Have you ever wondered how many sitcoms are produced every year? About a hounded. Not all of them get a full season, some of them don’t get beyond the pilot episode, some of them materialize for only few weeks and disappear in the archives of TV. Have you ever wondered how many characters would it take to fill all those sitcoms? Five.

The first solo project of comedians Robert Webb and David Mitchell, The Mitchell and Webb Situation, which they wrote themselves and played most of the parts, was more or less a failure. It showed their style, it showed their potential, but failed miserably on the content - most of the sketches seemed under-developed or simply unfinished. Fortunately they moved to the radio to work on their next project, which save their careers.

Jimmy Perry is most remembered for his work on such hit comedy series as Dad’s Army, It Ain’t Half Hot Mum, You Rang, M’Lord? and Hi-de-Hi! that he wrote together with David Croft, but not many people remember that Perry did tried to make some sitcoms on his own and Room Service was one of them.

There were few comedy series that gave the opportunity to take a look what is going on behind the media that we know - television, radio, newspapers. NewsRadio was created by Paul Simms, who previously worked as author for Late Night with David Letterman, which gave him the insight into the media and sitcom The Larry Sanders Show (which was sort of parody of David Letterman).

One of the explanations behind the theory that American government hides the fact that aliens have landed on our planet is that people are not ready for the information that there are other life forms in the universe so mass panic would just burst and put the whole into planet. Of course the explanation is completely bogus - there are no things that would put the WHOLE planet into chaos or standstill. Need a proof? Take Welcome to Our Village, Please Invade Carefully as a guide book.

Miranda Hart is one of those comedians that are easily remembered even if they just show up on the screen. Of course her height helps (she is 6 ft 1in = 1.85 m), but even when she played minor parts in different sitcoms she was easily recognized.

There were several comedy series that concentrated on government officials that make blunder of anything they touch - from Man from the Ministry to Twenty Twelve and from Yes Minister to Spin City. After Twenty Twelve and its spin-off entitled W1A any further approach to such theme would seem pointless and repetitive, right? Wrong! Wonderland created something far better that could have been expected.

There were several sitcoms that dealt with uneasy or awkward situations - that's the basics of the comedy, but there are some themes that actually never worked in comedy. One of them is definitely a divorce, especially when there are children involved. But John Sullivan decided to take a look at that part of life when he wrote Dear John.

Comedy Series Blog - we search all the interesting (and sometimes not that interesting) comedy series from around the world.
