In choosing films for the Comedy option, some of the following questions may prove useful:
1. Are the films part of a series (such as “Carry On”) or one-off productions?
2. What kinds of comedy are they. For example, are they in the farce or spoof sub-genres or are they subtle comedies of manners?
3. How far are the films vehicles for star comic performers (such as Norman Wisdom, Rowan Atkinson)?
4. Do the films extend from another medium, such as television?
5. Are the films live action or animation?
The following is a list of comedy films that have been included on previous versions of the AS Film specification:
