Welcome to the formal opening of the new BBC Comedy website. Thankyou for joining us on this momentous occasion. Now, silence please, and arise for... Flight of the Conchords!

Thanks to Jemaine and Bret for opening the site - look out for more from them here on the Comedy Blog later in the week.

So then - what's new? Read on to find out.

Ch-ch-ch-changesComedy homepages old and newWe've had a bit over a makeover, obviously. But the changes aren't only cosmetic - it should now be much easier for you to find and share all the funny stuff we're sticking up. Here's a quick overview of the sections:

The homepage

Now you can find our most watched and most recommended videos - whether they're classic programme clips or original web-exclusives - right from the homepage.

Clips and Browse

The Clips page is where you can find all the newest videos, where you can easily sort between web-exclusive and programme archive clips in our enormous (sorry, don't mean to boast, but it is big) library of videos. There's even an RSS feed you can subscribe to, if you're that way inclined.

If you're looking for something in particular or you just feel like delving into our library of clips, use the Browse section to navigate through all of our shows alphabetically. You might be surprised what you can find.


Collections are a great way to explore our archive of clips from classic BBC comedy programmes, where you can discover shows you may have missed and revisit old favourites. Even better, our collection of collections is growing all the time - and now includes playlists from comedians who have picked their favourite moments from the BBC archive and the Comedy website.


You're reading it. Right now. To be honest, this isn't changing much. We'll continue to bring you behind-the-scenes info from new shows, preview clips and special features - as well as exclusive funny stuff like the recently-activated Angelos Epithemiou's Webcam.

Elsewhere on the web

BBC Comedy isn't just here on bbc.co.uk. You can follow us on Twitter, 'Like' us on Facebook, subscribe to our channel on YouTube, and enjoy more behind-the-scenes photos on Flickr.

Unusually for a website relaunch, we hope you find plenty to laugh about. There's loads of exciting stuff coming up, including new exclusives from Doc Brown, Reginald D Hunter... and Scroobius Pip?!
