Fave Comedians

Stand-Up or Otherwise!

Until recently i didn't really care much for comedians, but having recently gone through a depression i have been searching for things to make me laugh and truly, laughter and comedy is life saving stuff!! Just like music or any other form of self expression! <3

Who are your faves? Comedians or comedic actors (:.

Since having left England to move to Holland when i was 11, i didn't grow up with the great English comedians and all i knew was Mr Bean and Monty Python, but i feel that a lot of the world's greatest comedians come from Britain (: (in my opinion most Dutch comedian's try too hard.. i guess they all do but it just doesn't feel as natural to me as it does with most British comedians (: i do like Guido Weijers). I still don't know a lot of comedians but i lovelovelove:

1) - Eddie Izzard (ultimate fave)
2) - Lee Evans (ultimate second)

And then really anyone in random order:
Billy Connolley, Bill Bailey, John Cleese, Robin Williams (Stand-Up, not film), Peter Kay, Sean Lock, Jim Jeffries, Rick Mayal & Ade Edmondson, Bill Hicks.. (:

Who do you recommend?

I absolutely adore john cleese (Love fawlty towers). I also really like Ross Noble and Jimoen. I love comedians and comedy tv shows, particularly british and Irish ones. Have you seen the show Black Books? It has Dylan Moran and Bill Bailey in it.

I love Tim Minchin, Bill Bailey, Dylan Moran, Steven Wright, Rowan Atkinson and Eddie Izzard. My favourite funny actors are Robert Downey Jr (esp in Kiss Kiss Bang Bang) and I also like Michael Douglas when he's playing funny roles - Wonder Boys has me crying with laughter every time.
