    Not quite as sophisticated as 15 Stories High but very funny and definitely worth a look if you like Greg Davies.

    first series of Misfits

    Still liking Misfits…yes first & second were best with Nathan but I still thought third was good. Not sure about fourth now only 1 of the original cast remains but still watching. Funny though it can be, not sure it fits into comedy

    Wasn’t dissing the later series but I think it’s important to start from the beginning.

    Don’t think anyones mentioned Catterick have they? surreal Vic and Bob series, also had Matt Lucas and Morwena Banks plus a few other top funny peps in… def worth a watch.


    Some good suggestions so far, but I can’t believe no one has mentioned…..

    Mrs Brown’s Boys !!!

    I can.

    I also quite liked Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency, although it got cancelled pretty quickly, so clearly not many others are of the same opinion.

    I liked Dirk Gently also, but it got little coverage, wasn’t aimed at shocking puerile teenagers into nervous laughter, and wasn’t on a prime channel at prime time.


    The Mighty Boosh

    Comedy? Load of dribbling cobblers more like. But not as bad as Noel Fieldings Luxury Comedy show or whatever it was called …

    There’s not a lot after about 2001 that’s much good when compared against what came before. A lot of the ‘modern’ stuff seems very dumbed down and formulaic.

    Ok I now have a list of 32 from this lot which I either haven’t seen or want to watch again now you have reminded me.

    I think there will be a big box of DVD’s heading over to Austria within a week!

    Peep show.


    And until Ralph Little left, Two pints of lager and a packet of crisps.

    Game on

    One of my all time favourite shows! Only the first series of course.


    Not a sitcom but extremely funny and British. Fonejacker and Facejacker.

    Thank you, goodnight, much love.


    3 pages and no Men Behaving Badly..did I imagine it was ever funny (I know it wasn’t by the end but I thought it started well – no? )

    Still Game
    Monkey Dust. One of the bleakest comedies. very apt in these times of austerity. ‘Peadofinder general’ sketches are very topical at the minute.


    I cant believe that Chelmsford 123 hasnt been mentioned! Jimmy Mulville and Rory McGrath were brilliant in it, McGrath particularly.

    Nightingales is fantastic too, well worth hunting that down.

    I bought the Peep show box set series 1-6 from HMV recently which was really good, i kept missing it when it was on so it was nice to watch it all in a week!

    Game On was also quite good but then maybe that was just because it had Samantha Janus in it and I was 14….

    My favourite ever tv comedy though was Bottom… 30 minutes of complete anarchy!


    Black Books?

    It passed me by originally but when I do catch a repeat somewhere it’s always made me laugh hard.
