Seeking a U.S. breakthrough, A&M Records held Black's second album, Comedy, back from release until a re-recorded 1989 version of his U.K. hit "Wonderful Life" could be added as the leadoff track. There is also a remixed version of the U.K. hit "Sweetest Smile," which, like "Wonderful Life," previously appeared on Black's debut album, Wonderful Life. Also included were the more recent U.K. chart singles "The Big One" and "Now You're Gone." All of which means that, in its U.S. version at least, Comedy was almost more of a hits compilation than a formal second album. That, however, lent it a certain consistency, and in its newer songs, the album showed Black moving away from the cocktail jazz and doomy lyrics of his debut and toward a more eclectic sound, as well as lighter, more romantic sentiments.

Filmmakers Robert Townsend and Quincy Newell examine the history of African-American comedy from the black face “minstrel shows” of a bygone age to the politically and socially charged humor of Richard Pryor and Dick Gregory, to the corporate-influenced Def Jams and Comedy Kings that dominate today. Featuring a lineup of scholars, politicians, critics and comedy legends including Bill Cosby, Chris Rock, Keenan Ivory Wayans and Eddie Griffin, this documentary is inspired by author Darryl Littleton’s book “Black Comedians on Black Comedy.”

Starring Catherine Tate, Iain Glen, Katharina Thalbach, Nigel Betts, Brittany Ashworth

Set during the throes of WWII, MRS RATCLIFFE'S REVOLUTION tells the story of a family from Yorkshire who move to East Germany in pursuit of the communist dream. There, they discover a nightmare of rationing, censorship, paranoia, and bureaucratic oppression–a far cry from the Marxist utopia they had envisaged. Mr Ratcliffe, head of the local Communist Party, pushes forward to realise his family's dreams, while his two young daughters vie for his attention–one by rebelling against his political beliefs; the other by adopting an increasingly pro-Stalinist stance. Throughout all this, Mrs Ratcliffe has remained relatively silent, suppressing any doubts she may have had for the sake of familial harmony. But the time has come for her to take a stand and reign in her dysfunctional family. Based on true events, this black comedy shows what happens when reality gets in the way of idealism.

The third series of The League of Gentlemen takes the portmanteau horror approach of their Christmas special and extends it daringly across the entire six episodes. Here, each half-hour installment is a self-contained story featuring various familiar and less well-known inhabitants of Britain's most accursed town, Royston Vasey. But each individual tale leads–horribly, inevitably–towards a single shocking event, the full circumstances of which are only realized in a final, macabre twist. It's all far too bleak to be called comedy, just too damn funny to be anything else. This is a team that has always defined its own rules, nowhere more boldly than here.

TV comedy series

The League of Gentlemen is a British horror-comedy series that's something like The Wicker Man crossed with The Young Ones (Amazon says 'Monty Python meets Twin Peaks').

The show is set in the depressed northern-England town of Royston Vasey, which is full of wonderful, memorable characters who are by turns sinister, grotesque and pathetic.

Each is played by one of the comedy team the series is named for - the League of Gentlemen (Mark Gatiss, Steve Pemberton, Reece Shearsmith and Jeremy Dyson).

The show is one of the blackest comedies out there. The Gentlemen are experts in taking you out of your comfort zone with bad taste and pathos, then quickly having you rolling around laughing at their cruel and dramatic humour.
