Where have all the good times gone?

Hello
I was going to make my first post here a proper review, but due to a heavy week at work I haven't finished the book I'm on at the moment (the Tomalin biography of Samuel Pepys) and I don't think anyone would appreciate a review that went 'good so far'. I will post properly as soon as i finish it.

In the meantime, I thought I would call on all your super powers of recommendation. I've been reading through the recent requests for genres/specific character-types, and I'm incredibly impressed by the breadth of everyone's reading. I was wondering if this would stretch to a slightly unfashionable book type - comedy. I really enjoy books which make me laugh. Or at least chuckle quietly to myself. The good thing about this is that it transcends other genres. I love period classics such as P.G.Wodehouse or Jerome K Jerome, or the contemporary court stories of John Mortimer, as much as modern fantasy such as Terry Pratchett, Stephen Brust and Jasper Fforde. Can anyone add any authors or titles to this list?
Many thanks in advance.
