I was going to mention Peter Sellers , maybe one of Britain's greatest comedians , maybe his goon stuff was more stand up , not sure what or if he did live stuff .The funny thing is he didn't think he was funny and had crisis' in confidence about it , but some of his films are hilarious imo . Rowan Atkinson did good live stuff, John Cleese funny but outside of Monty Python again not sure about live performances . I did see Jack Dee once with Mark Lamar as support act . I barely remember either😂, saw Billy Connolly live and that was beyond hilarious , funny to a entirely different level , if it was football he would be champions League funny .
Think Rowan Atkinson could be counted as he has done stand up shows.

Used to like Jack Dee but not so much anymore.

Billy is a legend and if he isn't in the final few at least then something has gone.wrong.

How about Les Dawson? Don’t know if anyone has mentioned him - a very fun man with the deadest pan delivery of all.
Is that a nomination for Les Dawson?

Have given it some thought and I don't think Eric Morecambe or Laurel and Hardy can be included.

They weren't stand up comedians.

Am going to be very strict on this.

Ronnie Barker can't be included.

Having googled Bernie Winters I am not sure he can either (but would listen to people who know more than I as this was before my time).

Was Bruce a stand up? Hmm

Yeah OK think he can be allowed.

Forsyth definitely a stand up as was Bernie Winters, I agree Barker was never a stand up, he was a comic actor always working off a script..

Think I am showing my age here cjay, All those I mentioned did stand up. Check out Bernie Winters and Ronnie Barkers monalogues on you tube. Bruce was a genuine all rounder who did stand up, dance, compare and singing in his time. Jimmy Tarbuck also was major stand up comic of the 60s and 70s.

It's OK Jimang :)

I wasn't born until 1990 so some of the names mentioned I haven't heard of or never really saw.

Ronnie Barker can't be allowed, he was a comic actor who on Parkinson basically said he had to be playing a character as he wasn't confident being himself.

Ronnie Corbett did stand up but Barker didn't by all account.

Will bow to you and Faaip over Bernie Winters, he can go in.

Are you nominating Jimmy Tarbuck?

Yes will nominate, Jimmy. Not sure if John Bishop was on the list, he is one of the best of the modern breed I think. Dick Emery is probably a bit questionable for me, I recall he mostly played comedy characters, but maybe he did stand up too. This is certainly a thread for us all to get our teeth into.

I've added Jimmy Tarbuck.

You can nominate John Bishop if you want you have 1 nomination left because Larry Grayson had already been nominated before you

Less than 24 hours left to nominate if you haven't already done so and haven't already had your 5 allowed nominations.

I hope it ends up on an easy total to divide by :lol:
