TOTP - Top Ten UK Modern Comedians

Tom from Bolton has been thinking long and hard about the current top ten comedians in the UK, something tells us he is going to be bias towards a couple of the guys on this list:-

  • 10 - Dave Spikey
  • 9 - Craig Cash
  • 8 - Paul Merton
  • 7 - Matt Lucas and David Walliams
  • 6 - Ali G
  • 5 - Jonny Vegas
  • 4 - Omid Djalili
  • 3 - Jack Dee
  • 2 - Ricky Gervais
  • 1 - Peter Kay

We have been asked to do The Lance Anderson Podcast Experiment, more details are at

Yea... Richard IS a good name. Matter of fact, that IS my name. Now about it coming from the bowels of someone’s mind, I don’t know about that!

As for the rest of the list, I did not associate with any of the comedians, must be an American thing...

Thanks For Reading My List Out Rob n Jon. I can listen to it all weekend now :-).

Hey Tom.

It was a good list. We so knew who was going to be number one before we even opened it.

By the way - nice truck. One of these days i am going to do a HGVlicense just for the hell of it. I wanna be the Rubber Duck, y'know?

Arizona, noon on the seventh of june....convoy!!!

Almost Daily Top Ten Lists

Bazza said...

Good list, but I can't believe Ali G was further up than Dave Spikey. I think Lee Evans should have got in there.

Jon, have you got Convoy on dvd? I have. :)

TomTheTrucker said...

lol thanks Jon :-) , dont want to "steal your thunder" or anything but its much harder to get a HGV class 1 license nowdays, as you must first pass for a class 2 and class 3 before you even start to take your class 1 lesson :-(.
Thanks Anyway Rob n Jon, ill try to think up another list for you. Dont have as many ideas for one as Rowley.

I'd heard of Mr. Gervais from "The Office" and Ali G.
Ali G. had a show on HBO here in the U.S. I don't know if it was the same show he did in the U.K. or not.
I saw the first few episodes of the BBC "The Office". The corporate/business stuff was a bit too realistic to be funny for me. It just reminded me of when people had said or done things like that in real life and made me want to scream. But I laughed myself silly when that one guy put the other guy's stapler inside a jello mold.

Before I even realised that the listmaker was from Bolton, the #1 was obvious from "Top UK Modern Comedians".

Can't believe Jimmy "Put me in as many TV shows as possible" Carr was in there. The guy simply isn't funny.

Have you heard that they're remaking Jim'll fix it starring Jimmy "Overexposure" Carr? It's as if they couldn't find anyone else famous called Jim. I always liked the Russ Abbott spoof using CU Jimmy.

All of Rock Profiles ARE available on a fantastically priced DVD (£7.99). Find here.

I think it's only a best of on the Little Britain DVD.

If you can read this, word verification works for me. Hurrah
