I vote South Park
started good and got better and better and better
plus RANDY MARSH!
curb might be my number two
yeah the office
followed by Curb
exactly what commandercool said!
and a packet of crisps
Trailer Park Boys
It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia
tell me about yourself.
do you live in norwich?
i watched the "pooped the bed" philidephia episode at work the other day. it's a good one. dee playing up to the sex & the city thing is brilliant.
see you later bro
"Hi, my name is Artemis, and I have a bleached asshole"
i never get bored of watching them. i could watch the same episode every day and not tire of it. without doubt the funniest programme of the century.
I never get tired of them
is it a Region 1 DVD? i rinse them online as i've not seen a UK version of the DVD. there's a couple of sites that have every episode, which is nice.
My dad brought them back from America about 2 years ago, bundled in with a load of other dvds. I'd never even heard of the show before that, and I was completely hooked after the first episode.
fotc, first series of nighty night.
but and the office
Arrested Development or Peep Show
if they'd do another series of that. Can imagine it will be quite hard to do with the actors getting even older.
Peep Show, although it has petered out I think
i also think the IT crowd is underrated - it's got a populist appeal and richard ayeode is brilliant as moss.
The IT Crowd is underrated, I find it getting better throughout every series, and Moss is a fantastic character. I wouldn't rank it among the best although it's pretty great.
sometimes i'm not in the mood for something as uncomfortable as peep/curb.
the first two series are in a different league to everything else this decade has coughed up.
like Big Train and Man Stroke Woman
cut me some slack
Doesn't really count unless you're a particular fan of the second series, particularly as Graham Linehan wasn't on board and it wasn't as popular.
i dunno though. curb is amazing also. probably can't split the two. british? not sure, the office. i love outnumbered too, but it's not the best.
outnumbered is probably the best thing the beeb have done since
i thought was "the best since the office". although outnumbered is fucking brilliant. certainly one of the funniest british shows i've seen for a while.
The US Office
has to be the US version. Although I still vote for Arrested Development. Oh and 30 Rock
Was Spaced the noughties?
series one = 90s, series 2 = 00s
was 90s i think? or maybe early noughties?
Series 2 was 2001, so I'm going for that.
Arrested Development, Curb Your Enthusiasm and The Office close behind.
Marion and Geoff so much.
but then, veryone with any idea about comedy and indeed life in general would know this already.
Peep show; US Office; and (UK) Office also get a mention.
even Peep Show, which comes second, is pretty piss poor in comparison.
Some people's idea of good comedy baffles me..I mean...The IT Crowd!?
Good charcters, decent storylines, Graham Linehan.
what's not to like?
you really can't go wrong with Chris Morris.
i'd never nominate it for "best comedy ever" but it's funny, moss is great, chris morris was funny in the first series, haven't seen the third series yet but both the first two series were very watchable.
I hope at least 50% of the answers have been this, I haven't read the thread before I posted.

Wins it for me! If you haven't seen it check it out; it's the most bizarrely funny and disturbing show in a long time!
Also South Park.
I'm Alan Partridge (Series 2)
There we go.
Flight of the Conchords
One of those four. I can't decide which.
because YOU'VE GOT TO LAUGH HAVEN'T YOU?
Flight of the Conchords
Garth Merengi's Dark Place
Dean Learner's Man to Man
and 30 Rock.
but notable mentions for Arrested Development, Peep Show, Flight of the Conchords, Family Guy and The Mighty Boosh.
Look Around You (Season One)
Garth Marenghi's Darkplace
Brass Eye/The Day Today/Jam
Curb Your Enthusiasm
The Office (US/UK)
I'm Alan Partridge
Brass Eye, The Day Today and the best bits of Partridge are all 90s.
Well, the correct answer is AD anyway.
honourable mentions to peep show, catterick, league of gentlemen and monkey dust.
its just brilliant!
I cant get into aressted development at all I find that dudes voice over really annoying.
Curb, Merenghi, Nathan Barley, Extras, Boosh, Flight of the Conchords, Peep Show, IT Crowd, Snuff Box, Spaced have all been brilliant too.
but south park is my favourite tv programme of all time
South Park, The Office, Peep Show and Curb Your Enthusiasm round out my top five in no particular order.
But seriously, the replay value of AD is what seals it. I've watched the first series alone from beginning to end about 8 times and it never gets less funny.
its technically more brilliant and original than the Office something Gervais admits himself. not that the Office isnt amazing too mind you...
r kelly's trapped in the closet. probably the finest comedy in a long time.
is perhaps the best comedy show ever. In The Loop looks amazing as well. http://www.guardian.co.uk/film/filmblog/2009/mar/04/clip-in-the-loop-armando-iannucci
& Coach Trip
followed by Jam, Peep Show, 30 Rock, Curb and The Colbert Report (if it counts).
and theres others of course...
A big fuck-you from the internet abyss for disrespecting The Office and Arrested Development in the same post. Oh, and Peep Show too. Trust me, it casts you in a very poor light.
Of more importance, how could I forget The Thick Of It in my round-up? Brilliant!
its unsubstantiated on the grounds that you're completely wrong.
So lol to me
World of Pub
Garth Merengi's Darkplace
Spaced (series 2)
Trailer Park Boys
Summer Heights High
Xavier: Renegade Angel
I feel like there should be more than that after a decade, but 1990s comedy >>>>>>>>>>>> 2000s comedy
Unlike any other comedy I've seen.
also dare to believe is outstanding. is there a dvd out?
If there are three shows that I would kill for on DVD, they would have to be: The Trip, Vidz and Dare To Believe.
But! There are parts of episodes on Youtube! Which I'm watching right now
as to how to watch it online or something that'd be great.
it's Green Wing.
I haven't found anything I've found funnier than that yet.
of gentlemen (though first series 99)
followed by flight of the conchords.
