Jimmy Carr and Ricky Gervais are two of my favorite comedians. I sit back and watch at least one of each of their standup specials every week, if not every few days. I'm also a big fan of Mock the Week. British comedy as a whole is extremely different than American comedy. Maybe it's just the guys that are popular enough to be known over here as well, but their style just doesn't hit that PC wall that Americans naturally run into.
I also enjoy Ricky Gervais. Never seen Mock the Week, but I'll have to check it out.
