How about some Dean Cundey? I’m embarrassed to admit, but I only learnt through Home Again who he is. I liked how this candy of a film looked, so I googled him.

 

The whole film has this glorious warm, sunlit look, with touches of pinkiness:

I always thought the Monty Python lads did a marvellous job on their films, The Holy Grail and Life of Brian in particular were fantastic because they felt exactly like a period film should. You never felt like you were in a quote/unquote "comedy", and it made them so much more engrossing.

For a more modern example, I thought Michael Grady's work on "Easy A" was just jaw-droppingly gorgeous. I'm not sure I've ever seen a comedy look so pretty (aside from, perhaps, "Manhattan").

I liked Gerald Hirschfeld's work on "Young Frankenstein" and "My Favorite Year", Charles Lang's work on "Some Like It Hot", and Dean Cundey's work on the "Back to the Future" movies. One that I thought was surprisingly good/beautiful was "The Front Page", cinematography by Jordan S. Cronenweth.

The Big Lebowski, Raising Arizona and Terry Gilliam's Brazil is pretty funny in places (and looks great)

I always admired Fred Schulers work on ARTHUR in 1981.

It's mostly this scene...

with the campy over acting, and can just imagining the 2 PMP cars on flat dollies being slid around by crew and actor's liberal use of the cabins to play out the scene.  Also one of my favorite moments is the British chap and captain's cap dude in the green wagon with the actors bouncing up and down on their seats and crew jiggling the rig just so...

Heh, I thought you might be talking about the airplane sequence with Buddy Hacket and Mickey Rooney.

Roger Deakins has done a nice job with some of the Coen bros comedies.
