Simon Bird's Comedy Heroes

This week we spoke to the man known to many as 'briefcase w*nker'. But, for these purposes and because we like the chap, we'll call him Simon Bird, star of The Inbetweeners and Friday Night Dinner.

As well as being this week's cover star, fronting our Sitcom Search competition and being interviewed by us, he also found time to tell us about his top five comedians. What a gent.

Friday Night Dinner returns to Channel 4 later this year. Chickens will air on Sky Atlantic HD in 2013
