Jimmy Carr is an english comedian well known for his dry, sataristical humor, or anti-humor. He is also the host for the popular game show on comedy central, "Distraction", and the British TV show "Your Face or Mine". In 2003, he was listed in The Observer as one of the 50 funniest acts in British comedy.
Jimmy Carr has an unique style of humor
British does not mean English. Britain consists of four nations: England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales. NEVER call an Irishman "british" because he (or she) will hurt you.
We LOVE laughing at ourselves and everyone else.(We call this "taking the piss".) We have a pretty evil sense of humour, but that's the best kind! We excel at black comedy, sarcasm, satire, understatement, and comedy in geneal. Alot of people don't 'get' our humour, but i suppose that's down to cultural differences. We're proud of our sense of humour.
We don't all speak posh, like the queen. There are SO many accents in the UK. I've lived in Britain all my life, and I've only met a handful of posh people. I hate that people think we're all upperclass and aristocratic,. Not true ATALL!
We don't sit around having tea parties, with china tea cups, and frilly tablecloths. We don't use words like "cheerio", we DO NOT love the queen.
You wish you were British
|3.||French and Saunders|
1. Dawn French and Jennifer Saunders
2. The greatest female double act in the history of British comedy. In fact, the greatest in the history of all comedy.
3. Two of the loveliest women you could ever hope to meet (a privilege afforded to a fortunate few among their legions of fans...this author included)
4. Fatty and Moo (If confused, read "Dear Fatty" by Dawn French)
5. A sizeable, wacky brunette and her taller, thinner, blonder partner in crime.
6. The very best antidote to stress, sadness, anxiety, and anger; a true anti-drug.
"Are you gonna do the accent or not?!"
"I AM doing the accent! Harr are yehw?"
"French and Saunders are Absolutely Fabulous sweetie darling!"
the scottish version of "phil mccracken". Pronounced "Fill Ma' Cavity" Essentially a humorous alias to use on school sign-in forms or to identify ones'self as to unsuspecting law enforcement personnel, as the humour in such a joke is two-fold: from the indivuidual pronouncing the name, and from his/her puzzlment and sudden realization as to what they have justr said.
Used to great comic effect in an episode of the British comedy "The Thin Blue Line" starring Rowan Atkinson, where the police force of a small town struggles with the stinging wit of a London baddie.
Officer Fowler Rowan Atkinson(explaining to others): "now watch how it's done. What's your name, son?"
London Boy: (acting very awkward) Ivor, sir
Fowler: Very well, what's your last name, son?
London Boy: Biggun, officer.
Fowler (turns to Constable Goody James Dreyfus) :Goody, take note- Ivor Biggun
(which comes out in a british accented-voice as "I'va big'un." much laughter, Fowler rushes angrily out of room, is seen muttering outside to himself)
Goody: (exiting room, rather happy) Great news sir, he just named his two Scottish accomplices, Ben Doone and Phil Macavity!
Whats it like to be British? An understanding of subtle irony in comedy is very important as is a self depreciating sense of humour. Hating the French and most other Europeans would be an advantage but viewing the former colonys as "naughty children" when they start wars or international feuds etc. Manners and a sense of fair play are also very important. I personally do have bad teeth and see no real malice in americans making jokes about the british teeth (its just a joke!!)
Oh and on a final note we gave the French mad cow disease LOL!!!
"Yes you did bail us out in 1945 but we gave you our splendid language"
"British people best in the world, old chap"
From the British Comedy series, Monty Python's Flying Circus. Just another fictional character like jesus
Mrs Nigger-Baiter: Ooh, he's a clever little boy - he's a clever little boy. (gets out a rattle) Do you like your rattle? Do you like your rattle? Look at his little eyes following it ... look at his iggy piggy piggy little eyeballs eh... oo... he's got a tubby tumotum. Oh, he's got a tubby tum-tum.
Son: (whilst Mrs Nigger-Baiter is talking) Mother, could I have a quick cup of tea please. I have an important statement on Rhodesia to make in the Commons at six.
(Sound of an explosion out of vision. Cut to reveal Mrs Nigger-Baiter's chair charred and smoking. Mrs Nigger-Baiter is no longer there. The upholstery is smouldering gently.)
Mrs Shazam: Oh, Mrs Nigger-Baiter's exploded.
Son: Good thing, too.
a hilarious british TV comedy that was cancelled, if it has been cancelled. mr. bean is played by rowan atkinson who is also in the movies love actually and bean. in my opinion, one of the funniest British TV shows to be cancelled.
made into an fiscally unsuccessful movie starring rowan atkinson and the crazy dude from ghostbusters.
i like the episode where mr. bean falls asleep during church on his knees and face on the floor and he sneezes and has to use the inside of his pocket as a handkerchief.
