I doubt it’ll be long before James Corden comes up.

Tom Allen is the one from me. He’s on everything and he’s absolutely not funny. His jokes are pathetic. People must be desperate to laugh just because he’s gay and they’re ok with that

Jo Brand is also unfunny now

I say now because for a while I did find her funny when I was younger but then you realise every joke is the same. Even her "witty" responses are about her being fat and hating her husband

Jo Brand
Jim Carrey (though I rate him as an actor actually)
Robin Williams (see comment above about Carrey)
Jerry Seinfeld
Kevin Hart
Noam Macdonald (though he has his moments)

I am sure the list above is some sort of blasphemy.

Michael McIntyre. Absolute cock womble who has a massively punchable face. I could repeatedly hit it for 12 hours, then I'd probably still do overtime aswell to keep on doing it.

Also a feminist who just so happens to hate young pretty females.

Ed Gamble is proper basic. Absolutely zero depth or complexity to his humour, he just seems to say always say the obvious joke that other comedians wouldn’t deem worth saying.

This one absolutely baffles me. The man has made tens of millions from having stupid floppy hair.

Rosie Jones is unwatchable. I can only imagine it’s insulting to people with disabilities as it’s the most blatant case of positive discrimination I’ve ever seen. She’s painfully unfunny.

Kevin Hart is the worst that I've seen in my lifetime.

Generally I don't like those loud shouting comedians in the mould of Desiree Burch.

Tom Allen is one I agreed with, until I heard him just being himself on podcasts. When he's not doing skits, he's actually a funny guy.

Good shout. Watched an episode of QI yesterday and it was so hard to watch. She had one good joke though, but the rest were below par — and it really annoyed me that she constantly interrupted others with them. Weirdly enough, she often seems to forage into sensible subjects (not only disability-related) without any consideration of what she's going to say, which is why she often sounds like she came from 00's. Maybe she's a good writer (most likely — her resume is quite impressive), but as a stand up comedian she's not good enough.

Two that come to mind are Micky Flanagan and Jason Manford. Can't stand 'em and they are not funny at all.

Also, Lucy Beaumont, wife of Jon Richardson. Saw one of her stand ups and it was very cringeworthy.

This prick.

I didn't type his name because most people who aren't from Ireland will be fortunate enough never to have heard of him.

If you do come across him, steer clear. He somehow has both less talent and more self confidence than James Corden.

Everytime I see her I just find her unfunny all the time. But you're right, I looked at her list of writing credits and she seems quite accomplished/has made a good career from it. Just don't think she is a good stand up

Bo Burnham was funny, went through some serious depression and anxiety, now tries to joke about depression and anxiety and it is really unfunny.

I have no idea either, yet.

This is the winner, and perfectly described.

Sarah Millican. Saw her live a few years ago, easily the worst I’ve been to (and I’ve been to quite a few comedians, with tickets for quite a few coming up in the next year).

She has a few moments, but you usually have to wade through a lot of unfunny for it.

Sara Pascoe. I genuinely think Frankie Boyle is one of the best, smartest comedians to come out of the UK, and yet for some reason he decided to bring her along for the ride on his panel show. It just made the whole thing unwatchable.

Also Richard Herring I find a bit cringey. I like RHLSTP though purely for the guests he gets, but whenever he interjects it’s usually with something unfunny.

You're bang out of order with the bolded part. Have you no shame? You owe this poor guy (whoever he is) a proper apology.

Nonchalantly scoring the winner...
I don’t get Seinfeld, at all.

I try. Every time someone posts a clip of Seinfeld I’ll watch it and smile along instinctively with the canned laughter like I’ve been conditioned to do… but after a few minutes I have an empty feeling where I realise what I’m doing and how pathetic it is.

I was raised on stuff like The Day Today, Partridge, Julia Davis etc and I generally have a more dry / dark sense of humour than most people I know. Maybe this factors in somehow.

Is Curb Your Enthusiasm similar to Seinfeld? I’ve always been put off trying it because people who like Seinfeld recommend it to me.

No idea what you're talking about here mate. Steve McManaman is hilarious.

My son has attempted Seinfeld. It was alright in the 90s, but it is very dated.

It is. Situational. Cringey to the max. Stupid people making bad situations worse etc. The supporting casts are brilliant. Seinfeld and Curb are much much better than his own stand up.

Trevor Noah. Don't get me wrong, he does have good watchable content at times, but he doesn't make people laugh.

Andy Parsons. Joe Rogan. Most of Joe Rogan's comedian friends.

People mentioned Jo Brand already but I don't think she's unfunny so much as one-note.
