Just heard Billy Connolly describe Max Wall as the greatest comedian this country has ever produced.
I wouldn't argue with him, but I know many people who've never even heard of him, which is very sad.
Any thoughts on your own particular favourites?

I like lots of them for different reasons. At the end of the day it's the joke they're telling at that point in time, but nobody has yet to produce consistently good material that makes me laugh every time I see them. Like everyone else, they have good moments and less good moments although to be fair just looking at Marty Feldman made me smile.

Billy Connolly has to be up there as one of the best, saw him on one of his last live shows a few years ago just before he was diagnosed with Parkinsons. He wasn't at his peak but still funnier than most other comedians.
Max Wall i remember vaguely with his bald head and funny walk but i was too young i think to appreciate the humour.
I'm a big fan of the likes of Tim Vine and Stuart Francis (the Canadian not the crush a grape Boltonian) as i love those one line puns. Also thought Ben Elton when he was in his prime back in the 80's was very funny and had one of his shows on tape that i used to listen to a lot.

Jimeowen makes me laugh, though he's not a big hitter, and seems to do better in Oz these days.
However, the Leamington Spa born Irishman, gets into my top 50.

Saw Max Wall in Krapp's Last Tape. He signed his autobiography for me at the stage door.

Fine actor.

Toss up between Charlie Chaplin and Stan Laurel if I had to pick one. Innovators.

Like Boncey I'm also a big Stewart Lee fan. I also love Paul Chowdhury.

I don't think Frankie Howard knew any jokes but he always made me laugh.
