In these dark days, we can do with some cheer. Who is your favourite comedian of all time? Mine is, without doubt, the great Billy Connolly.

Connolly is great but not so much recently. For me Russell Howard. Not only the good news series but his gigs as well. Is there a funnier bloke?

I don't have one favourite. When you have a favourite comedian next year they will let u down. Some of my faves are: Robin Williams, Weapons of Mass destruction, Peter Kay, the tour that didn't tour and Jimmy Carr, Being Funny.

Peter Kay has a very good rapport with his audience but he keeps wheeling out the same shit over& over again, observations that really anyone in your pub can come up with on a good night. He's slightly overrated in my opinion. I think John Cleese and Billy Connelly are better talents.

The Oracle

A guy or girl standing up in front of a crowd doesn't really do it with me. Slightly too engineered and humour should not be like that. Life; now that's a source of laughter. But if I had to choose maybe an old timer like Tommy Cooper. He beat his wife and was a cheat but he had something. He also dressed up the jokes in the magic act and that makes it more bearable.

Joan Rivers, the Queen of Comedy is no more. Some will not mourn tonight. I loved the 1st Lady of Nasty. She was one of a kind!! RIP Joan Rivers. To me she was the greatest.

Lee Evans is retiring? Noo his wife will kick him out as he predicts; i think he owes the missus. He'll be back. Greatest physical comedian of the last 50 years.

Billy Connolly obviously. It says of all time. I saw him live and my chest hurt for three days I laughed so much.

My all time favorite comic is probably the great Phyllis Diller. She paved the way for so many women in the entertainment industry.
