2013 has been a great year for British Comedy, whether it was Edgar Wright wrapping up his Blood and Cornetto trilogy with The World’s End, to Richard Curtis’ crowd pleasing romantic comedy About Time, British comedy films had a strong year, including several terrific entries from independent filmmakers which proved, yet again, that you don’t need a huge budget to make a good comedy – a good script and great performances usually does the trick just as well.
Here’s a list of 10 great British Comedies from 2013, from the mainstream right through to the more obscure ones you should try to track down if you get the chance.
Note: This list has not been ordered from 10 to 1 since comedy is probably the most subjective of genres. Also check out our ’10 Unmissable British Films’ article here
