    Following on from another thread, I thought I’d start this.
    I’ll kick it off with this, one of my current favourite comedians...

        Henning has been epic for years to Radio4 listeners :blue thumb:

        I daren't put any Bill Hicks on here but he is my comedy god!
        Another Radio4 favourite of mine is the American essayist David Sedaris............


        Continuing the Radio4 theme, Mark Steel.............

                  Aww I love Dad's Army...I can quite easily watch them back to back on a rainy saturday afternoon.

                  A few of my other favourites of the past have been The Brittas Empire, Red Dwarf and One Foot in the Grave. All really corny but stupidly funny. Oh and Alan Partridge (can't stand the actor but god the character is so funny).

                  My all time favourite comedy is Father Ted....I must know every line to every episode :loll:

                        Great stuff! One thing that I have been recording on the Tivo is As Time Goes By. Exactly the sort of gentle comedy that I used to loath but over the years I have really come to appreciate Geoffrey Palmer.
