226 Sarah Millican For her appearance on Richard and Judy, where Richard Madeley told her that no one had laughed at her to begin with.
227 Russell Howard As the Tea Cup Sick Boy. That’s just what he was called at school. And you’re probably here because he used to play for Basingstoke Town F.C., in mid-field.

231 Bobby Mair As the third cousin of Justin Bieber. That is why you’re all here to see him – and you’re going to be disappointed when you see him, madam. Don’t get your hopes up; there is not much family resemblance.
232 Caroline Quentin As Brenda in Dream Stuffing. She was also Norman’s Wife in Hale and Pace, of course.
233 Shaun Williamson For playing a paramedic on the popular soap opera EastEnders. Sometimes people shout out in the street, “It’s the paramedic from EastEnders.”

239 Simon Evans For his portrayal of Richard Richard in The Way It Is.

255 Robin Ince For his being a programme associate on What’s the Problem With Ann Robinson?
256 Athena Kugblenu For her appearance on Girl on Girl, which I’m guessing is not going to be what I’m hoping it is.
257 David Reed For two things. He’s the second-most famous comedian who supports York City [F.C.]; and the level of the first-famous is quite low, so we don’t need to get too excited. And because he played Seb MacDonnell in Doctors.

259 Kate Robbins For her portrayal of Joan in Sex Lives of the Potato Men.
260 Frank Cottrell-Boyce For his role as Car Boot Dealer in Framed.

264 Sara Pascoe She was an audience member in The Keith Barret Show.
265 Janice Connolly As the occupational therapist in The Locksmith.

277 Adam Buxton As the ghost of Prince Quintus in Stardust.
278 Michael Spicer For his performance in The Last Seven Days of Quant.

280 Bill Burr As Fitzey in Two Guys, a Girl, and a Pizza Place.
281 Robert Webb As the narrator of Family Guy: Ground Breaking Gags. That’ s why we’re all here. But of course to most of us we’ll always remember him as the host of Robert’s Web, whatever else he tries to do.

283 James Acaster For being thanked in the credits of Tim Timinee Tim Timinee Tim Tim To You.
