I'm Greg, I was first introduced to UK comedy at about the age of 5 via VHS and UKTV Gold (as it was then known) when I watched Only Fools and Horses and ever since then I have always loved different UK Comedy shows, new and old , both situation comedy and comedy-drama. I have over 150 British Comedy DVDs. I do have a varied mixed comedy taste as I do enjoy light family comedies (e.g. Mr Bean) but also enjoy very course adult humour too (e.g. Jimmy Carr). I love loads and loads of shows ranging from The Office to Miranda, it would take ages to list them all but my two favourite sitcoms are Only Fools & Horses and Fawlty Towers.
For those wondering who's Cat it is in my Avatar - it's my late Cat, Clyde. He was lovely but unfortunately after 15 years, Clyde sadly passed away in 2016 but his picture still remains my avatar as a tribute to him. I've spent many an evening with him on the sofa watching various sitcoms and television shows.
Favorite Stand Up's (in no particular order): Peter Kay, Jimmy Carr, Micky Flanagan, Katherine Ryan, Lee Nelson (Simon Brodkin), Ricky Gervais, Alan Carr, Michael McIntyre, Al Murray "The Pub Landlord", Brendan O' Carroll, Chubby Brown and Jon Richardson, Joe Lycett, Jack Whitehall, Stephen Merchant (even though he's only done 1 tour!), Dave Spikey, Josh Widdicombe.

Outside of Comedy, I do like Music. My favourite band is Madness who'm I've had the pleasure of seeing live 6 times (to date). Other artists I've seen live include Human League, The Stranglers, Hugh Cornwell, ABC, Simply Red, The Specials, Tears For Fears, Elton John (to name but a few). Again, music taste is very varied!
