The best comedians in the world are Jack/Booty ripping the shit out of each other in the pub, my sides used to ache like hell after a run ashore. You have to be carefull with mivvys as they very often don't get it and come over all upset/offering you out. Omid Djalily is about the best out there at the mo, I do not mean that guff on the beeb, saw his live stand up and like Jack he ripped EVERYONE to bits, kicking off with Geordies, moving on to his own people, Iran and everything else in between. He is a superb mimic and had me in stiches as his delivery was relentless, As for the rest, Mr Sweaty Lee Evans is ok but his material is getting a bit thin, he gets a vote for his energy and being a mean tinkler of the ivories. Al Murray is an aquired taste, his rap with the audience sometimes takes off but I would not buy his video. Peter Kay is a fat bastard but he sure as hell is not funny, same/similar material for yonks, when he managed to pull his head out of his arse long enough to calaborate with Dave Spikey we got Phoenix Nights which did hit the spot.....a bit. On his own he is garbage as is Phil Jupitus but an even fatter bastard than Kay. Recent poll said Connoly was the funniest man in Britain, 25 years ago maybe but not now, what little respect I had for him was lost when it showed him ''preparing'' for a gig, giving it the tortured artist routine as though he was Sir Larry........FFS he is an ex welders mate from Govan. Would have loved to have been in the audience in Honky Fid when an assortment of Jack and a detachment of Gorden Highlanders had him off stage 5 minutes after coming on. Were it not for Parkinson sucking his cock at every given opportunity he would have died a death years ago. So, what do you think ?.
