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 facts,
appearances, sketches and songs etc. My question: does anybody know any other Queen/comedy connection or facts?

Graham Norton sang Bohemian Rhapsody and Fat Bottomed Girls in the Father Ted episode The Mainland.
Tenacious D performed Flash as part of their live set found on The Complete Masterworks DVD.
On the new episode from "Family Guy / Road to Germany" they used
"Battle Theme" from the Queen soundtrack "Flash Gordon", including
Brian Blessed "standby my Hawkmen, dive!!". Great episode, especially
the Mccain / Palin reference ;)
Whole episode ("Battle Theme" from 16 min 45 sec.)
Oh look, there's QZ's very own TROLL appearing again to try to wind us up with his 'superior' views on TCR.
You may feel that you're funny likening TCR to comedy, but in fact YOU are the biggest joke on this ( or amy other) page.
Attention seeking, ass-wiping, childish little spoilt pratt, just to be CLEAR.
