That's a great point, I've personally taken a lot of inspiration from the Blackadder TV-series, but what I think one should look for in comedy is the character dynamics and story structure rather than the jokes themselves,
and especially in Blackadder the humor comes from the contrast between the snarky and cynical Blackadder and his naive and ditzy friends/servants.

Apropos that, just last night I weirdly dreamt that I met Richard Curtis on a train and was trying to decide whether to tell him I enjoyed Blackadder (or explain that I wasn't all that keen on About Time).
