|306||Marek Larwood||For his portrayal of Bear in I Want My Hat Back, which is genuinely one of the best things I’ve ever seen. He was also – and I wanted to make this the thing he was best known for – he was in some kind of schools programme audio thing with me in 2004. I did talk to him about it beforehand because I couldn’t remember what it was called; and nor can he. And he had forgotten about it and I’d forgotten about it until I hear a bit of it somewhere on the radio or something. And his friend who’s a teacher told him that he was in it.

|315||Nish Kumar||For appearing on 50 Funniest Moments of 2013. He did so well that they asked him back for The 50 Funniest Moments of 2014, but he wasn’t as good on that so he didn’t come back for The 50 Funniest Moments of 2015.|
