The old stand-up comedy film The Funny Farm would be nice.
Since you said "the old stand-up comedy film" I'm guessing you're not referring to the Chevy Chase movie? I love that film, one of his funniest. What's the one you're referring to about?
I believe The Funny Farm was a 1983 directed by Ron Clark (christmas story).
Funny Farm was the C Chase film. After seeing Funny Farm the only part I regreat that was that there should have been something funny on the farm. There wasn't.
OOPS A Christmas Story was Bob Clark. Ron Clark, writer, director of The Funny Farm is a Canadian who was also in Top Gun. Not The Top Gun or A Top Gun just Top Gun. This A and The stuff is getting confusing. Like Bob Clark, Ron Clark and Clark Kent. He was just Super.

I love Funny Farm. Funny without being all in your face about it. I miss old school Chevy Chase.
Yeah, and it was one of those comedies that had a charming down-home small-town feel to it, like Baby Boom, Groundhog Day, or Doc Hollywood. Funny, but also gave you a warm feeling. Or maybe it was just me.
Not only do I miss old school Chevy Chase, I also miss Dusty Bottoms.

Strange is a British television drama series, produced by the independent production company Big Bear Productions for the BBC, which aired on BBC One. It consists of a single one-hour pilot episode screened in March 2002, followed by a series of six one-hour episodes broadcast in the summer of 2003. The paranormal storyline involved a defrocked priest's mission to destroy demons.
All seven episodes of the series were written by Andrew Marshall, a scriptwriter primarily known for his comedy work. It was directed by Joe Ahearne, who had previously been responsible for both writing and directing the World Productions vampire serial Ultraviolet for Channel 4.
The six episodes were shot on location and at Ealing Studios, and filming concluded on 23 December 2002. Filming was split into two blocks; the first (made up of episodes 1, 2 and 5) was directed by Aherne and the second by Simon Massey, who had previously worked on Ballykissangel. Marshall wrote the first regular episode as an introduction to the characters and the scenario, despite having already done so for the pilot. He attributed this to the BBC's policy of not repeating pilots; he had to introduce new viewers who may not have seen the pilot.
James at 15 (later James at 16) which aired during 1977-78. One of the better "coming of age" shows. I was too young to appreciate it when it originally aired, but watched it on A&E in the late '80s. One memorable moment, at least to my sensitive self, was when a friend of James' (Lance "Salem's Lot" Kerwin) had died and the soundtrack played the Simon & Garfunkel song, "Bookends."
