Many of the above. Blackadder is probably my favorite, although Fawlty Towers comes the closest to perfection of situation, writing, and performance from my POV.

Don't forget Absolutely Fabulous!

Anybody watched Vicious? Jacoby and McKellen are very funny in it.

I admit that I haven't seen much British comedy, but I deeply enjoy Ricky Gervais' "Derek" -- that show is great.

RE: British Comedies, what's your favorite?
I have liked all the British comedies I've seen, which is only a small handful:

TV shows: Monty Python and Benny Hill

Movies: Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Mr. Bean, Shaun of the Dead, anything with Peter Sellers in it (most of these weren't British, but I believe he was)

I suppose the two Beatles movies (A Hard Day's Night and Help) were also British comedies, and I liked them as well.

LOVED Vicious! (Blackadder and Monty Python are a given)
