I've seen Lee Evans live twice and he's hilarious. He can wear you out a bit, but he's very funny.

Ricky gervais stand up was good too.

First off, Ronnie Barker? really?
Rickey Gervais is amazing, hilarious!

Whatsit is right, you shouldn't have a poll. And your comments on Gervais is what you are basically what you are criticising others for. We can be right if we only agree with you right?

All these guys are the newbies and what i refer to as Indies!
Ricky Gervais is pure awful at stand up BUT put him on a show and he's funny as.
This is a british pole and nobodys involved the most British of the brits! Al Murray! Also Bernard Mannin is a legend, Peter Kay, The TWO Ronnies to name just a few!!!

Just remember the oldies are the best and that is a fact! which is why the indies use their material!

The Best British Comedian thread

This would imply that if someone finds them funny they should be in the poll. You may not like Gervais, but he's not really famous for his stand - up. He's more of a situational comedian. Shows like Extras (first season), The Office (So big the american's had to do a version), Ricky Gervais Show and the brief bits of him on Idiot Abroad are insanely funny (It isn't just Karl Pilkington. The stuff Gervais comes out with to antagonize Karl are gold.)

Lenny Henry is not funny.

Sean Lock!
Al Murray
Peter Kay
Catherine Tate
Matt Lucas
John Cleese
Rowan Atkinson
Billy Connolly
Johnny Vegas
Jason Manford
Ross Noble
Charlie Brooker (His dry sense of humour is absolutely pants wettingly good)
david walliams
Jimmy Carr
Alan Carr

I dislike Mcintyre and lee evans because i feel they are very overrated. All people go on about when it comes to comedy in the UK is these two. Just because i don't feel that they are THAT funny, doesn't mean i would leave them out of a list of Best British Comedians. Peter Kay is similar; very overhyped and was kind of repetitive with his jokes (many live shows kinda sound the same).

If you are going to do a proper poll you should really be objectional. It says "The Best British Comedian thread" not "The Best British Comedian thread poll based on Eboy's choices"
