Anyway, my top five.
5) Charlie Hunman
Doesn't need much explanation but...from the first moment I discovered this guy in Sons of Anarchy I was in lust. He plays American's most of the time but he's actually English. Sigh. I remember a youtube interview of him saying he chased a burglar away when they tried to rob his house, what more could you want.
4) Bill Hicks
A serious dude. If you don't know his stand-up, go and check it out ASAP. I struggle to be friends w/ people that I can't talk to about this guy. My BF didn't know Bill and I was horrified. He shaped so many of my views and helped me see a lot of different realities. Just from being a comedian. Legend.
3) Bo Burnham
Another great comedian and influence of mine. A perfect mix of bitter and optimistic Bo creates shows that I can watch over and over again. Being on Netflix recently, hopefully we'll see lots more from him.
2) Danny Devito, Rob Mcelhenney, Charlie Day and Glenn Howerton
It's always sunny in Philadelphia is my number one favourite tv show. Charlie Day is a legend in his own right, starring beside Jennifer Aniston in Horrible Bosses, he's been in various films since starting Sunny. Classic All American "Feel Good" comedy. Love it.
Also I wanted to mention this amazing video on bipolar by Adam Deacon click here. Really inspiring. Brendan Urie is pretty cool too. Special mention to Richard Herring and George Carlin.
