Comedy Family Tree

Here’s a comedy family tree that shows all the spiritual descendants of two British comedy television shows: At Last the 1948 Show (whose cast included John Cleese, Graham Chapman and Marty Feldman) and Do Not Adjust Your Set (whose cast included Michael Palin, Terry Jones and Eric Idle) .Their influences can be traced from these two TV series you might not have heard of all the way to South Park: Bigger, Longer and Uncut.
