British Humour = Someone like Peter Kay. His comedy is so realistic and what normally happens in British families lives

Also Al Murry

I actually love Peter Kay. His comedy like you said, scarily describes our lives! Haha.
Have you see his show at Blackpool or Manchester or something like that. They're actually hilarious.

Yea so British humour is probably just related to what makes our lives "British", sort of making fun of it. ^^

No, never had the chance to go see him live but 'Live at the top of the Tower' was absolutely hilarious! The whole 'Dip Me!!' thing will be remembered forever!

i don't really know, being british and all. to me its just normal humour...

but if i think about it... like you say, sarcasm, irony... i suppose satire.. self deprecation.. subtlety.. bizzarreness. i guess its often verbal... there isnt really talk of american humour, because its not funny, and because there isnt as much in the way of verbal stuff that anyone quick can have fun with..

Though thats a more traditional description of it i think, still comedy in britain still kidna fits into that kinda thing... like doctor who its kinda eccentric... brasseye satirizes british stereotypes.. we have have i got news for you, and various similar things... green wing was pretty absurd..

hmmm i dont know.i just know most things i get sent by americans that are allegedly hilarious don't really do it for me. thats not to say i find all british comedy/humour funny... far from it... but just a greater success rate!

British humour is smarter than American humour. And sometimes sicker.
I watch a lot of stand up on Paramount but whenever there's an American on, I can't laugh.
And I'm not big on Al Murray or Peter Kay either, I like the less famous comedians like Simon Evans.

Not his best sketch; I couldn't find my favourite one ;(

isnt british humour like more inlelligent humour in some cases and in general quite diverse.
it isnt just some corny/obvious jokes with a laugh track put in.
