"The Goon Show" when I first heard it - but I hear it now and I am baffled. Why did we think it was hilarious. Humour is very hard to analyse.

I LOVE Morecambe & Wise. The Andre Previn sketch is possibly my all time favourite funny bit.

Also Yes Minister, Blackadder, Phoenix Nights. On radio, Cabin Pressure and I'm Sorry I haven't a Clue.

Blackadder (as per Meow) - probably my all time favourite.

Spaced, Fawlty Towers, Thick Of It, The Day Today (Chris Morris is a genius)

Blackadder - love it
Fawlty Towers - love it.

Given the above, I don't get why I dislike Only Fools and Horses so very much.

Ash786 is an unknown quantity at this point
Default Re: Brit Humour

In no particular order, as below

- Blackadder 2, 3 and 4 only
- "Flowery Twats"
- Brass Eye


Broadening in out, film wise my all time fave brit com would have to be "the Ladykillers", the original not the remake.

And anything with Terry Thomas - "hard cheese old boy!"

All M&W shows are just so funny as well.
