    Ross Noble. David Baddiel & Rob Newman (bit old but i think they are both still going).
    I like the Mighty Boosh - mental!
    I'm also a fan of Lenny Henry - anyone remember the show he did on tv where he ran a pirate radio station - i think his name was Delbert Wilkins.

    I'm afraid I am sometimes found tuning in to Radio 4 for comedy - there was a great send up of phone in shows called 'Down the Line', made by the creators of the Fast Show.

    Doug Stanhope is the closest i've come to him, and that is at a push to compare them...

    but he isn't liked in the US very much and is largely unknown and unbooked because he says whatever he thinks, so in that case he is similar

    PS. any viewers will probably wanna skip the Alex Jones bit, he aint a comedian.
