    Although i couldn't put them in order, among my favourites are;

    Sean Lock
    Bill Hicks
    Bill Bailey
    George Carlin
    Bremner, Bird and Fortune
    Billy Connelly
    Michael McIntyre

    There are definitely a few others i could watch and while Bremner, Bird and Fortune aren't a stand up act i included them because they are hilarious political satirists, i love satire. I could almost add South Park creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker for the same reason. A lot of people can watch South Park for the black comedy (which i like as well) or the toilet humour which don't particularly like and completely miss the utter brilliance of the political and social satire which is not only hilarious but sometimes genius.

    I had to include the late Bill Hicks and George Carlin, great American social commentators and i like them and their style of comedy so much because i really think it's one of the last forms of total freedom of speech.

    Oh yea, he's quite the European comedian isn't he, he likes to be able to speak different languages and do his act in different parts of the world, i have nothing but respect for that.

    For me he isn't a favourite but i'd definitely watch him if i saw one of his gigs advertised on TV.

    A few people here saying George Carlin as well, maybe we should link some people up in the hate thread over there (OP not to blame) and give them some perspective on how things really are.
