BBC sketch show that while continuing to show the misadventures of a series of popular characters now also introduces a slew of new oddballs and misfits for us to enjoy including Tory Boy and The Lovely Wobbly Randy Old Ladies.
Popular BBC sketch show that introduces a whole host of memorable characters such as Tim-Nice-But-Dim, Wayne and Waynetta Slob, The Old Gits and teenagers Kevin and Perry. The show spawned a slew of spin-off series and films.
Hugely influential, surreal and anarchic parody of the variety show format. Vic Reeves and Bob Mortimer introduce a selection of eccentric characters. The show often appears to be completely random, ramshackle and nonsensical.

I died laughing watching this, my ghost is writing this.
Now in it's tenth year, shooting stars is still one of the funniest shows on tv. Gone is the dove from above, replaced by a scary looking fox who asks in a gruff voice for some gin. Will Self, as a team captain, is introduced with pantomine style "evil" music. The "clips" round includes hilarious clips such as "the Sunderland film society presents the Incredible Hulk" and "nigella bites". Questions include "Madonna's music is getting worse isn't it?" and "name a dog". Everything that happens on it is funny, and I just hope that they're showing it in America. Not that they'd understand it...
