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.
