“Jennifer Saunders. I just love her from the old days with Ab Fab. I think she is incredible.”
Terry Michael who runs TDM Stage School, which is based in Port Talbot.
“It wouldn’t be one of the ones today because they are not funny so I would say the Two Ronnies.”
Cyril Jones, 71, a gas engineer of Sketty.
“Lee Evans. since I first saw him when I was 14, he has had me in fits of laughter, and even now when he is world famous, he is very down to earth and always gracious.”
Gareth Wyn Wallace, Neath dad-of-one and e-commerce manager and hardware tester at CEX, Swansea.
“Rhod Gilbert. He tells it as it is, and because he’s Welsh of course!”
Paul John Hinder, a musician from Swansea.
“Lee Evans is my all-time favourite stand-up comedian.
“His live shows are non-stop and the expressions and faces he makes just crack me up. It’s the way he tells them!”
James Grove, 32, a windscreen technician from Swansea.
“Peter Kay, without a doubt. Being a fellow northerner his sense of humour is ingrained in our DNA. Seeing him live a few years ago with my family – who are from a town near his beloved Bolton – meant we were giggling all the way home.”
Ruth Mosalski, South Wales Evening Post court reporter.
“Steve Coogan for giving us my favourite comedy character, North Norfolk Digital’s very own Alan Partridge. Even the footnotes in his autobiography had me laughing out loud. And I’m always tempted to dismantle the trouser press whenever I’m in a hotel room.”
James Arnott, South Wales Evening Post assistant head of production
“My favourite comedian is Billy Connolly, I just think he has pioneered a style of comedy that has opened the doors for a lot of people that have now become the rock stars of today with sell out arena tours.”
Alan Jones, owner of Swansea city centre live music venue The Scene.
“There are many comics on the scene today that make me laugh but my favourite is probably Sean Lock because I find his observations of life hilarious.”
Amanda Rees, communications officer, Coleg Sir Gar.
“Tommy Cooper was my favourite comedian. I only have to see a photo of him and he makes you laugh. If I get a second choice it would be some of the clowns on the council.”
Ioan Richard, Mawr councillor
