That's why they put the extra 'u' in it. To let you know that it sucks.


always makes me think of the London Silly Nannies episode of Family Guy where they're watching British TV or whatever

British humor is smirking, clever funny. The problem is the people who try to get you in to it laugh hysterically at it and it's annoying because it's not laugh out loud funny.

Oh, don't be silly.

I think you're latching on an age-old stereotype of British humor, like the British stereotype of Americans not understanding irony. There are of course American comedies that do make good usage of irony that works better in an American cultural context.

By the same token, there are a few British comedies that are more straightforward and LOL-worthy. Here's the best bit of a hilarious episode of Coupling that had me in stitches. Kind of have to understand the character of Jeff Murdoch to fully appreciate it, but it's good enough to show people who aren't acquainted to the show. ;-D

A lot of Americans don't get British humour, a lot of Aussies don't either. :-S :-S

Blackadder was one of the most hilarious series' ever. Especially the first 3. :-L :-L

IT Crowd is hilarious but I don't look at it as British humor, more like really funny Brits in a really funny show. Or maybe all of those actors and all of their other shows like Mighty Boosh and such have created a new brand of British humor.
