    For me:

    Movies:

    1. Pulp Fiction - maybe not a comedy per say, but so, so many one liners - it's still my #1
    2. Army of Darkness - B grade, but gold
    3. History of the World Part 1
    4. Monty Python - Life of Brian
    5. Shrek/Office Space (Can't decide)

    TV:

    1. Black Adder 3rd Series
    2. Simpsons
    3. Ali G

    That's about all I got for the TV.

    Comedians (a bit more for the mix):

    1. Billy Connolly
    2. Rohan Atkinson
    3. Eddie Murphy

    Bottle Rocket
    The Jerk
    God of Cookery

    I cannot believe this thread has gone on this long without Blazing Saddles being mentioned. Mel Brooks is a comedic genius. :D

    Favorite comedy picks

    1. National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation
    2. Office space
    3. Trading Places
    4. Moneypit
    5. Planes, Trains, and Automobiles
    That being said I would also like to comment that "The Jerk" is a great pick. As far as B movies go you just can't beat "Army of Darkness" and "Big Trouble in Little China".

    I thought about "Blazing Saddles" but I didn't want to offend :o

    Ahhh... Christmas vacation, how could I forget. That movie is awesome. I'm working on a new non-lucrative cereal varnish that locks the flavor in and keeps the mositure out. :D

    What, no Jack Black Flicks??

    Saving Silverman is hilarious!

    hmm... I'm posting for two people (LiveWire too!) so if I go over 5, that's why!

    Repeats from previous lists:
    American Pie
    Dumb and Dumber
    Office Space
    MallRats
    Princess Bride
    Top Secret (was my favorite as a teen! Loved Val Kimler!)

    For some new ones:
    Galaxy Quest (ok, we went to see this after a night of drinking, it was really funny then! Our kids like it!)
    Daddy Day Care (another kid friendly one, but still really funny!)
    A Fish Called Wanda

    Ok, there is a few. I'm sure I'll think of more later!

    OH! Thought of one more: STRANGE BREW - Rick Moranis and Dave Thomas, eh? :D

    heheh

    Happy Gilmore - "You're gonna die clown!!!"
    Liar Liar... "I......... CCaaaaaaaan't LLLLLIiiieeeeee!!!!"
    Pet Detective When Nature Calls "Wing-ed spawn of ssssaaattttttaaaaaaannnnnn!"
    The Water Boy - "Girls are not the devil, football is not the devil..."
    Spaceballs - "You didn't see that did you?", "No sir, I did not see you playing with your dolls again..."

    I like over the top silly comedy... Specifically Adam Sandler and Jim Carey.

    Just wait til you actually WORK in an office... then you'll view Office Space with a whole new level of appreciation.

    I can't believe no one's mentioned Haiku Tunnel. Superb film.
