The only British comedy I ever watched was The Young Ones and Benny Hill

I never really watched Monty Phyton, I'm sure I missed out on great stuff! Thank goodness for dvd box sets!

I think British comedy is so entertaining. They are really and always have been slightly mad borderline eccentric, ahead of our time. Some really funny zany stuff and I also love the fact that they are so much more lax regarding censorship than Americans are.

^Yeah, but sometimes I either don't get the humor or they talk too fast and with the accent I don't get the jokes!

It took me years to get some of the jokes on Benny Hill I mean the physical humor was obvious but the jokes were not

I love it. I have British friends and have been over the pond so maybe I can follow the accents and language easier. I can't get enough of it!

Fawlty Towers
Father Ted
One Foot In The Grave and although I think its quite not as funny as the first three......
Two Pints of Lager And A packet of Crisps. The 8th series of this has just ended and the viewers were asked to vote for which girl the character Gaz should choose. I think the reason why I enjoy it so much is because the characters are the same age as me and so you can relate to them and also they live in a tiny working class town whereby there's not a lot to do, just like myself. Therefore they tend to get up to crazy stuff to occupy their time. Many people say that it's humour is vulgar. On Wikepedia they called it's format was scattalogical or screwball similar to American Pie but this type of humour is not what I like best about it. This kind of humour is what you get from Gaz and Donna, but I think the funniest character is Louise who is similar to Pheobie in Friends just because she comes out of the unpredictable lines. I also think new character Wesley is very funny. He's very similar to Jonny who they killed off in the last series saying he was eaten by a shark

There is another comedy on BBC3 that has a similar humour to Two Pints called Coming Of Age but that is shit. I saw an episode last week and its possibly the worst comedy I've ever seen. Annoying characters, predictable jokes, shit acting. I wish they finish this programme with all the characters being eaten by a shark

Comedy starring the very humourous Lee Mack 'Worst Week of My Life' is getting an American remake, called 'Worst Week', which doesn't look as good. Starring Red from That 70's Show as the father in law.

To me sometimes British humour seems a lot more effortless than American, like they're not trying as hard or stooping as low for laughs...
