Comedy Is … Nice Work If You Can Get It

There was a time in the late 1990s when I would watch cable television into the small hours of the night. And more often than not, I was watching The Paramount Comedy Channel.

Home to an eclectic mix of British, American, and Australian sitcoms, sketch shows, stand up, and panel shows – the channel’s strap-line is burned into my brain.

Comedy. Is. Paramount.

This is a pilot episode for a podcast I want to make. The idea is to use a show from the line-up of The Paramount Comedy Channel as a springboard to look at the history and culture of television comedy, and explore what these shows mean to me on a personal level.

I’m not sure about my music choices at the moment, so the next one may feel and sound a lot different.

But I thought if I uploaded this, it would make me do more.
