    Keith Lemon I find mildly amusing, Lenny Henry okay on occasions, not that I'd want to be his wife, no idea what you mean by the other, can you please elaborate.

    Thanking you
    yours Blodwin

    That one from Mrs Brown's boys or whatever it's called.
    I just find that character the most unfunniest person ever.
    I just don't get it.
    I was never into the whole "Gavin & Stacey" thing either.
    Keith Lemon for me too. He just grates on my nerves.
    Maybe I'm just a miserable moo.
    Smile... It'll confuse em.

    I've no idea why people think that Keith Lemon is funny either. I'm not really fussed about many comedians.

    Russel Brand. Being a gobby know it all, shouting others down.
    Jo Brand. "I'm like a fat lesbian" yes dear, you've been banging on that unfunny 'joke' for years!

    Must be something with the name.

    Lee Evans- there’s only one famous Lee Evans I like and that’s the bloke from Steps
    Michael McIntyre- while I admire his stance on debt collection agencies, he ain’t funny!
    Sarah Millican- she might be a Sand Dancer- so apologies for slating a fellow North Easterner- but she irritates the living daylights out of me!!
    I don’t actually mind Keith Lemon. Possibly because I absolutely loved Leigh Francis as Avid Merrion in Bo Selecta so I can tolerate his humour.
    My very favourite comedians though I can count on the fingers of one hand- I’m very fussy when it comes to comedy.

    I've restricted this to British comedians, if I included Americans I'd be here all week:

    Keith Lemon (again)
    Harry Hill
    Michael McIntyre
    Russell Brand
    Andy Parsons
    Ricky Gervais
    Miranda Hart
    Jack Whitehall

    And some oldies (or in some cases deadies) I've never found remotely funny:
    Ken Dodd
    Bruce Forsytth
    Cannon and Ball
    Freddie Starr
    Joe Pasquale
    Benny Hill

    The problem with Mrs Brown's Boys is that it's got far to big for itself.
    We saw the first 3 plays years ago at the Palace in Manchester and it was fantastic.
    It was ruined when the BBC snapped it up. In the theatre, there was none of the 'over hype' and over the top stuff that you see on the telly. It was just a normal comedy play, with no airs & graces about it.
    It was popular in Ireland, and we did get one of the videos they brought out, and it was basically a comedy drama. Completely different to what you see now.

    Anyway, my personal 'unfunny' list includes McIntrye, Ricky Gervais (although I do admire his animal cruelty stance) Keef Lemon, Stewart Lee (who I saw in the West end a few years back, and is extremely boring).
    There are lots of others, but they are the main ones.

    Yes, but that's a what rather than a who, 'comedy programmes you find unfunny' would be a different thread, yes Mrs Brown's boys would be right at the top of my list too
