I think foreigners cannot really start to understand Thailand without some appreciation of 4 aspects of Thai culture. The language, the religion, the music and the comedy. It might not be to your taste and may be difficult to understand, but at least trying to understand the culture so many foreigners claimed to have 'fallen in love with' will only enrich the experience of visiting or living here. Some more traditional Thai films for example look like broken up scenes with not a lot of continuity, but this is an influence from likay the traditional music theatre and this can also be seen in lakorn.

This comedy musical features Yodrak Salakjai luktung superstar and was released  just a year before his death in 2008. We went to his funeral at Wat Rai King, the biggest funeral for an entertainer since Pumpuang in 1992. He recorded more tracks than any other Thai singer, over four thousand. I should add if you are not interested in Thai film please do not bother to make pointless negative comments.

He signed this for me shortly before he passed away, he lived life to the full that's for sure

What about the original Yam Yasothon (love the music) or Pee Mak Phrakanong.  Even dubbed in English is funny as hell!

Best Thai tragic/comedy imo from 2001 directed by Pen Ek Ratanaruang. Can't find the full film but it's on Google play and Amazon prime, we could have asked Yinn of course! Don't forget is one of the songs in this by Surophol. who was shot in 1968.

Just watched this with the mrs, not great but good in parts especially the ending. Mrs says there are some famous comedians in this and I recognized the Dutch guy Walter playing the school teacher. Went to his wedding 20 years ago in Nakom Nowhere, his parents paid for it all including a big bus to take everyone up there from Bkk. Marriage lasted about 6 weeks- she was a bar girl from nana plaza, his parents were not best pleased! He appears at 30.22.

So far so good then loads of film with English subtitles, unlike music which I know far more about, this is quite funny with a football theme
