A Diary of the Mundane and Mediocre

16th March 2011: Wednesdays wonder 5- Comedy Sketches

These are my top 5 comedy sketches. You will notice that a lot of them come from Graham Lineham’s Big Train. But they were chosen not only for their hilarity, but also because of their shortness. Most of the Peter Cook & Dudley Moore sketches run at about 7 minutes, and though they are genius in their humour they are a little on the long side for causal viewing. Many of you will know how much I love A bit of Fry and Laurie so it will come as a suprise that I have only chosen one. The problem there is, there is just to many to choose from. Enjoy!

In this sketch note how Peter Cook trys to put Dudley Moore off with his hilarious ad libs. Comedy at its finest.

The simplicity of this sketch is brilliant, everytime I see this it brings tears of laughter to my eyes. Simple genius.

Stephen Fry always amazes me, and in this sketch the maestro of words steals the show. His flamboyant use of the English language is nothing less than amazing.

A brilliant take on Hitchcock, and a fantastic satire on the middle classes view on the British working class.

No way! I do not believe it, that guys a wanker!..says it all really.
