Can we claim Stewart Francis? As well as being brilliant, he lives here, his parents are English in some way and he's a Sheffield Wednesday fan

Frankie Boyle, Gary Delaney, Stewart Francis, Alan Cochrane, Kevin Bridges are all ones that spring to mind.

Can't stand Michael McIntyre, and as some of you may have noticed during my various postings during the World Cup, and maybe beyond, James Corden

James Corden was fabulous in Gavin and Stacey but became grating and got the 'lovejoy syndrome' - he is/was on everything!! Can't stand Cochrane, he is pretty childish at times.

I Like Stewart Francis, Boyle, Bridges, McIntyre, Milton Jones and Peter Kay (although a few years ago when he didn't start reselling same dvds and before he became Geraldine McQueen)

I can't stand Corden. I thought Gavin & Stacey was quite funny, but he is hideously overexposed.

I'm going to see Jimmy Carr in Southport this weekend, I saw him in Manchester a couple of years ago and he was superb. The downside is the fact that he's charging an extra £5 now, but he's worth the money. I'm also seeing John Bishop later this year, only ever seen his stuff on TV but he is very good.

I saw Peter Kay last year at the MEN, he was pretty good, but £35 for 90-odd minutes plus Rick Astley as support and around an hours wait between acts is an absolute piss take. People pay it though so good luck to him for making a few quid out of it.

How Much is it to go and see a comedian live, out of interest. I've never been. £35 sounds not bad in relative terms compared to rugby or football matches etc!

Never seen a comedian live, either. Although I've seen MCs try cracking jokes and that fails badly.

From an intellectual viewpoint I also like Stephen Fry. There's actually a decent following of QI in the US (through Youtube of course).

Could be my mind playing tricks but I'm sure it was about £25 to see Frankie Boyle at Sheffield City Hall last year. Had sold out moths prior to that though...
