Lee said: 'I have arrived at my own definitive list of the best ten stand-ups of all time, based on my insider knowledge and a secret ballot of myself conducted by me. Over half the acts finally selected weren't even in the stupid Channel 4 shortlist. Some of the acts in the season are so brilliant their genius has prevented them from becoming household names. Oneis so famous he or she cannot even be named, like some kind of Old Testament deity, or government assassin.'
