Who Loves British Comedy?
I am a huge Absolutely Fabulous fan. From my younger days I really enjoyed Monty Python and Benny Hill.
There was a show a while back called Eddie UK or something like that. I really liked that, but I haven't seen it in a while. It was American/British and a total riot.
My best Monty Python story: When I was working in radio in Oklahoma City (early 1990s), we had a system piped through city hall that everyone (off air competition) used and everyone (colleagues) listened to. I was one of the afternoon drive news anchors. We were getting tired of everyone trying to snarf our hard work and the reporter was getting POed at the other news organizations. (this was before small cell phones that worked).
One day he snapped. We had been chatting earlier about Monty Python and his favorite episode was "Penguin on the Telly." He went on the system and did the entire routine of penguin on the telly that I ran through the entire newsroom to everyone's delight. I don't know what the other stations thought of it (and of course it wasn't on the air at that time). I was just dying laughing. Imagine, you're expecting a report on city council and you get the penguin on the telly. Great stuff.
