In a year where the majority of us sat at home and stared at the wall, there are a select few that sat at home and actually did something productive.

With live comedy not an option for a large chunk of the year, there are a few artistes who kept Whatsapp groups buzzing with sketches on everything from Love Island to the Immaculate Conception (the two things that occupy the minds of Irish people approx. 98% of the time, let's be honest with ourselves).

It was hard to narrow it down to just twelve sketches, and not to state the obvious or anything but each person on this list is funny all year round, not just during their designated month.

There'll be some you've probably seen shared a million times, some you might not yet have discovered but hopefully they'll all squeeze a lil festive chuckle out of you.

Find somewhere comfy, hijack any Christmas chocolate that's still lying around and sit back and enjoy twelve of our favourite comedy sketches from 2021.
