So, to mark the launch of our new Comedy Section here at Digital Spy, we thought we'd find out your favourite stand-up.
Will it be Ricky Gervais? He's already won a few prizes in the past, as he may have mentioned once or twice. Or do you prefer Stewart Lee? Given his outspoken criticism of the Foster's Comedy God prize last year, he may well not thank you for voting for him, though!
If you think our shortlist is a bit limited, you'd be right! We couldn't even include all of our own favourites - there's no room for the wonderful Simon Amstell, Dylan Moran or Simon Munnery to name but three.
So, there's also the handy 'Other' option so you can put us right. Vote in our poll and then let us know your thoughts about British stand-up in the space below.
This poll is now closed - read the results here
