There's no complete DVD set of the Goodies yet! It burns me up inside.

I did see Graham and Tim at the Theb a couple years ago, though.

Really? Nice one!

I've been spending time watching Kenny clips on Youtube. Not bad, not bad, this thread is not too bad....

Hey Carek your avatar is a Mighty Boosh reference eh?

Loving the Boosh right now...just waiting for my series 3 dvd to come in the post.

Blackadder series 2 is the best of all of them.

Didn't find Little Britain funny at all.

Spaced is great.

Black Books definately a winner.

If anyone is a fan of The Young Ones, may I recommend Guesthouse Paradiso? And when I say 'recommend', I mean, don't hate me when it makes you sick It's Rik's "runny bottom" x 23894.

I love British comedies.
"Hello, IT?"

Well we do in NZ. Our tv consists mostly of British drama and comedy, American drama, comedy and reality, Australian soaps, comedy etc. and even a little NZ content.

We talk about British comedy, American comedy and even New Zealand comedy (which has always been shit until Flight of the Conchords went to America and made a show.)

Some American comedies are great like How I Met Your Mother and 30 Rock... and then there's all those sitcoms with cutesy nauseating children and stupid fat guys with hot wives.

Oi, it's better to go with the Bottom series or liveshows. Guesthouse Paradiso was rather disappointing, but maybe that was because most of the jokes were pulled from the series.

So yeah:
Young Ones
Bottom
AbFab
Black Books
Blackadder
Little Britain
Two Pints of Lager...

and the list goes on...

Monty Python and Gervais/Merchant stuff are the only things I've found funny in British comedy.

two of my favourites

YouTube - Monty Python - Kilimanjaro Expedition

starts 10 seconds in.

YouTube - salad days

starts one minute in if you're an impatient bastard.

laughed non-stop for about two minutes watching it.

Why yes it is! I've been "Booshed" of late! Hope Noel Fielding has much success in LA negotiating more Boosh-style entertainment! Thankfully it's the kind of stuff you can watch repeatedly and it gets funnier & funnier!

Little Britain is hit or miss for me.. .some of it I find amusing, some not so much. Catherine Tate's another hit or miss. AbFab, Father Ted, My Family, Black Books, French & Saunders, Blackadder, Waiting for God & Mr. Bean are all hits. Honorable mention for Coupling (sooo much better than the watered down 'Friends'!), Monty Python and going waaay back, Are You Being Served?
