Allow me to recommend some obvious things that you have probably already considered:

If you like fantasy novels, the Discworld series is a must read. For the most part, each book can be read independently of the others, so there's no need to worry about reading them in order.

If you don't mind reading comics, you can also give The Order of the Stick a go. It's a Dungeons and Dragons themed webcomic with no fourth wall, so hilarity usually ensues. Unlike Discworld, it does stick to a continuous story, so it's probably a good idea to start reading from the beginning.

As for movies/television, I don't think I've ever seen anything in which Rowan Atkinson plays that wasn't funny. Even when he's in a more serious role (such as in Keeping Mum) he manages to take the funny up a notch or two.

The Pink Panther is also worth watching (at least the most recent two (I haven't seen any of the older ones, so I can't make recommendations one way or the other)).
What is this talk of release? I do not release software. My software escapes leaving a bloody trail of designers and quality assurance people in its wake.
