After some Googling I found one movie that seems to be pretty much like you described it: Drop Dead Fred. "A young woman finds her already unstable life rocked by the presence of a rambunctious imaginary friend from childhood."

@LaurentPireyn highlights a good example of their improvisation in the "lock it up!" banter over on IMDb, but there is more out there. There are a number of sources in which Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson speak to their methods of improvisation and their freedom to do so. One mentions how they "rehearsed improvisational lines over games of backgammon or ...
I believe this is film called "What did you do in the war, daddy?". It was a war comedy directed by Blake Edwards (who directed Breakfast at Tiffany's along with the original Pink Panther films) and was released in 1966 through United Artists (which later was purchased my MGM, thus why it would be on the MGM channel). The entire film concerns Charlie ...

Not a definitive answer, but perhaps a clue can be found in this interview with Michael Richards where he claims that the version of events in Man on the Moon was not correct. Three excerpts: Richards: Yeah, and in the movie, "Man in the Moon," that's not correct. That's not how it happened because the network didn't really know about it either. No ...

Aussie Brendon Burns has a routine called "Steve Irwin's Death" on his album The Thinking Man's Idiot. He had a Comedy Central special in 2009. There are some videos here - don't think your routine is there but you may recognize the comic.
It's important to bear in mind that although Mike Myers' character is under the mistaken belief that his fiancee/wife, Harriet, is hiding the fact that she is an axe-murderer, what Harriet is really trying to hide is her shame that, as she believes, she has been dumped by all of her many previous fiancees (who, in fact, have actually been murdered - they ...
Wild guess, it might be National Lampoon's Disco Beaver from Outer Space, which was on HBO in 1978. The vignettes were supposedly someone switching channels between various shows. Sometimes the viewer would make audible comments, like "Quick! Change the channel before the commercial starts!"
In deciding whether the film was originally planned as a comedy you might look, for instance at the names of the Director, the screenwriter, and the cast. How many films did Peter Sellers make which were not comedies, for instance? His entire reputation was in comedy, from the time of his earliest beginnings in radio with 'The Goon Show'. Blake Edwards was ...
