Top 10 Best British Comedy Shows of All Time
The Top Ten
Greatest Britcom of all time! David Jason gave us one of tv's greatest characters in Delboy! "You blonker Rodney"... LMAO. Good Times... To bad BBC America doesn't play it.
Obviously the best. Great characters, writing and jokes.
I LOVE RICHARD AND NOEL! ...oh yeah, and it's a great show, highly recommend (Richmond is the best character don't @ me)
Ah yes this is great! Lost to Friday night dinner in the end but this is still a very hilarious show. Maurice Moss just makes this show.
Anyone who calls this show unfunny should be turned off, then back on again
This and Only Fools And Horses should be at the top. Inbetweeners is just so hilarious and rude it's amazing. Will, Jay and Neil are so funny. Loads of new words have been invented from this show and is the funniest show this century.
Rude but we all admit it's hilarious!
Rowan Akitson as Mr Bean is one of the funniest things in the world. He is such an amazing actor, and this show of only 13 episodes has been named iften as ine if the greatest sitcoms of all time. It's my seventh favourite show, and my favourite British show. I also like Fawlty Towers (#9) and Monty Python's Flying Circus (#13)
I once was introduced Mr Bean on VHS when I was a kid. Now it’s 2017 and I have started to rewatch it again on YouTube. I couldn’t believe seeing Mr Bean again, I was so excited! Some of the episodes made me laugh so hard, some of them left me dreaming about them, some of them left me speechless, especially when he used Teddy as a paintbrush. But overall what a hilarious man-child he is! Highly intelligent but sometimes arrogant and mean! But hey, hands down, he is the best T.V. character and best show from the UK!
Best comedy ever. "As cunning as a fox who's just been appointed professor of cunning at Oxford university" gives it away!
Blackadder is at number 9? This is easily the best sitcom of all time, let alone the best British comedy. Awful list.
I just love every instance where Baldrick gets up and says 'I have a cunning plan! '
I love it. So strong.
Mark and Jeremy are the funniest comedy characters ever, and Johnson and Super Hans are great too.
This is really the only modern sitcom alongside The Office that should be in the top ten.
This is outrageous
I love this show!
My brother and dad keep on watching it. I am not quite sure what the big deal but now that I have seen this, and it's above mighty boosh and red dwarf, I can't say that I am not curios as to why it is at the top of this list
The best Brits around! The troupe Monty Python are surely the greatest comedy act of all time, without a doubt. Their jokes are clever, witty, and just silly! (I agree. Silly, silly, silly! )
Glad to see these talented blokes take the top spot. They deserve it too!
Where is mrs browns boys & little britain?
The only show which ever managed to get sci-fi plus comedy right! Plots were equally brilliant and hilarious. Not to mention an amazing cast with perfect chemistry!
Wi-Fi and comedy to best genres and they made red dwarf. I am gonna watch it tonight as well.
Does nobody here see that the show is Monty Python's Flying Circus, not just Monty Python? I mean, Monty Python could refer to any of their live shows or their films, but being that this is a list of British comedy shows, just Monty Python should not be on the list.
Brilliant. Genius... that's the comment... that's it
I added this item. It’s so funny that I laugh all the way through episodes, and my sides end up aching as a result! You can watch on the BBC iPlayer (at time of writing) and you can purchase series 1 on DVD.
Series 2 is on the way. It can’t come quickly enough!
Way better than BlackAdder. John Cleese is amazing and every episode is very funny
One of the funniest shows of all time. Everyone in the cast is outstanding.
Brilliant but where is it ain't half hot mum, dad's army, allo allo and are you being served?
All 12 episodes were genius, absolute gold
Honestly, you can't think that nothing is more funnier than mrs brown boys.
It is hilarious. Bad as.
The absolute best show in the world, I highly recommend (you most likely will fall in love with Noel Fielding) I've bee a fan for most of my life, and have been to both live shows! Impeccable (my sisters saw more shows than me because they are older, and were... y'know... actually alive) Ooh plus Noel Fielding is the nicest celebrity ever don't @ me (live met him 6 times, he's lovely) This show is highly entertaining, to be honest it's never really made me die of laughter (well it has sometimes) but it's addicting, very interesting and fun. You'll love it. "So come with us now on a journey through time and space to the world of The Mighty Boosh" you won't regret it (unless you don't like surreal humour, because in that case you're stuffed x)
Should be number one or two in my opinion
The best TV show EVER
should be number one but ok
Brent is the most awkward character ever! (I love the show)
The jokes of this series are very simple and can make people of all ages laugh their heads off.
The best of the best
Just discovered it recently, it’s brilliant. The neighbour, Jim, is absolutely hilarious.
And the Martin’s mother is really rude!
If you don't know this show, you HAVE to see it! The characters, humour, scenarios, EVERYTHING is just done so brilliantly! Definitely one of the best comedies on T.V. today!
Every single character in this is hilarious (apart from Jackie) more people need to watch this
Funniest show on T.V.. Characters are great and the casting is perfect. Martin is just hilarious as too is Jim. The humour is sooo funny and will get you in hysterics every episode guarantee.
