Top Ten Best Well Known British Comedians

This list starts of in my opinion. Please don't leave any bad comments.

The Top Ten

1 Lee Evans Lee Evans

Yes I know, a lot of you would disagree and say that Russell Howard is better. Russell Howard is very funny but lee Evans though... Absolutely funny.

Best shows he's done is xl, big, roadrunner and different planet.

He's been in good films such as mouse hunt and freeze frame, freeze frame is kinda strange and mind numbing. Lee evans is my favourite.

2 Russell Howard Russell Howard Russell Joseph Howard is an English comedian, television and radio presenter and actor, best known for his TV show Russell Howard's Good News and his appearances on the topical panel TV show Mock the Week.

Russell is definitely one of the best comedians around. He should be number one for sure!

Absolute comedy genius. I miss the old mock the week seasons with him in it.

Good news is absolutely funny.
Love it.

3 Jimmy Carr Jimmy Carr James Anthony Patrick "Jimmy" Carr is an English stand-up comedian, television host and actor, known for his signature laugh, deadpan delivery, dark humour, and use of edgy one-liners.

8 out of 10 cats is hilarious.

Jimmy is so funny, I love his laugh.

4 Michael McIntyre Michael McIntyre Michael Hazen James McIntyre is an English comedian, actor and presenter. In 2012, he was reported to be the highest-grossing comedian in the world.

Would love tickets to see Mike live. Me and my fiance of 20 years have watched him on the our own big screen and have both been in tears. When we have have the funds. Mike is our guy to see most local to us. He is amazing. A childish word to use I know, but without taking a casserole round. How else can I show our gratitude x

He is one of the funniest men ever to walk the Earth. I honestly can't pick a #1, but MM certainly deserves a spot. - PositronWildhawk

Comedy king, Michael McIntyre has to be on this list.

He is the best to me

5 Peter Kay Peter Kay Peter John Kay is an English comedian and actor. His 2010-11 stand-up comedy tour was officially inaugurated into the Guinness World Records as the most successful of all time, playing to over 1.2 million people. V 2 Comments
6 Lee Mack Lee Mack Lee Gordon McKillop, known as Lee Mack, is an English stand-up comedian and actor best known for writing the sitcom Not Going Out and starring in it as the main character, also called Lee.

Lee Mack is amazing, especially in not going out.
So funny ha ha ha.

His voice kinda sounds like Karl pilkington from an idiot abroad.

7 Frankie Boyle Frankie Boyle Francis Martin Patrick "Frankie" Boyle is a Scottish comedian and writer, well known for his pessimistic and often controversial sense of humour.

Best comedian, better than Carr, McIntyre and Evans combined especially his joke, "you remember years ago, when they were making Braveheart, everyone was like, 'oh, this is ridiculous, Mel Gibson, playing a Scottish guy, that's not going to be convincing,' and look at him now, an alcoholic racist.

Comedy master. One of my favourite jokes is "Susan Boyle to me looks like Gordon brown playing mrs doubtfire."

The queen joke is his best or the queer eye joke but the best comedian better than lee evans

8 Keith Lemon
