As for the League of Gentlemen being disturbing, what about The Mighty Boosh's nightmare creations like 'Mister Susan', 'Milky Joe' and 'Old Greg'!?


League of Gentlemen feels like a sticky, sweaty version of a nightmare reality whereas the Mighty Boosh's characters are too silly to set my teeth on edge. I liked the series but I really love the stage show.

Although, I prefer the British Office the advantage of the Amercian one is I can watch it the whole way through. Ricky Gervais plays the part too well and I often have to turn over because I'm cringeing too much. I just want him to shut up.

One show I haven't seen mentioned here is "The Royle Family" - a show about a lower-middle-class Manchester family who mostly just sit around watching TV. No audience, no laugh track, one camera. Makes me laugh like an idiot.

Eddi Izzard is always a guaranteed laugh. I love how he mixes history with humor...I'll sit through an entire show and laugh my head off from beginning to end.

I didn't find any of that funny, but I couldn't get enough of Ab Fab. Perhaps it is because I know women like Eddina, and Pattsie in the US.
When Ken Dodd refers to a vest does he mean undershirt? I wish I knew where to buy pink tails.

I always liked "Are You Being Served" and all the Dr. Who episodes. Lots of good, British fun there!

John Inman, the star of Are You Being Served? died in the last couple of weeks.

Dr Who - how could you not love a show where tin cans with toilet plunger extremities were evil Earth threatening aliens?

As a yank, I predict that every surname will be a slang for genitalia by the end of the century.
How's that for dry?

Check out http://musicalfruitcake.com - the song I posted for today is "I'm Going to Spend My Christmas With a Dalek" (thanks to a suggestion from Kimmo).
Never criticize someone else until you have walked a mile in their shoes. Then, when you do criticize them, you will be a mile away from them and you will have their shoes.

Hey Kregg
Did I show you my juggling clubs, my old hat, or my new shoes.

Totally agree, Louis.

I love Dr Who.

It wasn't a criticism.

I love Doctor Who too. Take a look at what I built in my shed back in 2005:

And here's how I did it:

The US show House has me in stitches, Hugh Laurie is fantastic and is so funny in every show. I don't know if it is meant to be funny in the US or if it is just Hugh being Hugh.

As for Python it is pant wettingly funny, you just need the right bits. Satire doesn't do the temporal dance too well. Dead parrots on the other hand...

Kimmo, you're a man after my own heart! Did you get a recording in there that screams "EXTERMINATE, EXTERMINATE" whenever anyone walks near it?

I had to laugh when on one of the new Dr. Who episodes, the Daleks referred to the elimination of Cybermen as "pest control" Smile

I'm sorry to hear that John Inman died. I guess Mr. Humphries is now able to say "I'm Free Captain Peacock!" He will be missed. Smile

Better than that - it's a fully functional prop equipped with wheelchair motors, a water cannon exterminator and a voice modulator. The operator climbs inside and wears a headset mic which converts everything they say into Dalek-speak.

Halloween is great fun - although My 3 boys and I spend most of our time fighting over who gets to drive next!

Getting the humor or sarcasm of posts here on the Café is different than watching shows on the screen. Smilies can help.

I don't watch much TV nowadays. Used to anjoy "Absolutely Fabulous", "The Benny Hill Show", "Mr. Bean", the older "Dr. Who" and Monty Python humor.

How about other sites on either side of the Atlantic? Anyone have comments on Mexican or Canadian humour? Or Scandanavian? Italian?

Just checking.

John, It's a well known fact, Canadians have no sense of humor.

That explains why our comedians all move to the US--I should have thought of that!
