A Listmania! list by "thephilosophist"
 
Eddie Izzard: Definite Article [VHS]
1.  Eddie Izzard: Definite Article [VHS] VHS Eddie Izzard
The list author says:
  "Eddie's finest show.  Nearly 2 hours of ingenious comic mayhem from one of the finest stand up comics in the world."
8.59   Used & New from: 0.01
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (27 customer reviews)

Spaced--Complete Series 2 [VHS]
2.  Spaced--Complete Series 2 [VHS] VHS Simon Pegg
The list author says:
  "One of the most ingenious comedies ever made.  Plenty of comic references to well known movies and brilliantly funny characters.  It helps to have seen the first series, but by no means necessary."
14.95   Used & New from: 0.95
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (29 customer reviews)

The League Of Gentlemen: The Entire Second Series [VHS] [1999]
3.  The League Of Gentlemen: The Entire Second Series [VHS] [1999] VHS Mark Gatiss
The list author says:
  "Very funny and quite dark and surreal at times, but therein lies its genius.  The League are excellent observers of people's behaviour and can mix different, often contrasting, emotions with comedy."
6.00   Used & New from: 0.73
4.9 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (29 customer reviews)

Father Ted: Series 2 - Part 1 [VHS] [1995]
4.  Father Ted: Series 2 - Part 1 [VHS] [1995] VHS Dermot Morgan
The list author says:
  "This is one of the funniest comedies ever made and is always enjoyable.  Very highly recommended."
Used & New from: 3.69
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (89 customer reviews)

Father Ted - Series 2 Part 2 [VHS] [1995]
5.  Father Ted - Series 2 Part 2 [VHS] [1995] VHS Dermot Morgan

  "The second half of Father Ted series 2.  Need I say any more?"
Used & New from: 5.58

The League Of Gentlemen - The Entire First Series [VHS] [1999]
6.  The League Of Gentlemen - The Entire First Series [VHS] [1999] VHS Mark Gatiss
The list author says:
  "A little less dark than the second series but still deadly funny.  The highlight for me is in the last episode, with Mr Chinnery helping to birth a calf.  I very nearly died laughing."
3.35   Used & New from: 0.01
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (17 customer reviews)

Spaced: The Complete First And Second Series (Box Set) [VHS]
7.  Spaced: The Complete First And Second Series (Box Set) [VHS] VHS Jessica Stevenson
The list author says:
  "The best episode is number 3 primarily because I am a huge fan of Resident Evil.  Mike is one of the best characters in comedy, simply because we all know someone just like him."
Used & New from: 39.95
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (175 customer reviews)

Father Ted: The Complete Third Series [VHS] [1995]
8.  Father Ted: The Complete Third Series [VHS] [1995] VHS Dermot Morgan
The list author says:
  "Contains the immortal episodes 'Escape from Victory' and 'Kicking Bishop Brennan up the Arse'.  Extremely funny, always."
Used & New from: 3.80
5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (24 customer reviews)

Father Ted: The Complete First Series [VHS] [1995]
9.  Father Ted: The Complete First Series [VHS] [1995] VHS Dermot Morgan
The list author says:
  "Very original sitcom with an array of entertaining characters.  As with League, the genius lies with making comedy out of observation of others' behaviour."
10.19   Used & New from: 3.79
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (33 customer reviews)

Four Rooms [VHS] [1995]
10.  Four Rooms [VHS] [1995] VHS Tim Roth
The list author says:
  "4 completely different but very funny stories, by 4 different directors including Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez, set in a hotel and linked by the hellishly camp bellboy, played by Tim Roth."
2.19   Used & New from: 0.02
3.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (30 customer reviews)

This Is Spinal Tap [VHS]
11.  This Is Spinal Tap [VHS] VHS Rob Reiner

4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (119 customer reviews) | 2 customer discussions

Hannibal [VHS]
12.  Hannibal [VHS] VHS Anthony Hopkins|Julianne Moore
The list author says:
  "Very funny, but for all the wrong reasons.  I laughed very hard at most of this when I watched it. There is a genuinely weird and chilling sequence at the end though."
0.97   Used & New from: 0.01
3.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (107 customer reviews)

Clerks [VHS] [1995]
13.  Clerks [VHS] [1995] VHS Brian O'Halloran
The list author says:
  "Very clever and funny debut by Kevin Smith.  It is made all the better by a low profile cast and low budget so the story and comedy are the main attraction."
3.74   Used & New from: 0.01
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (63 customer reviews)

Withnail And I [VHS]
14.  Withnail And I [VHS] VHS Richard E. Grant
The list author says:
  "Richard E Grant is superb as perennially drunk, obnoxious, pessimistic but endearingly funny Withnail.  I really like Richard Griffiths and he is superb as Uncle Monty.  Paul McGann is good too."
2.94   Used & New from: 0.01
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (206 customer reviews) | 2 customer discussions

Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas [VHS] [1998]
15.  Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas [VHS] [1998] VHS Johnny Depp
The list author says:
  "Ignore the Amazon review, this is very funny.  It may take a number of viewings to grasp every detail of the story, but the best films are those which give you something different each time you watch."
9.99   Used & New from: 0.01
4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (90 customer reviews)

Eddie Izzard: Glorious [VHS]
16.  Eddie Izzard: Glorious [VHS] VHS Eddie Izzard
The list author says:
  "Very funny observational gags.  They sat art imitates nature, well, so does comedy."
1.80   Used & New from: 0.01
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (31 customer reviews)
