At the moment I'd put Chris Morris at the top of my list, but he almost transcends comdy altogether.

Still think Lenny Bruce is the greatest stand up comedian ever, but, like Chris Morris, his brilliance almost transcends comedy altogether at times. Richard Pryor is way up there too, but for me it'll always be Lenny Bruce.




 

Gets my vote as one of the greatest Americans of the Twentieth Century.

He's one of those who's a bit too scary to be popular, ever. That idea of transgression in comedy, where it goes beyond 'joke > punchline > audience'. I know you're not overly fond of Hicks (and I'm not either) but him and Jerry Sadowicz [sp?] are very good at comedy that's so vitriolic it stops being funny and becomes quite tragic (which is an avenue of comedy rarely explored in stand-up).

Anyway, I remember seeing the Divine David when I was on the other side of puberty very late at night on channel 4 and being absolutely petrified. Amazing.

Did we mention John Cooper Clark? Was a welcome relief to see him at ATP last year, broke up all the turgid guitar bands nicely.

Seriously, his is like an interesting lecture at times.

I have decided Stewart Lee and Chris Morris are seriously the best comedians ever. The global economy episode of Stewart Lee's 'Comedy Vehicles' has no equals in comedy at the moment. I can't really prove this, but he just is on a completely different level to hint that's true. Everyone should be allowed to watch it, not just UK viewers.

And The Jesus And Mary Chain

Im delighted about Stewart Lee's series, using the idea of a stand up comedian getting their own TV series as material for a stand up comedian whos got their own TV series has been tremendous.

Shame the sketches are shit though. While I get that's deliberate, they're still a waste of 1/3rd of the running time.

they are shit, but i don't get that as being deliberate, why do you say they are?

i'm glad that there's someone on tv making mockery of the likes of clarkson and his audience.
