Who makes you laugh?

Seeing as some people are great at writing comedy but shit at stand-up (Ricky Gervais) and some are great as TV hosts but shit at stand-up (Bill Maher, Jonathan Ross), try and explain why.

Standups

Bill Hicks - The archetype of beauty and ugliness fused
Sean Lock - "The middle-class bloke on the building site" as he calls himself
Chris Rock - I dont know what its like being a black american, but hes way better than Obama.
Jerry Sadowitz - A Scottish Charles Manson with better card tricks than David Blaine and venom coming from both nostrils.

Writing

Ricky Gervais - The office is so good that when they made an American version it was still funny.
Stewart Lee - Who wrote Jerry Springer the opera, but mostly for Lee and Herring on British TV in the 1990s on which he was the principle.
Armando Iannuci/Chris Morris - Brass Eye, The Day Today. Everyone says how Chris Morris is a genius (rightly) but overlooks the subversively charming nature of Armando Iannuci. Check his "Time Trumpet" on youtube
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U12aygMK1lc
Bill Maher - a great host who can be mad at Iraq and the Republicans yet make everybody laugh.

Mitch's surreal rambling. He's dead now. So it won't be hard to track down all his stuff.

Ive seen George Carlin on some TV shows, and i like him personally but dont find him particularly funny, and Richard Pryor is obviously an extraorinary figure but his actual standup doesnt do much for me - but that bit in the film where he's blind and goes "Im not black!!" was fantastic.
