L is for...

Laughter!

Oh boy, do I like a laugh or do I like a laugh? As with most things, I find that my sense of humour is really all over the place. Be it observational comedy like Mark Watson, satirical comedy like Stewart Lee or just really weird, songs-with-a-keyboard David O' Doherty who I saw a few years ago. 


It's the same with TV shows too. My all-time favourite is The Office US, which I am currently re-watching for the fourth time. Not entirely sure how that happened, but I'm happy about it all the same. My favourite character changes quite a lot, but it's currently Stanley - when he tells Ryan off always has me in fits of laughter. Other funny shows I like are anything with Alan Partridge in, The IT Crowd and other hilarious stuff like that. That's without even mentioning the hundreds of other shows I've watched on Netflix or back in the day before wireless internet. 

This is the point when I mention how I think Paul Rudd looks like Joe...
I would say at least 80% of films I watch are comedies. I do like a good drama, but comedy is really where my heart lies. It's very cliched to say, but I think the world is already far too full of destruction and unhappiness to want to watch over two hours of fake explosions or Liam Neeson's family being kidnapped over and over again. Give me Tina Fey, Paul Rudd - yes, please! - or Ben Stiller at their comical best any day of the week. 

What are your favourite comedies? Tell me what I need to add to my 'to watch' list!
