    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

    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.

  11. you must be really stupid not to mention richard pryor..who opened up the door for a whole heap of black comedians and also white comedians

    yet another poorly designed trf thread just like that shite music artist one...

    richard pryor,eddie murphy and bill cosby
  12. 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? <_<
  13. 1. Most of us aren't black and therefore:

    2. We don't know who the f*** Richard Pryor IS.

    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....

    That's what I was thinking.

    Jethro is a legend, one of the greatest comedians alive
