Missed my chance to see Dave when he was in Winnipeg very recently.  Felt bad but good since the show was sold out.

Poor Dave.  He's a phenominal talent (and my favourite kid.  Used to be Bruce, but I was slowly converted by rewatching his performances) and looked like he was ready to get some real star power and it just never happened.  Then came a lot of life problems.  Now he's doing a lot of stand-up.  Hope to see him get to do something big soon.

Oh, and if you haven't watched the Wrong Guy, WATCH THE WRONG GUY!

Rowan Atkinson


My thoughts:
Love Mr. Bean.  Still need to see Black Adder.   

 
The Wiki:
Rowan Sebastian Atkinson (born 6 January 1955) is an English actor, comedian, and screenwriter. He is most famous for his work on the satirical sketch comedy show Not The Nine O'Clock News, and the sitcoms Blackadder, Mr. Bean and The Thin Blue Line. He has been listed in The Observer as one of the 50 funniest actors in British comedy,[4] and amongst the top 50 comedians ever in a 2005 poll of fellow comedians.[5] He has also had cinematic success with his performances in the Mr. Bean movie adaptations Bean and Mr. Bean's Holiday and in Johnny English and its sequel Johnny English Reborn.

Leslie Nielsen


My thoughts:
Two characters, from Airplane! and Naked Gun, brought him this high on the list.  And I can't agree more with his placement.   

I love Naked Gun, but I find Airplane is stronger since he plays it straight, which makes it much funnier when the laugh lines come out.

And he's got to get them Glengary leads.

One of his greatest performances.  Eff Al Pacino and Alec Baldwin!  Jack Fuckin' Lemmon owned both of them in that film.  You want to see an actor act, watch Lemmon in Glengarry Glen Ross.

Once Leslie Nielsen found out he was funny, he stopped being funny. He's only funny as a straight man, like in Airplane! and Police Squad. Naked Gun? Meh. They really forgot what made Police Squad great when they made that.

That's why I didn't include him. He's only a good comedic actor when he's acting dramatically.

Simon Pegg

My thoughts:
Not quite a legend, but quite possibly a legend in the making.  Really funny guy when he has the right material.  Love Shaun, Hot Fuzz and Spaced.  Some of his other stuff, not so much.

You should watch Big Train on YouTube. Great sketch show that unfortunately has only a handful of episodes.

One of the things that cracks me up the most about Simon Pegg is when he said, via tweet, that he was on hold with the bank, and his daughter walked in the room and he said, "Hello, fart face!" just as the person from the bank picked up. I don't know why that was so hilarious for me, except I call my kids and husband fart face, too, and I can totally see that happening to me.

Also his movies are the shit.

I don't know about that.  The Naked Gun films are faves of mine, with 2 1/2 being my favorite.  Sure, he plays the role more like he is in on the joke than he did on Police Squad, but I still found the movies really funny.

And only the first couple episodes of Police Squad were good.  The rest were crap.  Unfortunately.

I haven't seen them in ages, but I remember the quality took a nose dive beyond the first couple of episodes.  And they were really straining for jokes.

One has a long bit that just doesn't work, but all the episodes make me laugh out loud.

I guess I should revisit them.  Maybe they are better than I remember.  Still love the Naked Gun though.

Jack Lemmon, if you haven't seen them, rent Some Like it Hot and the Apartment immediately. The man's timing and delivery was perfection.
