    I am watching "keeping up appearance" right now.

    Hyacinth is so funny. It's not Bucket it's Bouquet! Poor Richard! I love how Daisy still sees her husband as a hunk! It is kinda sweet. I miss "Waiting for God". Diana was so tough and could be so mean but she stood up for people. She and Tom together. lol And poor sad...

    I like my comedy dry

    and well-timed, the English seem to have that down to an art.

    My family and I just love British comedy.

    We recently ordered the Benny Hill and the Avengers series'. They are great to watch and are so funny too.

    Sad news about Rik Mayall today.

    He was our family idol...favourite comedian. The majority of our family nights consisted of a Mayall or Edmondson evening :) brought lots of laughs, bonding and memories to my childhood and teenage years. A very sad loss to a legend gone too soon

    After watching Monty Python

    and seeing all the movies I looked to see more British Comedies. I especially like "My Family". Can only get the first 4 seasons on DVD in the US but I know that there were quite a few more seasons broadcast. Also "Black Adder" was good although I have not seen much of them.

    Making Great Strides Socially

    Growing up, my brother and I would watch Mr. Bean, we would laugh til we cried. Anything with Rowan Atkinson, you know will be good. Years ago, I was a private duty nurse and I took care of an elderly couple, William and Louise. She would watch the Brit Coms on the local public...

    Important safety tip.

    If you are attacked by a person with a banana there are 2 steps you must take. firstly, you must force them to drop the banana, secondly, you eat the banana, thus disarming the attacker. Thankyou. Stay safe. And now for something completely different.

    When a lot of people think of British humour,

    they immediately think of Monty Python. And I love those sketches, don't get me wrong. But I also enjoy the more dry brand of humour. For example, I loved the British version of "The Office", and the dry humour of "The Trip". Does that make me a square? haha

    Monty Python

    Monty Python was my first experience with British humor and I still love to watch it...the Holy Grail, Life of Brian...probably the funniest bit was the "Kamikaze Highlanders". Since then, shows like Ab Fab and Little Britain have been great to see. Another show, not supposed...

    Doc Martin is another good show.

    It's not your usual comedy, but the humor is there minus laugh track.
