Blackadder as sitcom set a new quality in British television - historical show that made fun of the British past wasn't that original (to recall Dad's Army or The Almost Complete History of Britain), but the level of humour and great characters made it a classic. But just like in The Life of Brian there was another show, who did not made it to the top, although it had all the components to be great - Chelmsford 123.

For many people 1990s were in United States the golden era for sitcoms, there were such titles as Seinfeld, Friends, Drew Caret Show or Everybody Loves Raymond, to name just few.

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).

Lateline creator Al Franken was in a past a comedian, writer for Saturday Night Live, he was an actor, but then he became an active politician and right now is US Senator.

Wonderland - Australian gem of comedy

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.

Then Churchill Said to Me 1982 British sitcom

Up Pompeii was a sitcom that placed Frankie Howerd in the spotlight - with scripts by Talbot Rothwell, unique formula (breaking the fourth wall) and dialogues full of innuendoes it was a perfect setting for Howerd, whose stand up routines as well as film appearances were very close the character he was playing in Up Pompeii. Later Whoops Baghdad was almost exact copy of Up Pompeii, but set in the Middle East, but in early 1980s Howerd was given another series, Then Churchill Said to Me, as it turned out the last in his career.

Hut 33 World War 2 radio comedy

After great success of such TV series as Dad’s Army, It Ain’t Half Hot Mum or ’Allo ’Allo it seemed that World War 2 as theme for comedy has run dry - what more can be said about the Blitz, ration books and shouting sergeants? Another approach to war was Then Churchill Said to Me starring Frankie Howerd that made very little impact when finally has premiered. Later Goodnight Sweetheart was pushing the envelope by introducing time travel element, but idea for radio show that takes place during World War 2 seemed like really, really far fetched.

Dads Army 1968-1977 British sitcom

It was hard to predict that this comedy series is gonna be such hit - 20 years after the end of World War 2 it seemed that British viewers would prefer to leave the war themes behind, the war films were more or less dying part of British cinema. But when Jimmy Perry come up with the idea for Dad’s Army there was another snag - is 20 years after the war enough to make a sitcom about World War 2? People still remembered the blackouts, the air raids, the food rationing...

Comedy Series Blog - we search all the interesting (and sometimes not that interesting) comedy series from around the world. Some of them might be slightly better than the others, but in comedy there are no strict rules - sometimes less funny series, but made with skillful touch could be a hit. On the other hand there are series that try too hard to be funny and lose on the plots and characters building.
