They needed less SNL on there for sure, I might be biased but I think British comedy is definitely best. The Monty Python crew are the godfathers of comedy so they should be number one. Am very disappointed they missed out the Lumberjack Song. Should`ve included some from before Monty Python formed, like some sketches from the Frost Report and Marty.

Also agree with tupper- the fast show, not the 9 o`clock news and spitting image would`ve been great, and much better than half the SNL stuff

Hey was the fish slapping dance from Monty Python on there? I might have missed it and am just wayyyy to lazy to go back and check it again...

Ah, well... some of them made me laugh regardless :P

I had a great time watching these skits again! I loved Kids in the Hall and Monty Python, but I adamantly DISAGREE that the Dead Parrot sketch is the Greatest Comedy Sketch of All Time. Classic for sure, but not greatest of all.

For one thing, where was In Living Color? Jim Carey`s Vera DeMilo and the Jamacians with 80 jobs? Now that was funny sh*t!

Two sketches from the dreadful French and Saunders and nothing from the Fast Show, Spitting Image or Not the Nine O`Clock News.

A load of bollocks.

Lmfao. I love the Richard Pryor/Chevy Chase one.

"DEAD Honkey!" (I`m sure I spelled that wrong. It`s okay, I know I fail.)

Classic.

Monty Python deserve the number one spot. I might have chosen Ministry of Silly Walks but Dead Parrot is a classic too.

I like the list but they still are missing some of the classics.... simma down na from SNL. Homie dont play that. Those are all cult classics. Or how about the three snaps and a twist from in living color?

I was going to be disappointed if "Who`s on First" didn`t make it. That one`s a classic.

SNL can be funny, but not as much as the people who wrote this list thought.
