awards were only given to dead people it would have been richly deserved.

Bill Hicks, Chris Morris. Seen Ardal O'Hanlon, Rich Hall, Julian Clary, Frankie Boyle, Dara O'Briain and a fair few others.

I think if you have a look at the Frankie Boyle thread, there was a lot of comedian discussion on there.

There was also the rather splendid favourite comedy sketch thread which is worthwhile...

Pappy's Fun Club hilarious?

I'll second the Stewart Lee nomination, awesome stand up and Fist Of Fun and TMWRNJ were fantastic.

Saw him in Birmingham a few weeks back - he still describes himself as a musician. Very, very funny and at times in an uncomfortable way.

I went to school with one of the members of Pappy's fun club - he was a most unfunny/unentertaining individual, no natural wit whatsoever, and in my view he's just as unfunny now - how he's made a career out of making people laugh is beyond me

Some background: Paddy described Pappy's Fun Club as "hilarious", we found this video:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ip3RkhhNikI

Quite clearly not hilarious. Cue Paddy having hissy fit while we slagged them off. I don't know if he still finds that hilarious.
