These are the laughers that have stood the all-important test of time, from the brilliant silliness of of the Marx Brothers to the unrepentant juvenilia of Jim Carrey, the rapid-fire joke-a-thons of Zucker-Abrahams-Zucker to the scabrous political satires of Armando Iannucci. These are the movies that inspired intense guffaws the moment they first hit theatres and are still doing so generations later, and which we’re fairly confident will keep cracking up audiences another century from now. Or maybe not. What we are sure of is that no matter your sense of humour – silly or sophisticated, light or dark, surreal or broad – you’ll find it represented here.
