I know that When You Wish Upon A Weinstein was banned for a few years.

Could be it was taken down because of rights issues.

Good.

Not because of the content, but for the fact that I detest it when they break into song.

Gotta sneeeeeeeking suspicion that Mr Macfarlane is somewhat "up himself".

I think so - not usually a fan on comedy songs, but these two hit it spot on:

It centres around two Kiwis living in New York trying to make a go og it but with a useless manager - all very deadpan and, to my eyes and ears, very funny.

Business Time left me cold.

Perhaps I've not missed out!!!

I have to admit that my comedy likes are probably not the same as yours!

(But I still love you anyway! :wink: )

My friends friend Sue writes Two Pints of Lager and Grown Ups (sadly I find it a bit trite, corny and laddish or that would be really cool claim to fame)

Superfurryandy - We are off to see Ivan Brackenbury's Hospital Radio tonight - Will let you know thumbs up or down. OH is quite hard to please comedy wise (if it's not Billy COnnolly that is )

I thought it was Brilliant when Paul Kidby and Terry used a line from Weird Al Yankovic's " Addicted to Spuds " song when portraying Rincewind in The Art of Discworld. :lol: :lol:
Aha! So, Bob's yer uncle... very clever.

Ivan Brackenbury is quite amusing, though - saw him in Edinburgh last year. Hope you enjoyed the show!

I love The Mighty Boosh! The coconut people are awesome, it's the first show where I bought all of the series.
Blackadder, Vicar of Dibley and Father Ted were really good, just wish they were before my time, I've been watching them patchily on Youtube, but it's impossible to find whole episodes and not just clips.
I also like Scrubs, Big Bang Theory and Friends, but they're repeated so much on E4 that they've lost their edge.

Going back further but I still love The Goon Show and anything the late Michael Bentine did would make me weep with laughter :lol:
