Looking In and Out

British Comedy Part One

I have been working on a piece about British comedy, but I’m struggling to get my thoughts organised. There are a few “acts” I’d like to focus on and these include:

•    Ricky Gervais, Stephen Merchant (and Karl Pilkington)
•    The Likely Lads
•    Graham Linehan and his crew
•    Green Wing

Enjoy.

MONKEY NEWS

Oh, Karl. “They did a thing, like they do.” Love the monkey when he puts the spacecraft into reverse. Note: The original video I posted here was not from the HBO series but apparently HBO has eliminated all animated Ricky Gervais except theirs. They are bastards.

WHATEVER HAPPENED TO THE LIKELY LADS

My heart belongs to Terry Collier.

THE IT CROWD

Watch Richard Ayoade’s leg action. Priceless.

GREEN WING

Believe it or not, it does all make sense. The clips suffer though from the lack of the brilliant original soundtrack.
