Before Hugh Laurie was House and before Stephen Fry was Wilde, even before they were Jeeves & Wooster, Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie wrote and starred in their own inimitable sketch comedy series on the BBC. Fry and Laurie explored a seemingly inexhaustible list of subjects with a delicious turn of phrase and elaborate wordplay. The hilarity included regular acts such as not- so-super spy Tony Mercheson and his boss Control, yuppies John and Peter, as well as the concluding cocktail recipe to the accompaniment of Mr. Music with plenty of Vox Pops. With four brilliant seasons of great satire, comic genius and hilarious use of language, Fry and Laurie are definitely at the top of the comedy tree.
