Ana This parrots dead! (132* d) RE: This parrots dead! 05 Nov 99

Being neither British or US, (NZ actually) I'm in the blessed situation of having both "humour" cultures to compare via TV, whilst belonging to neither. There's a huge difference between the two but I'm at a loss to catagorise them. There seems to be something very bent and whacky about British humour that tickles me (ooh!) in a way that American hasn't yet. I grew up with great dour comedies like "Hancocks half hour" and "Step-toe and Son", and "I Love Lucy" ...waaaah...get my drift? Now I get depressed because I haven't got to see "Red Dwarf" for that scene of virtual reality sex was something else!!!! So the Goon show & Monty Python huh? great stuff - I hear that a "Fish called Wanda" was a bomb in the States? Why was that? Ana
