Nope, think that’s all the UK comedy shows. Thanks joke

woah. that’s a lot of 2s

Love that little and large are in this.

That really is a lot of comedies.

Someone requested it, can’t remember who

Think I’d havr given more 5s without Monkey Dust setting the bar too high. Think about this quite a lot on my commute.

What’s that one that had Samantha Janus in where the guy who wouldn’t leave the flat then went on to be famous and so they changed the actor? Also had a ginger guy in?

Game On?

I thought it was, then looked at the list in the first post and saw US comedies. Should have checked the title, etc.

No worries, I’m gonna do a thread right at the end with all the other suggestions, doesn’t matter where they’re from. I’ll do Lead Balloon then too @wizardlizard :slight_smile:
