Whoa, these changes are crazy.
Which of these 31 British comedians still look the same as when they won?
The United Kingdom has been kind of an outsized source relative to its population for famous artistic celebrities in America for as long as America has HAD recognizable famous artistic celebrities. And for all the dramatic actors and musicians England, Scotland, Ireland, Northern Ireland, and Wales have produced, the most memorable stars to American audiences might be those gifted in the comedic arts. From the sketch comedy of Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie, to United Kingdom (and Ireland) stand-up comics like Eddie Izzard, Sarah Millican, Billy Connolly, and Russell Brand, to late-night TV show hosts on American TV like James Corden, John Oliver, and Craig Ferguson, to comic actors like Martin Freeman, Rowan Atkinson, and Steve Coogan, to the legendary TV show and movie comedy troupe known as Monty Python, Americans have been thrilling to British comedy for decades.
But what do some of the all-time British (and Scottish, and Irish, and Welsh) comedic greats look like now? How have they changed? Which British comics have had their looks hold up and which haven't? Which ones look completely different and which ones look shockingly the same? Here are 31 classic UK comedians, and you won't believe what they look like now.
