comedy-festival-2014It seems like it was just yesterday that 7Days began bringing us the laughs on Friday nights. However, it’s been 5 years!

And I almost forgot, another repeat of the Vicar of Dibley Easter Special at 20 past midnight (Saturday AM).

As far as movies go TV2 has a movie marathon all day while TV One kicks off with Mary Poppins this morning.
