    is it just me or does america generally produce far superior comedy than the uk? and the reputation that our jokes are the best in the world is just something we say and nobody else in the world agrees with except for really unfunny countries like germany.

    fucking what? english humour is sooo much more complex and funny as opposed a fatty on a tiny motor cycle, i dont find one recent series (scrubs etc etc) funny at all and the stand up is known to be poor...the american office is wack....

    Well that statement is good old english humour in itself

    cmon seriously, american comedys have to dub a studio laugh after the jokes so we know they are jokes.......look at the difference between the office (uk) and the us version for example.....

    although saying that.....i like the old skool black comedians like bernie mack.....but i also like bernard manning.

    please explain how english humour is so complex, british stand-ups barely have a personality between them, american stand-up is a lot more real i found and better because of it, jokes about our english bastard money and some guy called chad hogan are funny but not exactly keeping it real and hardly what i would call complex either. im obviously not on about shit like scrubs, bringing up that is like me saying that the uk isn't funny at all because of james corden. south park and american dad are funnier than any uk sitcom over the past 10 years i can think of especially because of the number of episodes. the office, inbetweeners, extras being the best off the top of my head.

    Fair play though, big bang theory is pretty funny once you get into it. Hated it at first but it's grown on me. How I met your mother isn't bad either. However they will never compare to the genius that is Chris Morris.

    Who cares...

    I mean who really fucking cares?

    It seems to me you have something to prove on behalf of America on a british d&b forum of all places...

    Which, ironically, is fucking hillarious.

    the reason is because i have seen too much american stuff lately and i now hate pretty much every british comedian, just had russell howard on tv for a few minutes and how the fuck is this guy considered funny? not bigging up america just reckon the uk standard isn't anything like its cracked up to be.

    If you base the british sense of humour on what you see on t.v & what "personality stand-up comedians have between them", you're missing the point...

    The scottish one has a point.

    Check out Frankie Boyles stand-up...

    Thats not the point either, but seen as you're on a really poor troll ting...

    You know...

    i wasn't basing the entire countries humour on it that was just a broad title, im saying the standard of comedy on tv is pretty shit these days. no person here has explained how british comedy is so good atm yet im a troll, you're all getting too comfortable watching wank like russell howard you need to wake up and realise that its mostly rubbish.

    Again the scottish one has a point.

    Watch Jim Jeffries.

    Then cross him with Frankie Boyle.

    Then, for my money, you have the "mainstream" epitome of what I would call the british sense of humour.

    Offensive as fuck, but very cleverly put together, to break it right down...
