I first watched Monty Python when I was quite young in the company of older brothers & a lot of the humour went over my head at the time. It didn't take to long for me to catch tho
Does anyone remember a show
with Marty Feldman & Spike Milligan?
That was truly absurd but I remember my eldest brother literally rolling around on the floor with laughter.
Another old comedian worth checking out is a Scot called Chic Murray. He was so droll & dry & very very funny. Years later I used to drink in a bar in zedinburgh he used to own, but never met him unfortunately.
As for all the other programmes mentioned....I have never watched any of them! I rarely find a US sitcom funny (sorry).
I didn't watch any of the original British Office either, tho couldn't avoid all the clips & hype. I'm afraid I can't stand Ricky Gervais!!
He is constantly cropping up on chat shows & is just so full of himself. I just don't get why people think he is funny
