Yup, it helps that my dad listened to it religiously when I was growing up.

Both Morgan and O'Hanlon are great in Father Ted, and Kahn is pretty damn good in Blazing Saddles.

It's a great show. It misses Humph though.

I like Jack Dee, but I'm not sure he's the best host. Someone suggested Jarvis Cocker back when Humph passed, and I think he would have been brilliant.

Atkinson in Blackadder is probably my favourite TV comedy performance
Oswalt is brilliant, and hopefully will do well in the HoF

I can see Sons of the Desert resurrecting an old forum dispute [:D]. I liked it well enough, but didn't consider it the classic others do.
Grammer is great, but I hope David Hyde Pierce winds up in the top 10.
Lemmon = awesome

Ideally Fritzl'd just tally the votes he has and move on, but I'm not sure if that's entirely fair to everyone else.
