Without doubt it has to be Iain Duncan-Smith. Peter Cook is a very close second, IMO.

Timing wise it would have to be Eric and Ernie though as a stand up I reckon Billy Connolly's as good as most

It has to be Billy Connelly.

He has me weeping every time I see him - even when I know what the punchline is going to be!
