The Comedy Unit or known sometimes as just Comedy Unit is a Scottish company that produces sitcoms, comedy sketches, live shows and other comedy productions. It began life as an in-house BBC department in 1983 under the auspices of Producer Colin Gilbert and became an independent production company in 1996 when Gilbert and business manager April Chamberlain left the BBC.[1]

It was bought by London-based RDF Media Group in 2006[2] which in turn was acquired by Paris based Zodiak Entertainment Group in 2010. The creators of Still Game terminated their connections with the expanded group although the show itself continued as a co-production.
