Molly Billygoat (MollyBillygoat) | 117 comments I know it isn't strictly book-talk, but plots and scripts on comedy TV shows are highly inspiring for me as a writer.

I am curious to know what floats your boat, too! Maybe I'll discover some awesome new comedy. :D

So, what makes you laugh the hardest?

Here are my thee favourites (I left cartoons out, because their inclusion would make the list impossible for me):

1) Black Books

2) Fawlty Towers

3) It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia
TIED WITH
Curb your Enthusiasm

K | 1137 comments More than three, I know... It's hard to choose. Lol.

Molly Billygoat (MollyBillygoat) | 117 comments My Family - I actually haven't seen it but know of it. Number one, huh?! Maybe I should check it out...
An Idiot Abroad - high on my list of must-watches! I also love anything Ricky Gervais. Have you seen "Life's too Short"?

Outnumbered is another British one that is high on my charts.

Molly Billygoat (MollyBillygoat) | 117 comments Oh, damn, I was tossing up as to whether it should be in that folder or this one. Good~o, thanks Brenda. :)

My Family is a British sitcom about a very dysfunctional family living in London suburbia. It cracks me up sooooo much!

It sounds totally like Outnumbered, so I'm in! Have you seen Outnumbered? There's some scarily good acting on the part of the three kids in that show.

Angela Verdenius (angelacatlover) | 376 comments My top three are

Keeping Up Appearances
Dad's Army
Are You Being Served?

But then, can I quickly add (then run away) - Open All Hours?

I love the British humour, especially the early humour.

Molly Billygoat (MollyBillygoat) | 117 comments Haahaha! Are You Being Served! Genital jokes are always funny.

Keeping Up Appearances is really popular among my loved ones. I find it a little too painful! Poor Richard...

one of my most favourite and funny shows ever is Vendredi tout est permis avec Arthur, which translates as 'Anything Goes' with Arthur.

I went to stay with some friends in Belgium and they turned it on and it was absolutely hilarious!
