What are some funny British comedy shows that I can watch on YouTube?

I love comedy dearly and I would like to know of some more shows that I can watch. I am American, but I don't much like American humor. My sense of humor is very British so those are the shows I like to watch more. I need it to be shows that are on YouTube because I am currently living in Japan and I can't stream video from sites like Netflix, Hulu, etc.

I already watch:

Qi, Grandma's House, 8 out of 10 Cats, Would I Lie to You?, Mock the Week, Nevermind the Buzzcocks, That Mitchell and Webb Look and several other things.

Please give suggestions!

Thanks!

    You have similar taste in comedy to me. I will list some shows

    Can you watch 4OD's youtube channel in Japan? On there, I recommend The Weekenders, Black Books, Father Ted, The IT Crowd, Trigger Happy TV, Star Stories, Vic Reeves' Big Night Out, and Peep Show.

    Also, The Museum of Curiosity is good- a little like QI without the quiz element.

    I didn't really enjoy the Mighty Boosh that much either. What type of comedy are you looking for? I've always loved Outnumbered, and a few older ones are One Foot in the Grave, Porridge, Only Fools and Horses, Fawlty Towers and Open All Hours. The Two Ronnies also features some great sketches, such as the "Four Candles" one. There's always Benidorm, though I find it a bit tacky, it does make me laugh. Miranda is probably funny, starring Miranda Hart, though I've never actually watched it. The Catherine Tate Show is definitely a good one - though it's not aired anymore. I used to watch it when I was little - but only when I was at my Aunt's 'cause it was on at ten, and we either stayed the night or went home at like, 1 in the morning ;) Then there's also Gavin and Stacey, the Vicar of Dibley is one of my favourite T.V shows ever. Lots of funny sitcoms repeat on Gold and Dave in England - I'm not sure about anywhere else. Not Going Out (Lee Mack) is excellent, Little Britain's a classic, I used to watch My Family with - well, my family, The Office (but the original UK version), and The Royle Family is a classic, especially at Christmas time. Shameless is a much ruder comedy, and Mrs Brown's Boys is also rude, though slightly less :) Hope I've given you enough.
