The 100 Greatest Stand-Ups was a poll - first carried out in 2007 - which asked the British public to name their greatest stand-up comedians ever. The public placed their votes online by picking from a shortlist containing a selection of comics from Britain and abroad.

The show returned for a revised version in 2010, with an updated list that took into account the new comedy talent that had emerged in the four years since the previous show.
