It's time for someone to mention Woody Allen. Not only a great comedian, but also a great film maker.

Zach is definitely my favorite of the Comedians of Comedy.

Of course, I'm disappointed in myself for forgetting one of the greats. Thanks for the reminder.

I'll second Ed Byrne. I'm also VERY glad to see no one on this forum mention Dane Cook.

Don't like:
Simon Pegg, David Walliams, Matt Lucas, Ricky Gervais, Peter Kay, others.
Pretty good list.

I'd add to mine Dara O'Briain after having sen him live. And Jeremy Hardy was very good as well.

Dylan Moran

He was on tv last night and I really enjoyed his stand up.

Yeah Dylan Moran is great. I think his Monster is the best stand-up performance that I've seen, though I wasn't keen on his next one. I like the way that while rambling and philosphising he will drop in random surreal details (which only register a few seconds later).

Good call on Simon Pegg (as someone you don't find funny): I hate that brand of comedy, which just relies on recognition, i.e., haha this bit is like that bit in Star Wars where they fight with lightsabres but they're fighting with baguettes instead, etc.

I hate how this stuff is mostly regional. I know, like, three or four people from the lists from the English, whereas I seem to know all the American comedians.

How come so few comedians from England cross over to the US?
Do many US comedians cross over there?

I really enjoyed that Dylan Moran thing last night as well, i enjoy the creativity of the way he links his main bits (I dunno about the word "jokes") rather than going "So i was walking down the road the other day..." so it all flows into one.

Shameless is not really comedy but it has it all: drama, violence, humour, disfunctional families, alcoholism.

As this threads popped back up
I personally have never been one to like any of those things, but i think your assertion that he's the "lads mag" comedian of choice probably has alot to do with the fact that he's just popular with alot of people.
I reject the "because he's dead" bollocks as well. That business isnt romantic its just sad.
