    Tonetta makes me chuckle. Nearest to a novelty act I can stand 😀

    Mostly sexual, but this clearly not

    Defo Steel Panther. Very rude, but oh so very clever.

    Not a band obviously but Tim Minchin has done some great tunes

    I’d say Steel Panther are a parody band, rather than a comedy one. It’s a fine line though, Spinal Tap put it all into perspective…

    Who remembers this?!

    I like The Duckworth Lewis Methid – although they are more humorous than outright comedy.

    There’s never been another Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band.

    Not set up as a “comedy” band, but Ugly Duckling have some superb humour in their stuff.

    See also “Eye on the gold chain”.

    Another that falls in to that category is IAM.

    “Attentat II” or “Harley Davidson” also from IAM, clever, funny stuff.

    GLC…..You knows it!

    UD are just a great underrated band and brilliant live. I’ll check out some of the others. Although Tap, panther and GLC all seem more like parodies imo

    The Amateur Transplants always make me laugh.

    They are definitely ‘amateur’, but quite funny even if you’re not medical (I’m not, wife is).

    The Amateur Transplants always make me laugh.

    You’ll never be able to listen to any of the songs they’ve re-done the same way again.

    You can add just about anything by Weird Al Yankovic in there as well.

    My brother finds this solo guy funny – I can’t remember his name, but he I recall one song about a man with only one testicle…

    Edit. It’s Stephen Lynch and th song in my mind is Half a Man. Not my cup of tea.

    Randomly browsing YouTube for funny music and it dawned on me that comedy and music is tricky to combine. I can only think of three bands that make me chuckle.

    1: Flight of the Conchords

    2: Rubber Bandits

    [video]https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=FkEimy0xGTk[/video]

    3: Arrogant Worms

    [video]https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=twJFPjrUygg[/video]

    Any other good ones that I’m missing?

    GLC are fantastic, we saw them at T in the Park on the same day as Wu Tang and they weren’t just funny, they put on a better show.

    I saw the grumbleweeds at the height of their fame. I subsequently decided that comedy and music should not mix.
    With the obvious exception of Dread Zeppelin.

    Glad i am not the only one that likes comedy bands/artists. Some parodies are better than the originals too 😀

    Should we also include Professor Elemental and Mr B?

    Kids in the Hall did quite a few musical numbers.

    Roy chubby Brown?
    Wasn’t there an Ozzy dirty comedian who’s name escapes me.

    Can’t believe it got to page two before they got a mention.

    Bad News – weird how a comedy show spawned a band that went on to play MOR.

    Good call on hmhbiscuit.
    I love their first two albums …but I was 15/16 when they were released!:-)

    Steel Panther I see have already been done but isn’t there a vid with Sarah Silverman in where she deliberately misunderstands ‘death to all but metal ‘as ‘death to all butt-metal’?

    Also Rubberbandits mentioned earlier but my fave is Dad’s best Friend

    “My wife sells cheese on the Internet
    I think about her sister when we’re intimate
    Her family and friends, they don’t like me anymore
    ‘Cause I threatened all her brothers with an antique sword”
