The 50 wittiest people of all time

Can it really be that 90 percent of the 50 wittiest people of all time are Brits currently on the scene? Probably not but Britain's Dave channel had fun making up a list - lists are fun as we know on this blog.

Anyway JAM has done very well - JAMsters on the list are Paul Merton, Stephen Fry, Marcus Brigstocke, Greg Proops, Dara O'Briain, Jack Dee, Bill Bailey, Jo Brand, Phill Jupitus, Ian Hislop and David Mitchell.

And who should be winner and first runner-up. Coming in second is the increasngly essential Stephen Fry - is there any subject on which this man is not an expert?

And number one? JAM fans will have no trouble guessing. Paul's 20 years of quips at the expense of Nicholas have earned him a well deserved reputation. Yes he is the wittiest man of all time!

(according to this list)
