"Queen and the world of comedy"
Although Queen did put a lot of comedy in some of their video clips and they where known for their tongue in cheek factor. Queen has and have always liked (mostly British) the world of comedy. It's very impressive on how many connections they had/have with the world of comedy. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that all those comedians got Queen, and knew what they stand for and what they really where about,....a lot of rock & fun.
Here is a list of fact, appearances, sketches and songs etc. (if anyone knows some more comedy/Queen connections please add them, thank you); COPY/PASTE links to see youtube clips.
