Give the Rode video mic a shot. A lot of people like to run that setup. As rodi stated, it's probably a good enough set up for filming comedy skits.
I currently shoot with a Zoom H4n with a Rode NTG-2 microphone and Rode D Power Plug. It's a bit much for run-and-gun, but I'm pretty happy with the results for the price. I still have to clean up my audio in Soundtrack Pro though.
