So we asked our Twitter followers. We asked around the Huffington Post UK office. Hell, we even dug deep and asked ourselves.
We asked the most important question you could ask, at least on a Wednesday. Not 'What would Jennifer Aniston do?' - but 'Who is your comedy crush?'
And here, below, were the most popular choices - all wrapped up in one completely gratuitous gallery of comedians and comedy actors who don't just make us laugh, but also make us go a little mushy inside. Y'know - in a lurrrve way.
