100 best comedy movies

We count down the 100 best comedy movies as voted for by more than 200 experts from the world of film, TV and comedy



Here's the 100 best comedy movies as chosen by more than 200 people whose job it is to make you laugh.

We spoke to dozens of comedy writers, comedy directors, comic actors and stand-up comedians – including Dan Aykroyd, Richard Curtis, Edgar Wright, Kim Noble, Stephen Merchant, Jo Brand and many, many more – and asked them to share with us their favourite comedy films of all time. Can you guess which film emerged as the number one choice?

UPDATE: Tell us the comedy movie you think should have made the list and we'll print the best ten in a future issue of Time Out magazine. Make your suggestions on our messageboards.

By Tom Huddleston, David Jenkins, Adam Lee Davies, Derek Adams, Edward Lawrenson, Wally Hammond, Ben Walters, Gabriel Tate and Phil Harrison
