I keep saying that my life is like a romantic comedy minus the romance and me just laughing at my own jokes. It seems like the best policy in life is to learn to laugh at yourself or you'll end up crying at everything. This podcast covers everything in life that makes it hilarious, pathetic, tragic, entertaining, and everything else that makes for a good sitcom.

HAPPY MEAN GIRLS DAY!Okay so this week I am so sorry, but it's another tangent of mine.

Also we have an actual mush ...…

Oh my. It has been a week! It seemed like I had people left and right lying or manipulating or bailing on me, like things were kind of all falling apart. But I mean, that's part of the fun, right??

Basically I want to start a movement of supporting and helping make dreams a reality! So of course I am starting off with my own dream. Also a little upda ...…
 
Yes Minister is nominated by Steve for the episode 'Death List'. This highly-acclaimed British sitcom should have a cake-walk into the hall of fame, as long as it doesn't stray close to the edge of the pavement or stand near any windows!

The Games is nominated by Jeffers for a place in the Hall of Fame as a golden example of mockumentary and a high watermark of Australian sitcommery.

Twitter: @SitcomShowdown ...…

Chance in a Million is nominated by Jeffers, who expects this 1980s British disastercom to have a much bigger chance of entering the hall of fame than its title suggests.

I've been Kita-welcome to th ...…
