I believe, there is no need to introduce this series, right? :-) I enjoyed the first three volumes and some others in this series.
Check Xanth series at Amazon.com
Skeeve, the apprentice magician and his scaly mentor, Aahz and ex-assassin Tanda overcome various "myth-adventures" :-) This series is fun.
Maybe not quite a comic fantasy but there is enough humorous undertone.
Daimbert is a wizard but not good at it. He becomes Royal Wizard in the kingdom of Yurt and there are always troubles... even in such a small kingdom. Again, not quite a comic fantasy but humorous nonetheless.
