Little Britain is a good one but I've only seen a couple episodes between BBC on my cable network and You Tube

Nothing to do with subtlety, just personal taste. I just find Gervais annoying in anything, anyway.

That's okay because every episode is exactly the same.

That is sig material, although it's such a good post that I think sigging it would detract from how great it is.

I love almost everything coming from Britain (Music, Films etc.)

I really like Manchild, Spaced and all the Simon Pegg stuff. As so much more!

Does anyone else have this book? I can't wait for the Boosh to make it big in the US.

I heard from Noel Fielding's agent that he and Julian Barratt will be coming to the US this summer.

Little Britain is absolutely horrific.

However, I am very partial to -
The Day Today & Brass Eye (the pinacle of British comedy, both perhaps a bit dated now, but nothing can beat it for political satire.)
The Mighty Boosh
Nighty Night (if you don't get dark stuff, don't even bother trying. You'd be deeply offended)
Absolutely Fabulous (absolutely of course)
French & Saunders (earlier stuff, particularly the Titanic sketch)
A Bit of Fry & Laurie (m'colleague. Need I say more?)
Black Books

Hmm, have probably forgotten quite a few but those are the best off the top of my head.
