    Can anyone recommend a good comedy? Seems to me they are a rarity these days. :D

    Both, now that you mention it. In my opinion a good comedy is the hardest to make. :)

    It wasn't a dress!
    It was a skirt.
    Technically it wasn't even a skirt. It was a t-shirt where I stuck my legs through and folded over.

    I personally enjoy Sean Lock, Jason Manford, Jack Dee and Lee Mack as stand-up comedians. Check them out.

    For films I will ALWAYS recommend Me, Myself & Irene. I'm a Jim Carrey fan so that is biased.

    For TV Shows, I definately recommend the IT crowd! Just for Moss and Matt Berry.

    King of Queens is also incredibly great.
