About The British Comedy Guide
Welcome to The British Comedy Guide (aka BCG / Comedy.co.uk), a vast reference website devoted to British comedy, both past and present. Created and run by fans for fans, this site contains hundreds of thousands of pages packed full of information, opinion and detail, plus plenty to entertain: to read, hear and watch.
We aim to be a definitive guide to every British film, television and radio comedy to have been produced, and provide comprehensive coverage of every live comedy event across the country. It'll take a while to get there, but we like to dream big!
Here are just a small selection of the things you can find on this website:
We'd like to thank you for visiting The British Comedy Guide. We hope you find our site useful and interesting, and will come back as we continue to add new features.

The British Comedy Guide started life in 2003 as a small website called The British Sitcom Guide, consisting of a few brief pages about key sitcoms such as Fawlty Towers and Blackadder. The site has grown in the decade since, becoming the most-visited website in the world about British comedy.
The BCG is owned and run by founder Mark and co-editor Aaron, who heads up all archive comedy coverage. However, they do not work alone, valuing the assistance of a group of regular volunteer contributors, lead by Ian, the main curator of our TV & radio schedule.
