My top five favourite British comedies


My top 5 favourite British comedies!

This post is partly derived from a list on my Living Social Facebook application, for those of you who were smart enough to have never registered for Facebook but therefore can’t see my obsessively generated lists.

This list is my own top five favourite British comedies, in no particular order. I would have put Monty Python’s Flying Circus on here, but I think it’s safe to say that show is an assumed given for anyone who enjoys British comedy, am I right or am I right?

  • Blackadder
  • The Brittas Empire
  • Keeping Up Appearances
  • Fawlty Towers
  • Little Britain

If only there was room for Some Mothers Do ‘Ave ‘Em too. I also love Red Dwarf but I’m saving that for a science fiction show list. And I guess I should attribute Mr Bean as well, I remember laughing so hard when I was a kid that I have fond memories of it, even if most people I know can’t stand it!

A top five list is definitely more difficult to think up compared to a top ten. Everything you chop off is such a hard decision.
