Comment a block in shell

We all know, to comment out a line in shell script, '#' token is inserted in the line that needs to be made dead.
Eg:

Code:
# This is a dead line
echo "This line is live"
However, '#' token can be pesky if a block of lines need to be commented out.
Say, to comment out the following block using '#'

Code:
# comment starts here
# All these lines
# are blocked
# using '#' token
# ...
# ...
# ...
