A couple of books I'd recommend that you should read are by Rob Grant (one half of the original Red Dwarf creators, the other being Doug Naylor)

Click on each suggestion for a synopsis for each book courtesy of Wiki:
Colony
Incompetence
Fat

I also recommend the Red Dwarf books too. Even if you have watched the episodes the books are so much funnier and darker.

All extremely funny and very well written.

I think they write their best stuff (Red Dwarf) as a team. I loved the first two books written together. The Last Human and Backwards were written individually by each writer and I think they lose something. :?

Got Colony and Incompetnce which i think are both not too bad.
Incompetence was really funny the first time I read it but not as good the second time round

The jointly written Dwarf books and wonderful.

The individual stuff...not so.
I found Colony to be a real drag to finish.
