Meme of the week: Your favourite comedy show

I don’t mean to be funny, but can I ask you a simple question:

What’s your favourite comedy show?

What makes you laugh out loud, it’s so funny? It can be an old show, a new show or a show you’re in, for all I know. Good starting points are The Day Today, The IT Crowd and Gavin & Stacey, I feel (although the latter is technically a dramedy or comedy-drama, but I’m don’t really care, since it makes me laugh). I myself am also very partial to the first series of Look Around You.

But how about you?

As always, leave a comment with your answer or a link to your answer on your own blog.
