Looking for a really funny show. Suggestions?

Postby CrysaniaMajere » Thu Jun 09, 2011 4:56 pm

The days at work are really long, so I'd like some funny things to help me. Possibly something I can find on Dvd or maybe on youtube.
Does anyone have a suggestion?

(I found on youtube 7 episodes of Fast And Loose and it was kind of funny, but there's no more, and I need something else. Any kind of show, as long as it's a funny one ^_^)

There's lots of comedy stuff on channel4 on demand if you're in the UK. I don't know if it works outside of the UK...

Probably not, most of my favourite comedy is either BBC2 or C4/E4 grown. :)

Not too expensive on DVD, though.


Oooh, try Black Books too. :D

If you watch Blackadder - the first series is a bit pants.

But the other three are good - my personal order of fabness is Series 2, Series 4, Series 3, lots of other, better comedy programmes, Series 1.

Yes ignore the first season of Blackadder. Series 2,3 and 4 are the best of the best :P

What??? No, the first series was brilliant. Ignore them. It's worth watching the whole series just to see (/hear) his dad (slaughtered an entire army armed only with a small knife for paring fruit).
