Multcolib My Librarian Karen E: The best of the BBC (comedy)

Monty Python's Flying Circus
Monty Python's Flying Circus DVD Set 1 (DVD - 1999 ) DVD Comedy MONTY1 All copies in use. Availability details Holds: 1 on 3 copies

Annotation:Here's a classic of British comedy; six episodes from the first season feature all of the wonderful, giddy silliness of Monty Python!

The Thick of It
The Thick of It Seasons 1-4 (DVD - 2013 ) DVD Comedy THICK Available in some locations Holds: 2 on 9 copies

Annotation:Chronicles the blunders of the fictitious Department of Social Affairs and Citizenship, a government department barely registering on the national radar. In this Ministry, every announcement is followed by a whirlwind of u-turns, every policy is a scramble and every mishap is met with abuse from the Prime Minister's policy enforcer. Starring the newest Dr. Who, Peter Capaldi.

Shameless
Shameless Season 1 & 2 Original UK Series (DVD - 2013 ) DVD Drama SHAMELES1 All copies in use. Availability details Holds: 17 on 5 copies

Annotation:The story centers around a young group of siblings pretty much neglected by their alcoholic father, surviving by their wits, and humor, on a rough Manchester council estate. James McAvoy stars in the first 2 seasons. Works better in the original British version than the American remake (at least in my opinion).

Fortysomething
Fortysomething (DVD - 2008 ) DVD Comedy FORTYSOME All copies in use. Availability details

Annotation:Paul Slippery is an anxiety-ridden British doctor suffering from all those symptoms and more. His wife has embarked on a new career and perhaps an extramarital affair or two. His three oversexed sons mock him without mercy. And at work he's tangled in red tape and tormented by a flaky colleague. Hugh Laurie is hilarious!

Doc Martin
Doc Martin Series 1 (DVD - 2007 ) DVD Comedy DOC1 All copies in use. Availability details Holds: 6 on 20 copies

Annotation:When the brilliant but socially awkward and neurotic Doc Martin develops an aversion to blood, he abandons his career as a celebrated London surgeon and becomes the only doctor in a sleepy small town where his tactless manner soon has everybody in an uproar. Watch Martin get to know the town's hysterical mix of quirky residents as he finds new ways to put his foot in his mouth.

The IT Crowd
The IT Crowd The Complete First Season (DVD - 2009 ) DVD Comedy IT All copies in use. Availability details Holds: 3 on 5 copies

The Vicar of Dibley
The Vicar of Dibley The Divine Collection (DVD - 2003 ) DVD Comedy VICAR Available in some locations

Annotation:The sleepy English village of Dibley is plunged into an uproar when its new vicar turns out to be a woman. And not just any woman, but the unconventional Geraldine Granger who brings her own earthy spirit and humor to the pulpit. Starring Dawn French who is wonderful!

Extras
