Hi, I'm Mark, Founder and Editor of this website.

I've been running BCG since the early 2000s and over the last 10 years it has turned from being a very part time tiny hobby to something that's taken over my life a bit.

My favourite British comedy of all time is Fawlty Towers - I was given the show on VHS when I was young and it was a total revelation. I'd never seen anything properly hilarious before. I instantly became a comedy fan and began the process of seeking out other sitcoms straight away. After a while, I decided to try and catalogue things... and eventually that list became this website (obviously not all the guides you see on the site now are written by me though - a brilliant team of contributors help curate a lot of the content nowadays).

I've got just soooo many favourite shows I can't possibly list them all here. I like to think I've got a broad range of tastes - I love everything from mainstream sitcoms like Not Going Out to cult stuff like Garth Marenghi's Darkplace. Similarly, live comedy wise, I'd equally happy watching Michael McIntyre and Tony Law.

Obviously I'm a bit of a comedy geek, but I do have other interests: I also love motor racing, mountain biking, poker and squash. Not sure why I've added this paragraph - it makes this look like a dating profile now.

If you've got any questions or feedback about the site - or if you would like to go on an underwhelming date - you can email me via
