If you like That Mitchell and Webb Look, you should definitely check out Peep Show. It's episodic, rather than sketch comedy, but it's one of the funniest shows on UK TV.

I just put it in my Netflix queue. So it's Mitchell and Webb but in a narrative? Those guys are brilliant; I'll watch anything they do.

On similar British comedy front, ever watch THE IT CROWD? I love that one, too.

The IT Crowd! Brilliant show. Of course I watched it. :)

Peep Show is a sitcom about two roommates (played by Mitchell and Webb) who live in a flat in South London. I think you'll like it. And you'll be amazed at the things UK television can broadcast compared to the US. :)

If you can get Big Train or Smack thePony on Netflix, those are some additional British sketch comedy gems from the last few years.

You should also check out Black Books, co-written by the same guy who did the I.T. Crowd. It has to be one of the best British comedys of all time. Also, check out the Green Wing

Oooh, thanks for the recommend. I'll check 'em out. That said, I can't imagine anything being funnier than PEEP SHOW -- after Mark's recommendation, I burned through every episode of every series in about 3 weeks' time. Hits my dark-funny-bone in pretty much every spot... but I'm excited to give Black Books and Green Wing a shot, too!
