Dead Ringers is a great radio show, I haven't seen the TV version, I suspect it is less good as it is easy to do an impression if only the voice is used.

I watched Harry Hill's TV Burp last night. He's the comedian who makes me laugh the most  laff

I was watchin Just For Laughs today (a show kinda like Trigger Happy TV, but more innocent).
It's not revolutionary, it has guys dressing up as bears and thngs jumpig out at people but there was one good bit:
Two twins dressed up as workmn, one guy hides and the other guy gets an unsuspecting civilian to hold a measurement tape for him, then he runs around the corner of a a building/
Then the other twin runs around from the other corner with an identical tape end.  laff
The girl just stares at him like he's Superman who just ran around a huge building in 3 seconds!

Harry Hill's TV Burp, often funny, but i do find it a bit hit-and-miss.

The TV version of Dead Ringers is absolutely hilarious. I live in Australia, so a lot of the personalities are unknown to me - but you still get the gist of it. Like all the lifestyle show spoofs:

"I wasn't born, I was knitted."

And I loved it when the main guy went out onto the big London ferris wheel thing, and was like, "It's a setup! Don't listen to them!"  laff

So my main point is, Dead Ringers on TV is still fantastic.

Although I haven't heard the radio show.

Spaced, Whos line is it Anyway?, Red Dwarf, Blackadder (2 is the best, then Goes Fourth), Vicar of Dibley, Father Ted + My Family. All good shows

Monkey Dust is shown on BBC Three in the early hours of the morning, it's twisted, surreal, dark but also very funny.

What? "Whose Line Is It Anyway?" is American! Why else would they be making fun of Colin, the Canadian guy? :P But yeah, I absolutely love that show. Especially the episode where Ryan was a newborn foal.. man, that was classic!

It started out on Channel Four in the UK, not in the US, it moved there later.

Anyone seen Vic & Bob's Catterick, with Reese Shearsmith and Matt Lucas.  It's anything if not bizarre, with a couple of characters from Bang! Bang! It's Reeves & Mortimer's spoof documentary "The Club" resurfacing in different roles.

I've not watched an awful lot of this, but what I have seen has been pretty good.

I liked the club in 'Bang, Bang'.

'Tonight is erotic night at Baron's night club, Hulls premier nightspot.

'Me fat muther'

are two classic quotes that pop up a lot in conversations with mates.

I caught the last half of Black Books tonight, first time I'd seen it.  Fine turn by Simon Pegg as Evan, the psychotic book store manager next-door.

I'm gonna try keep up with this one.

Hell yeah, Simon Pegg's "Go Team!" management speak was fantastic, as was Dylan Moran's "drink anything" gag towards the end.

Especially the coffee gag (Tweek, take note):

Bernard puts a spoonful of coffee into a mug, instead of filling the mug with water, he fills the coffee jar and drinks that.   laff

It was the first time I'd seen Black Books last night too, and I really should have watched it before since I'm a fan of Bill Bailey. Simon Pegg was absolutely hilarious, so I'm probably going to stick with this.

Simon Pegg was good as the freaky manager with the best bit being when he stubs the cigarette out on his hand but I'll have to wait until next weeks show to rate it because I just didnt see enough last night to term it a great comedy but it is the first viewing I've seen so next weeks episode will allow me to judge the show more accurately.
Darkplace was better so far though.

Spaced is a wicked comedy, come to think of it I think I might buy the box set on monday!
The show is outrageously silly, I love the 'daydream' moments Simon Pegg has, they make me laugh hard!

Saw Black Books. Was pretty good, although it seemed more like a "getting back into the swing of things" episode than a great stand alone episode. It's been a while since it was last on. Nonetheless, I'm lookin' forward to next week's episode.

 Incidentally, I loved the part when it looks like Bernard and Manny are going to hug and then Bernard grabs Manny's arms and slaps him round the head with them, shouting "GO AWAY!"  laff

Last night I watched 2DTV on ITV and I thought it was really funny. Most of the scene makes me laugh all the time especially the Jordan joke. Did anybody saw it last night?

I was at a Waitrose party and missed it. Quite annoyed with myself for that. Is it repeated sometime this week? Maybe on ITV2 perhaps?  smile

LoG is much better than Little Britain.

2DTV was quite funny.

Black Books was very good. Dylan whats his name is doing stand up at the Phil and I'm going to see it!  big grin
