    CYPHER BONUS. Probably the best Rap Cypher mick take of all. The impressions are spot on especially
    Jay-Z when he says "hold my baby!" as he enters the cypher...

    If Facebook happened in real life, it would be just like this.
    Funny and unnervingly accurate.....

    I didn't really like The State when the show first aired on MTV, but a few years later, my girlfriend had a Best of The State video and I started to see the appeal.

    In Living Color, on the other hand -- I got into that right away. Here we have Calhoun Tubbs. I once woke myself up singing that "ah-haa-ah-aaaaahh" bit. Apropos of what, I haven't a clue. Freaked out the neighbors outside my open window, I know that.

    I seem to remember the Homey D. Clown sketches being funnier than they seem to be today. But, hell, I was eleven.

    Even though I came up in poor or lower middle class black neighborhoods, it was In Living Color that introduced me to some of the finer points of racial politics.

    This sketch is a particular favorite of mine. I think this was the first Wanda sketch, and though I don't have any evidence to back me up, I'm convinced that none of the cast had seen Jamie Foxx in costume before filming. Jim Carrey looks like he's trying not to burst out in laughter and Marlon Wayans' reaction is great, but David Alan Grier... aw, just watch the damn thing.

    The Savage Eye, was a sketch show on RTE ( Irish TV, the only good show they had ), each week dealed with a theme, and it was very critical of politicians/police/priests, and very funny.

    I love The Savage Eye.



    It's to its credit that a lot of it wouldn't travel well

    @TF a lot of it is Irish specific, especially the Pat Kenny stuff, but the moments they take the piss out of are all on youtube anyway

    That's a good point but you really have to have lived through Hector for "Rathú Rathú Rathú" to make you fall off your seat :-)

    I don't know if the channel 4 stuff on YouTube is visible outside the UK, but here's Charlie Brooker's near legendary 'things the Sun has campaigned against' speech.

    Great finds! I'd not heard of some of the Irish stuff! Even though
    its just over the waters from over here. A new comedic insight.

    Right...if people want an exotic eating experience alot of people settle for Chinese or Indian
    food.

    So what do Chinese or Indian people do when they want some exotic food?

    This show was horrible, except for this shining moment when they set Harlan Williams loose. He takes these actors to task.

    I remember that show. Not terribly fondly, mind. There was this:

    I see Norwegian clips have been taken care of, including quite a few I was going to post, so that's good.

    Here's one of my all-time favourite Mitchell and Webb sketches:

    What, no Monkey Dust yet? Yes it's animated, but this was a brilliant and dark comic gem throughout its short three seasons. I couldn't find most of the skits I was looking for, but here are a few 'lighter' pieces for you.
    Still, these are not for the easily offended.

    Hahah! Is that from the new series? God, I love Limmy. Anyone at all is recommended to go through the Relateds for Limmy's Show. One of my favourites:
