Hi, I'm Mark, Founder and Editor of The British Comedy Guide.
I've been running this website since the early 2000s (for many years it was just a hobby). I'm in my late-20s and live in North Hampshire.
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 funny 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 write a lot of the content nowadays).
I've got just sooo many favourite shows I can't list them all here. But here's a short list, off the top of my head, of other shows I'm a big fan of (in alphabetical order): A Bit Of Fry & Laurie; The Armstrong & Miller Show; Blackadder; Bleak Expectations; Brass Eye; Cabin Pressure; Charlie Brooker's Screenwipe; Drop The Dead Donkey; Early Doors; Garth Marenghi's Darkplace; Green Wing; I'm Alan Partridge; Joking Apart; Lead Balloon; Mock The Week; Monty Python's Flying Circus; That Mitchell And Webb Look; The Morecambe & Wise Show; Not Going Out; One Foot In The Grave; The Office; Outnumbered; Peep Show; Porridge; Teachers; The Thin Blue Line; Trigger Happy TV; The Smoking Room; The Worst Week Of My Life.
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.
You can email me via firstname.lastname@example.org if you've got any questions or feedback about the site... or if you would like to go on an underwhelming date.
