    A Bit Of Fry And Laurie

    I was devasted when House ended with Hugh Laurie but then I started watching these older comedy skits and they are funny! I am now a new fan of Stephen Fry as well, and Hugh Laurie is absolutely hysterical in these skits, I can't wait to watch more of them and the Black Adder.

    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

    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...

    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...

    Clever British Humor - I like to think

    that of all the places in the world, the UK has the best sense of humor as it's often proven that British humor is the most clever. I particularly love Blackadder, Red Dwarf, Mr Bean, Only Fools and Horses, Dad's Army, Not The Nine O'Clock News, The Thin Blue Line...
