Synopsis

Britain's Greatest TV Comedy Moments by Louis Barfe

British TV comedy in its glorious forms - from sitcom to sketch shows -is a much-loved highlight of the small-screen schedules. In this must-have collection, Louis Barfe has selected the very best of British television's comedy classics. Unforgettable moments from Dad's Army, Blackadder and Fawlty Towers rub shoulders with classic sketches including Monty Python's 'Dead Parrot' and The Two Ronnies' 'From Handles'. Generation-defining examples from That Was the Week That Was and Spitting Image appear alongside relishable offcuts from more recent triumphs including The Office, The Thick of It and Outnumbered. Showcasing our funniest TV comedy stars, their shows and their writers, Britain's Greatest TV Comedy Moments is a hilarious trip down memory lane.
