Sorry for the double post but even her and my boy think he's funny.
And they ain't got the great sense of humour that I have.
Quite frankly, she finds Steven. k. Amos funny.
Miranda too.
Both the unfunniest of c**ts but she reckons Tim Vine is funny.
Make of that what you will!

No you're not.

Anyway, I like too many to list really, I think David Mitchell is class though, and Richard Ayoade!

Is Tim Vine the chap from Not Going Out?

I don't like Time Vine...from what I've seen from the adverts anyway.

With stand up comedians, they all get stale eventually. I used to love Jimmy Carr, now I'm a bit sick of him. I watched some Kevin Hart on Netflix a few months ago and I thought he was ace. I'm not a fan of Lee Evans, he can make me laugh but I don't think he's hilarious and find his physical stuff annoying and his end of show singing infuriates me.

Oh and I think stand up women are not funny at all. I'm not being sexist, I genuinely find them annoying...some HAVE made me laugh but only in short bursts.

If we are talking about non-stand up comedians, well it ll depends on the writing! :wink: But yeah David Mitchell is always great, no matter what he's in.

Yes Tim Vine is the bloke from Not Going Out.
I like his mate too. Lee Mack.
I love Milton Jones too.
Palace fan. Apparently.

You do not agree with my quest. I understand that, so much as it is possible to understand someone with whom I disagree so completely.

How could you not find these Tim Vine classics funny, Slicko?

I phoned the local gym and I asked if they could teach me how to do the splits. He said, "How flexible are you?" I said, "I can't make Tuesdays."

"He said 'I'm going to chop off the bottom of one of your trouser legs and put it in a library'. I thought 'That's a turn-up for the books.'"

"And the back of his anorak was leaping up and down, and people were chucking money to him. I said 'Do you earn a living doing that?' He said 'Yes, this is my livelihood.'

"So I was getting into my car, and this bloke says to me "Can you give me a lift?" I said "Sure, you look great, the world's your oyster, go for it.'"

"You know, somebody actually complimented me on my driving today. They left a little note on the windscreen, it said 'Parking Fine.' So that was nice."

"So I went down my local ice-cream shop, and said 'I want to buy an ice-cream'. He said Hundreds & thousands?' I said 'We'll start with one.' He said 'Knickerbocker glory?' I said 'I do get a certain amount of freedom in these trousers, yes.'

I went to Millets and said 'I want to buy a tent.' He said 'To camp?', I said [butchly] 'Sorry, I want to buy a tent.' I said 'I also want to buy a caravan.' He said 'Camper?' I said [campily] 'Make your mind up.'

I want to tell you a bit about myself.. I’m a very quiet and secretive person, and that’s it really.

"Apparently, 1 in 5 people in the world are Chinese. And there are 5 people in my family, so it must be one of them. It's either my mum or my dad. Or my older brother Colin. Or my younger brother Ho-Chan-Chu. But I think it's Colin."

"So I was in my car, and I was driving along, and my boss rang up, and he said 'You've been promoted.' And I swerved. And then he rang up a second time and said "You've been promoted again.' And I swerved again. He rang up a third time and said 'You're managing director.' And I went into a tree. And a policeman came up and said 'What happened to you?' And I said 'I careered off the road.'

I like that scouse bloke but cannot for the life of me remember his name. Frankie Boyle and Michael McIntyre are also favourites of mine.

You need this in your collection, no matter who your favourite is.

I don't really have a favourite though. There's a few I like but anybody can put on a good performance every now and again, even Sarah Millican!
Like a midget at a urinal, I was going to have to stay on my toes.

Yeah Richard Pryor in his day was good.
And 18 sky, there is no such thing as a funny scouser.
They think they're funny but they ain't!
They are about as funny as a Ken Dodd gig.
And Magnifico, surprised at you. Sarah Millican funny?
She is as funny as an orphanage on fire.
The only way she would be funny was if that orphanage was in Brighton or Millwall.
Or possibly Charlton.
And on fire.

Just read that last post back and I am definitely going to hell.
I didn't mean what I said about Ken Dodd.
I hope all orphanages in Brighton, Millwall and Charlton burn to the ground though.
Taking many young lives in the process.

I don't really like Frankie Boyle anymore. I used to when he was on Mock the Week, but then I bought his dvd and every joke he did he'd done on MTW. Then I just started noticing that he just tells one liners the whole time like a Scottish Rodney Dangerfield and it gets on my nerves. I prefer comedians telling a story with a punchline rather than one liner jokes.

I sort of agree with you there.
I used to love Frankie Boyle on stuff like MTW but then we saw his one man show and it was just crude for crudeness sake!
The odd funny bit here and there but the rest was embarrassing to him really.
