It's hard to find someone who loves horses, and loves British humour!! Be it Monty Python, Blackadder, Britcoms, Eddie Izzard, etc. I'd like to find someone who does so we can talk! Maybe there is a British comedian you like that I've never heard of, let me know! I'd like to find a few Anglo-philes...
Blackadder is Classic, all the series; Was Listening to the soundtrack of the Meaning of Life the other day, bought for one particular track which upset the Catholic Church (being raised Catholic means such things can have an irresistible attraction :-)); as is Red Dwarf; Fawlty Towers; Not to mention The Good Life, To the Manor Born; Waiting for God; Are you Being Served; The Young Ones;
Yeah I know, some Americans just aren't intelligent enough to get, dry, witty humour from across the pond! Thankfully I was brought up watching Monty Python(edited for a while though), and other British comedians. I'm glad my mother did so! Do you have a particular favorite?
A Fish Called Wanda. I know it seems silly, but I love that movie. None of my friends get it, but I crack up each time I watch it. I'll have to look for those other ones. But I do love Monty Python. My friends and I used to re-enact the Knights Of Nee all the time. Lol
Can you get more anglo-philic than an english man himself? ;)
Unfortuntaly some of the best British comedies never make it to the US screens (Only Fools and Horses, Red Dwarf to name a few). Fortunatly we outgrew Benny Hill a long time ago, although you wouldn't guess it if you've ever seen BBC America!
'The Office' is originally a British comedy series that has been remade over here in the US, however I haven't seen much of wither to make much comments or comparissons. I've seen some other British series that have been remadenfor US audiences - I have to admit that I haven't been too impressed as they seem to dumb down a lot of stuff. It seems that the US broadcasters think the dark Brit Humour would be too much for over here :(
