    If you have a problem with black people using the n word then you should probably read up on your black history.

    I will try one last time. Using words exactly as Darren Lewis said "if a white comic had done that act exactly as reg did then the would be murder which isn't right". The words from Darren Lewis black writer for the Mirror not me even tho I agree with him.

    The day I respect the opinion of Darren Lewis is the day I buy a frilly dress and start going by the name of Mavis. The 'if a white person had said it' argument is about as weak as it gets.

    I prefer the 'safer' comedians because it takes far more talent to get a laugh without having to resort to shock tactics. Having said that, Bill Hicks is one of the greatest of all time.

    McIntyre, Bishop, Reg D Hunter, Bill Bailey, Chris Rock, Al Murray, with honorable mentions to 'one liner' comedians like Milton Jones, Stewart Francis and Tim Vine.
    What 'shock tactics' does Stewart Lee use? If anything, he mocks that sort of comedian (see his attack on Frankie Boyle).

    Chris Rock's whole act is pretty much race related zzzzzz

    Michael McIntyre is easily one of the worst around, along with the likes of Russell Howard and others.

    I rather think that Darren Lewis has missed the point then. Reg D H uses the word in his act as a means of 'reclaiming' the word for black culture. In the 1800s the word was used extensively without any racial slur being meant at all. Since the 1900s the word has been used exclusively as a pejorative term. Reg D Hunter's aim, , by using the word frequently in his act, is to remove the impact of the word so that it cannot be used as a racial slur.

    Whether Reg D will be successful with that is another matter!

    For what its worth, in the way that all music started with Elvis, all comedy started with Spike Milligan.
    But I also admire(d) Mike Reid (his jokes were rubbish, but his delivery was amazing; even his worst jokes would make you laugh), Sean Lock, Jimmy Carr, Hugh Dennis, Al Murray, Jack Dee, and Frankie Boyle. I like Jon Richardson when he's on gameshows as well, though Ive never really seen him do stand up.

    At the moment one of the funniest comedians I have seen is Kevin Bridges! He was brilliant. Micky Flanagan and Lee Mack are excellent as well.

    Eddie Murphy's Raw and Delirious are two of the funniest standup comedy movies ever. Forget his films yes he's rubbish but he was great at stand up.

    Delirious is amazing, one of my favourite stand up shows ever. Raw is still really good, but not as good as Delirious.

    I can not believe Richard Pryor has not been mentioned more, he was a bleeding legend, and Dave chappelle is also a funny guy. Billy Connolly. It just brings a smile to the face recalling some of them moments!

    Bill Hicks
    Robin Williams
    Dara O'Briain
    Eddie Izzard

    In that order, at least until I remember someone else...

    (can't believe Dara and Williams hadn't been mentioned at all.)

    David Moyes has promised fans of Manchester United that they will be in a major European competition next year... even if he has to write the song himself.

    I saw a Manchester United fan trying to throw himself off the top floor of a high rise block of flats today. But by the time I had got there to help him he had slipped to ninth.

    Kevin Bridges is very good at the moment.

    Bill Hicks was brilliant and not just as a comedian.

    I mean, this is funny in a, you've got to laugh or you will cry, type of way, but it's more than just a comedy routine.

    Warning strong language.

    Aye lets be honest here, most of the race related humour which is now well tired and dated, and a lot of Eddie Murphys stuff, as good as it is, is all just taking off Richard Pryor in my opinion.

    Sarah Silverman is probably the only one who has made me laugh even once, but even she makes me cringe quite a bit. Most women are awful. Sarah Millican is the worst, then that one who constantly bangs on about her Nigerian family and steals Eddie Murphy jokes.

    Some that I haven't actually seen in years but I would say were my favourites are Peter Kay, Chris Rock, Eddie Murphy and Billy Connolly.



    The more current comedians I don't think are on par with those guys, like someone already said of Sean Lock. When he is on 8 Out of 10 Cats he is hilarious, especially the Countdown ones. But I went to watch him do stand up and he wasn't as good.

    I may be showing my age a bit hear but my favs have been Bob Monkhouse -forget the game shows his stand up was so slick. Bob Newhart his telephone conversations act is great to listen to. Billy Connolly when he came on the scene in the 70's the last supper gag is still so funny . Ok a bit controversial but very very funny.

    I remember watching the silverman show after hearing it was good, but still no laugh, a bit of a smile maybe !

    My favourite is Gervais, in particular when he is with Steve and Karl, Their Radio show when digital radio came out was funny as ****, never laughed so much.
    My least favourite, not a woman, has to be Tim Vine, not sure what it is but every time i see him i just feel really embarrassed for him, he is really good if that is what he is trying to do lol.
