If you like Hugh Laurie, I strongly encourage you to check out the 3rd season of the Black Adder series, Blackadder the Third (1987) and the 4th season, Blackadder Goes Forth (1989), (although IMO, not as good as the 3rd). In the 3rd, Laurie plays Prince George, a foppish, blithering idiot and foil to Rowan Atkinson as Black Adder, his personal butler. British comedy at it's best!!

Screencaps at http://www.hughlauriefaq.com/images/thumbnails.php?album=7. (I googled. I'm not some crazed Hugh fan who tracks his screencaps.)
The full-on Blackadder story is at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blackadder.
