Talking Comic Capers...ha ha ha


Yep just another thread to fill the space.

Vote your favorite comedy on TV. Please list if others.

Hmmm donut, what can I say, Homer is my hero

Fawlty Towers is a classic, Rowan Atkinson is the best British actor I've seen.

EDIT: I missed out on 'The Office' argh!

How could "Mr. Bean" have made this list and "Blackadder" not? If we had to pick one Rowan Atkinson series (to be fair to non-RA comedy)... Blackadder would beat out Bean any day of the week.

No preference...I voted "other" because I don't really watch TV much. When I do watch TV, it's usually Saturday morning cartoons with my 3 year old hahaha.
