concertina ceol Who is the Funniest Folk Act in the UK? (101* d) RE: Who is the Funniest Folk Act in the UK? 27 Apr 07

I saw Stanley Accrington & Keith Donnerly at Whitby Folk Week a couple of years ago and they were hilarious. I like Les Barker very much and he is extremely funny but he is not a "folk act" (or is he?). I would have classed him as a "performance poet".

I used to like Sid Kipper (and the Kipper Family) but I think he has gone off the boil slightly in the last couple of years.

As someone else said Chris Sherburn is extremely funny and an amazing concertina player. So two reasons to see Last Night's Fun :-)
