    Only Fools And Horses, always raises a smile and you only have to say chandelier and everyone starts laughing. There are many more moments like that. Everyone needs to smile.

    Fawlty Towers! It was such a classic and as they only made a few episodes it was always fresh and incredibly funny. Even now I can watch it and laugh out loud at the antics.

    I love Mrs Doubtfire, Robin Williams is just so funny in this very amusing film and the way in which he quickly has to change all the time is just hilarious. It's so funny how his family doesn't recognise him and funny when they do but the underlying message, his love for his family and what he's prepared to do to see them everyday is brilliant. I could watch it over and over again. Robin Williams, a true legend and so sadly missed.

    Steptoe and Son, written by the brilliant Ray Galton and Alan Simpson. It’s difficult to choose one particular episode, each one is so beautifully crafted with just the right amount of pathos and comedy. Both Harold and Albert are victims of their own making and the ever-present ambition of Harold to escape the clutches of his manipulative Father provides no end of hilarious situations. Recently, the ‘very young’ Yootha Joyce’ turned up as Harold’s latest love interest much to the annoyance of Albert. Back in the day Steptoe and Son was classed as a sitcom but each episode feels like a perfect short stage play. Both characters are equally infuriating and endearing and although it’s clear the status quo will never change I can’t help rooting for Harold.

    The Play That Goes Wrong was hilarious. All the props being in the wrong place or not there at all and the characters just carrying on using a different item was so funny.

    It has to be Monty Python. Who will ever forget the dead parrot sketch or lumberjack song!! An absolute classic that appeals to all nationalities and age groups

    I love Upstart Crow but maybe knowing Shakespeare is necessary to get all the jokes. I love the beginning, working out which play is coming up. Will's comments on his commute home from London are so funny and so relevant today. A great show.

    The funniest musical has to be The Book of Mormon. I laughed from start to finish.
    Would love to add a play to my list. Maybe this play.

    Agree with Sararose, That episode of Not Going Out was one of the funniest half hours on TV that I've ever seen - probably!

    Fawlty Towers - almost all of them were very funny but I particularly liked the Waldorf salad episode.

    Not Going Out - I howled with laughter at a recent episode when Lee and Lucy tried to teach the twins the facts of life.The twins gave their interpretation of Lee's limited knowledge to their class and as a result Lee and Lucy are called in to see Miss Anstis. the teacher. She reprimands them while they are sitting opposite the her on child sized chairs! Apparently the twins told the class that mummies and daddies lie down together and then have a puppy! Lee's embarrassment at being coerced to use correct anatomical words is hilarious,
    I have enjoyed all the series but this episode will stick in my mind for some time!
