Just curious. The funniest one I've ever seen was a production of Midsummer Night's Dream in London. Can't even remember who did it! I remember laughing so hard though!

"Bad Play" at Edinburgh Fringe years ago (maybe 2006?). So funny.

Another vote for The Play That Goes Wrong - just brilliant.

The Book of Mormon was amazing

The Menopause Monologues

I came on to say The Play That Goes Wrong. It was brilliant. Book of Mormon is also fantastic (but not for the easily offended).

I saw "The Knowledge" this week, in its limited run. I laughed a lot!

Also some years ago, Zipp - 100 musicals in 90 minutes by Gyles Brandreth was incredibly funny. "Andrew Lloyd Webber was a genius - he could write a musical about any boring subject, such as cats! He could have written one called: Socks."

Absolutely 100% The Play That Goes Wrong. Brilliant!!!

Avenue Q. Does that count as a play? It was brilliant!!

One Man Two Governors with James Cordon. I don't think I have ever laughed so much in my life.

Also the comedy version of The 39 Steps was hilarious

Noises Off. Seen several different productions and its always been great.

Noises Off - absolutely hilarious. Side splitting laughter from start go finish, I can't recommend it enough!

The Play That Goes Wrong had me laughing so much my shoulders were shaking and I stopped making noises. It was absolutely hilarious.

Avenue Q is bloody brilliant also

Peter Pan Goes Wrong and the Book of Mormon.

The Play That Goes Wrong, by a country mile.

Peter Pan Goes Wrong was on tv. DS laughed so much he couldn't walk.

Moanyoldcow Fri 06-Oct-17 14:22:15

I'm another 'The Play that Goes Wrong'.

I also saw a superb production of 'The Canterbury Tales' with actors playing folk instruments. I nearly fell off my seat i laughed so much.

EssexGurl Fri 06-Oct-17 14:24:12

The Play That Goes Wrong. We went after seeing Peter Pan on tv. The real play was even better.

One Man Two Guvnors. James Corden was amazing.

Can't make up my mind over which was better.

Now want to see the bank robbery one.

Or any Martin McDonagh
