Bishop is not a comedian, he's a storyteller.

I loved Billy Connelly back in his heyday. Omid Djallili is pretty good from what little I've seen of him. I like a bit of Rich Hall too.

I reckon your pretty much bang on so far, RBT. Peter Kay was funny the first time, Bishop is ridiculously unfunny and Sarah blah blah is absolute crap.

Personally I find Lee Evans hilarious. Same goes for Jack Dee, I nearly died the once watching him. I was eating a mint and he told this joke about a dog and "BANG" I was choking to death before my dad did that thing where you whack it out by squeezing your stomach!

Ill find a video on YouTube, but its an american and he was performing in Wolverhampton and he absolutely ripped apart a small town called "Bilston". Most of you won't get it but anyone on here from Wolverhampton or close will get it and love it.

What about Lee Evans? He ain't too bad i've had a good old chuckle thanks to him a few times.

But Andy Parsons from Mock the Weeks can f**k off and die a slow painful death the unfunny c**t. Seriously why the f**k does that t**t think he's funny and god only knows why some other stupid bastard at the BBC keeps on bringing him back.

I like Bill Hicks but I sometimes think me milks his jokes too much. Maybe it's for the american audience I don't know.

Almost every big Bill Hicks fan I know has a superiority complex. At least when it comes to Bill Hicks.

He's ok, I just don't think he's like, you know, so on it n stuff.

Maybe I've just only seen the wrong material, I mean I wouldn't judge anybody by their performance on Live at the Apollo.

I forgot to mention Jack Dee. Always good for a laugh. Lee Evans is the sweatiest man in the world. You don't see many people sweating through every inch of a suit!

I never 'got' Lee Evans.
Love Tim Vine though.
Or did I say that already?
And here is just a small selection of his gems....

I was stealing things in the supermarket today while balanced on the shoulders of vampires. I was charged with shoplifting on three counts.

I bought a train ticket and the driver said "Eurostar" I said "Well I've been on telly but I'm no Dean Martin? Still, at least it's comfortable on Eurostar, it's murder on the Orient Express...

I'm so lazy I've got a smoke alarm with a snooze button.

I bought some Armageddon cheese today, and it said on the packet 'Best Before End...'

So I went to buy a watch, and the man in the shop said "Analogue." I said "No, just a watch."

I went into a shop and I said, "Can someone sell me a kettle." The bloke said "Kenwood" I said, "Where is he?"

So I went in to a pet shop. I said, "Can I buy a goldfish?" The guy said, "Do you want an aquarium?" I said, "I don't care what star sign it is."

I was in this restaurant and I asked for something herby. They gave me a Volkswagen with no driver.

I don't often watch a lot of comedians, but the standout 3 for me would have to be;

David Strassman

Heath Franklin's Chopper

and Chubby Brown

How could I forget Andy Zaltzman and John Oliver. Maybe not for everybody but when 'god' interrupts them about one and a half minutes in it's gold and just gets better. Possibly one of the best double acts in my opinion.
