Best single episode of TV comedy

Probably been done before but oh well. What’s the best/funniest one episode of any TV comedy you’ve ever seen?
Reckon my top 5 (an ever changing list) at this precise moment would be:
The US Office - Dinner Party
Peep Show - Mark’s Wedding
Alan Partridge vs the farmers
The Thick Of It - The enquiry episode and, always number one, Spinners and Losers.

Virtually any episode of Parks and Recreation seasons 2-4.

Off the top of my head it would be either the L’il Sebastian one, or the one where they go to Ron’s cabin.

New Jack City is the best episode of Father Ted.

Best episode of comedy ever might well be the Russell Crowe episode of South Park.

Episode of Bottom where they watch cricket on the roof instead of looking after the shop. “And he’s out! Oh no, hang on he’s back in again, aww, she’s shut the curtains”

Father Ted - where they go to the caravan.

Black Books - “wine” episode.

Spaced - the paintball episode.
