    I grew up with Monty Python, Fawlty Towers, Mr. Bean, Keeping Up Appearances, and now have seen the first 5 episodes of Red Dwarf. It's different and ya have to stay on top of the accent. Lots of sarcasm / dry humour!

    Monty Python! Young Ones, Benny Hill, Wallace & Grommit.. been a big fan of British humor fer quite some time now..
    Dr. Who, while usually not too funny is still very entertaining.

    Oh yeah, and Ali G IS in da houuuuse...

    Haha I forgot all about Mr. Bean. And BlackAdder was great too although my preference on that show is series 3, BlackAdder Goes Forth. I believe thats the one where they were in WWII.

    Another one that I have seen a few episodes of that I liked but cant seem to find anywhere is called Hero.

    There is another one that my parents used to love called Are You Being Served which is also pretty funny.
    There are only 2 infinite things... the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not too sure about the universe.

    I was introduced to British comedy from late night TV screenings of the classic Ealing Studio films like "The Lavender Hill Mob", "Kind Hearts and Coronets" and the "Carry-On" series, "Morgan: a suitable case for treatment" as well as the radio classics like Spike Milligan's "Goon Show", recordings of "Beyond the Fringe", films by Peter Cook and Dudley Moore. TV also brought us "Monty Python's Flying Circus", "Dad's Army", "Are You Being Served" "Allo! Allo!", "Benny Hill"... you name it.

    PBS and BBC America are favorite stations because of the comedy material.
    Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.

    "Benny Hill", "Wallace & Grommit", "Allo! Allo!", and "Last of the Summer Wine" are some of my favorites. The one I miss though is "Allo! All"

    Monty Python is da Bomb. Faulty Towers is hillarious.

    Heck, I enjoy almost ALL forms of humor. The only kind I don't like is "uncomfortable humor," like in Meet the Parents.
