Subject: RE: BS: greatest written comedy
For kids, Sideways Stories from Wayside School and Wayside School is Falling Down, by Louis Sachar. Although I have to admit that I laughed harder than my son did when I read these books to him (he was seven or eight at the time).

My favorite character was Sammy, the dead rat from the basement (all dressed up in his many layers of raincoats and galoshes).
