    Fern Brady is a Scottish comedian who I've found hilarious in anything I've seen on YouTube.

    Panel shows have destroyed stand up comedy anyway. There are plenty of comedians who seem funny for five minutes on such a platform, then are absolutely atrocious at stand-up.
    In fairness, stand-up is incredibly difficult, but I feel there used to be more stand-ups I liked before everything was a panel show.

    Janey Godley wasn’t funny on HIGNFY. Rees-Mogg was funnier!

    The only possible way Jacob Rees-Mogg could be funnier than anyone was if he was being bathed in acid on live telly.

    Humour is incredibly subjective. My girlfriend and I have a broadly similar sense of humour, but she finds a lot of comedians funny that I don't and vice-verse. A lot of those that she likes tend to be female.
    I think a shared sense of perspective is important with comedy, a woman is more likely to find that in a woman than a man. That is also why a lot of comedy doesn't travel too well. People I know who are more into American culture(bands, tv shows etc.) get American stand-ups a lot more than I do, as a lot of American humour, with some notable exceptions, leaves me cold.

    I do think that men are much more competitive about humour though. Most men try to be funny and use it to validate themselves in their social groups, something women don't. In fact, I would say it is the opposite, which is why a lot of female comics concentrate on shared experience, because that is how their conversations traditionally work.

    I recently watched an episode of 8 out of 10 cats (totally * programme that's been on for ever) because Doug Stanhope was on it. Total con, Stanhope says about 2 sentences in the whole show. Even if someone you like is on these programmes they barely utter a word. Don't even know anyone who watches them.

    Another aspect, and it is partially a result of such shows, is people have comedians they like but don't find funny. Doug Stanhope is a good example of the opposite! I would imagine five minutes with him and you would be up for murder, but the * is funny. He is one of the few Americans I find hilarious. In contrast, Josh Widdicombe is probably a lovely lad, the type you would be happy for your sister to be seeing, but he isn't a stand-up comedian. These panel shows have seen the rise of the sit-down comedian.

    She's brilliant. I saw her supporting Frankie Boyle.
