We asked beardy stand-up Tiernan Douieb – one of the friendliest acts on the circuit – for his ten favourite comedians, and here’s what he came back with. ‘Ten is really not enough,’ he says, of his choices, ‘And I’ve spent several hours just deleting and re-adding people. This bunch of funnies are all people I just enjoy watching onstage over and over again. Craig Campbell has been added and deleted from this list four times, so deserves an honourable mention somewhere.’
What do you think of Tiernan's choices? Let us know in the comments box below.

Backyard Comedy Club
One of London's much-needed, dedicated comedy clubs, run by British stand-up Lee Hurst, star of 'They Think it's All Over', who you can occasionally find performing here. At just a stone's throw from Bethnal Green, the Backyard is a good place to find up-and-coming comedians, plus since 2013, they've also hosted variety shows, cabaret, swing dancing and more. There's also a bar, pizzas, pool, fussball and darts.
