There are quite a few but the worst offender for me is Matt Berry,

how anyone can find that funny is beyond me!

I can't stand Jason Manford, Dave Spikey, Jimmy Carr. Jack Whitehall.

I find that Andy Parson can only talk about Politics which really annoys. I used to like Russell Howard but he's just an over active little child.

Russell Brand is up himself.

agree with Matt Berry...........I've only seen him in that Vic and Bob show but he is a bit of a waste of space on that

Keith Lemon..........grindingly unfunny

I sort of agree with Frankie Boyle, he can be funny but its lost its humour in the light of picking on disabled kids to be honest and now I cant see him as funny

I love Matt Berry. He's a comedy actor rather than comedian surely?

Most of them

If we're talking stand up it's something I struggle with as a whole.

Hm, the Iranian lady...her name starts with an S. Not fussed on female comics who's only gag is they're female/of a certain race. It gets very old very quickly.
Out the men Tim Vine. I just...the only thing that's impressive I guess is he can remember them all, but it's not funny IMO.

He had some funny characters at times and did some funny lines during standup but was mostly a miss.

Live in a glee club setting Jo Brand is brilliant when dealing with hecklers. As for Frankie Boyle...couldn't agree more.

Just don't get the surreal stream of consciousness thing, to me he just seems to talk bollocks.

I see him as a very nasty man who tries to use "It was just a joke" as a way of justifying what nasty things he says.

Harry Hill. I can't tell whether he just writes his scripts on the toilet and just tried not be funny.

Oh yes, Shappi Khorsandi

She's Iranian you know, and a woman. That's pretty much her whole act.

That's the lady! If that was a small part of her routine fine, but it's not. It seems to be the base of all of her jokes. It's true female stand ups often aren't seen as funny and she's not helping that lol
