Right Guys, time for the next one

The basics behind this is. you can nominate upto 3 Comedians, who you feel have been influential...

After we have a good selection I shall then randomise them into a knock out form, then post up a Poll for each and we can get the TRF's most influential Comedians of All Time

I shall also try to keep a list on this post, but if i miss yours let me know... we shall have a min of 32 suggestions for this one

The Contenders:

1.Jim Carrey
2. Billy Connolly
3. Eddie Murphy
4. Charlie Chaplin
5. Lee Evans
6. Dave Chappelle / Chappelle's show
7. Chris Rock
8. Jack Dee
9. Jerry Seinfeld
10. Peter Kay
11. George Carlin
12. The Marx Bros.
13. Bill Hicks
14. Bill Bailey
15. Benny Hill
16. Morecambe and Wise
18. Adam Sandler
19. The Two Ronnies
20. Jethro
21. Tommy Cooper

Steptoe and Son shouldn't be in here mate, and neither should Laurel and Hardy.

Rich Hall
Ricky Gervais




Something that hasn't been mentioned anywhere else - can we have members of The Goodies cast in comedians as well as comedy series? Because they've each done other well recognised stuff such as writing.

Nominating musicians/comedians that people watch and like.

What a bunch of thoughtless, insensitive racists we all are.

The fact that The Beatles are probably the most influential band of all time is besides the point obviously. And Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd - what did they ever do? <_<

Richard Pryor should be there, and you'll find I nominated Eddie Murphy very early on...

What about Billy T James then???

We don't know who Richard Pryor is because he is black? The reason we don't really know him is because he is aimed at the American market. I think that most Americans wouldn't know who Jethro is.

I find St H's comment insulting enough to warrant a neg rep.


You don't need to be black to know who Richard Pryor is, in fact you don't need to be black to get rap music or anything associated with mostly black culture. It's a bit of a one-eyed view that....
