Why not Cjay? Better than a lot of the nominations in my opinion but not in my top 5

No i would say he is a comedy character actor.

I can't find any record of him having done any sort of stand up solo stuff

Thanks to all who nominated.

Amazing response :)

All candidates will have clips accompanying them on polls so hopefully many laughs to be had!!!!

16 rounds of 5 candidates will be the first set of rounds with 1 from each round going through.

Rounds will be decided at random by this website
https://wheeldecide.com/

All rounds will be 2 days long.

Should a round end in a draw a shorter 1 day poll will be used to decide a winner.

Should this round fail to decide a winner then
https://wheeldecide.com/ will be used as a final decider in a best of 3 spin off.

Rounds 1,2 and 3will start tomorrow and the next 3 rounds will commence the day the previous rounds finish and so on in order to not block up the forum.

Blimey a lot of work CJ !

Although I notice Ricky Gervais is in twice, could replace him with his partner in crime Stephen Merchant, who according to wiki has done stand up.

Ah is he ?

Thanks.

I will bend the rules and you nominated Stephen Merchant.

That way I can keep the nice easy number :)

Indeed a lot of work, thats why I only do these type of polls occasionally :)

But they are fun and seem to create activity on the forum so I don't mind

This above is where we stand at the moment with polls 7,8 and 9 still active.

A few nominees were removed and replaced because after investigation I couldn't find a stand up comic background (mainly character based stuff).

Not many, only a few, 1-3 from what I remember, can only remember one name atm.

The polls that went to draws will be done with the tied nominees as 1 day polls when the other rounds are over.

Hopefully won't be many, only 1 so far.

Thanks for all who are taking part.

Make it worthwhile :)

First 4 1v1 rounds start tomorrow.

There are some tough choices.

Be warned :)

Wheel Decider has not been kind.

An American legend of comedy takes on a Lancashire icon with a famous gurn.

And 2 British comedy giants meet as a Scottish legend meets the Pride of Bolton
