My favourites apart from the Three Stooges were Abbott and Costello.

I have to say that my list of great comedians would be far too long but I can say one comedian who I simply do NOT like, is Ben Elton. My ex who still lives in England, forced me to endure an entire DVD of his and I sat stonefaced through the entire thing even though it was making her laugh, hysterically at times. And it wasn't that I didn't understand British humor, either. I knew nearly all of the people, places, and events that he would describe in most of his jokes and I still didn't find him to be at all funny. I have a brother who thinks The Young Ones is one of the funniest shows he has ever seen but when I tried to show him some of Rik and Ade's later work, he didn't like any of it. Same thing, I guess.
I thought we'd nick a wreath off one of the graves as we went in.
