What are they?

Whether it's sketch shows, tv series, film, stand up, let's share the laughs. If you can link some videos to your funniest comedy moments then even better.

To my mind, one of the classic pieces of comedy writing - Michaelangelo Meets The Pope - the original one with John Cleese. Also the 'Sperm Scene' from Everything You Wanted To Know About Sex'.

A lot of people might find this old-fashioned now, but it still makes me laugh, Morcambe and Wise making breakfast to the striptease music. A classic.

Mine is another Morecambe & Wise classic; the one with Andre Previn. Not normally one who laughs out loud, but remember crying with laughter when that was first transmitted.
Don't know why but there's a scene in one of the later Pink Panther films (which, overall, were rather weak and disappointing) that also had me in hysterics. It's the one where Sellers dresses up as an old sailor with an inflatable parrot on his shoulder which he has to keep pumping up. Completely silly but for some reason it just sets me off!

Yes, I like that one too when Eric grabs hold of Andre Previn by his shirt after Previn accuses him of playing the wrong notes and speaks a line I'll never forget, "I'm playing the right notes but not necessarily in the right order." My son watched it with me a couple of years ago when they put it on at Christmas, he'd never seen it before and he usually likes the modern comedians of today, but he couldn't stop laughing.

That made me laugh Misty. That was funny.

I oddly found it hilarious when Eric would use his own arm behind the curtain, to make it look like it was a producer/director's arm trying to strangle him. Silly, but very funny.

I also remember the celebrity pantomine-like shows they did, where Ernie struggled to keep a straight face during his lines whilst Eric would play up to it. Classic moments.

Yes I remember them too, and the Christmas specials where Eric and Ernie had the knack of getting serious people to do ridiculous things and love doing it, Glenda Jackson, Shirley Bassey and Angela Ripon. Then the male newsreaders and reporters singing There is nothing like a dame.
It reminds me of Christmases long gone when you didn't have to spend a fortune to have a good time.

Those Morecambe & Wise sketches have been repeated and copied so much since they first appeared that we don't realise, or forget, how original this material was when it first went out. It was all the more remarkable in that they were, essentially, a traditional music hall double act, but (with Eddie Braben) they were able to break completely new ground and produce brilliantly fresh material, the like of which no-one had ever seen before.

As Four Candles has already been mentioned, so I suggest Stuart Lee's Policitical Correctness gone mad standup routine - actually, I've just posted this on another unrelated discussion, but as it's well observed and funny, I'm posting it here too. Be warned though, there is some quite strong profanity:

Monty Python's "Biggus Diccus" scene from Life of Brian.

On TV, it's probably Black Adder's "Great Boo's Up" or the scene from "Head" where Edmund is pretending to be the executed man. The dialogue had me in stitches too;

Baldrick: So why are we putting a bag over his head?
Blackadder: So she'll think it's her husband.
Baldrick: Why? Did he use to wear a bag over his head?

In 'Some Mothers Do 'Ave 'em' there was a scene with Richard Wilson (Victor Meldrew) who fell into a seat and you could tell he was struggling to keep a straight face. Glad they kept it in, as it made the scene even funnier.

I can't find that scene on youtube for the life of me. :-S

I believe a similar thing happened in 'Only Fools 'n Horses' when Del asks Uncle Albert to look surprised when Rodney comes in. When Uncle Albert mistimes it, Del struggles to tell Uncle Albert off as he's trying to suppress his laughter.

Dad's Army: Asleep in the Deep. When they're crawling out of the room through the gap and Hodges is standing in the water moaning and Wilson says 'oh just push off!' and pushes him over into it.

When it comes to Monty Python it's not the most popular sketch but I love the Proust summarising competition.
