Brits Do It Right :Come Fly With Me

                                                       

Britain…Britain…Britain

I have recently been introduced to the comedy of Matt Lucas and David Walliams  through their hilarious series Little Britain,Little Britain USA and Come Fly with me.

I have been living under a rock I know otherwise how could I have sat through mediocre funny sitcoms when this jem of a comedy was being made, the work of Matt Lucas and David Walliams is brilliant, it’s a sketch comedy that talks about brits in all forms of life. the two comedians take on different characters usually women and dazzle the audience with their smart relentless comedy. I first thought it was a show about two transvestite actors so I wasn’t too keen on watching but then I was proven wrong and was completely hooked.

British comedy doesn’t get enough credit outside the UK ( in comparison to american comedy shows) and when it does it is usually formatting the show to fit audiences from other countries like USA, and I don’t understand why? British comedy is not necessarily too British for others to appreciate I live in the middle east and I get it and trust me I’m not that bright ! I think people just stick to the familiar but British comedy is a creative well that should be tapped.

Come fly with me comes in a different formatt than Matt Lucas and David Walliams’s other ventures. It’s in mockumentary style and it deals with day to day situations in a British airport  as the two comedians play different characters, the show is unapologetic about it’s own nature which for me is one of the greatest things about comedy.

If you haven’t watched then buy little Britain USA season 1,Little Britain Seasons 1-3 and Come fly with me season 1 out   14/11/2011. 

Goodsigh ……….

                                                                                                                

Joined At The Hip : Comedy Duos That We Love Together

NOTE:some of the videos below may contain crude language

Some heads are meant to stay attached together to bring havoc and chaos onto the world, there is nothing better when two brilliant people get together and decide to bring their vision to life.Some of those visions are brilliant and some are better shredded.Here are examples of duos that brought us nothing but laughter.

1. David Walliams and  Matt Lucas Little Britain and Little Britain USA : if you haven’t ever watched the show you should. Those two are brilliant British comedians  that try through skits and dressing up as women to introduce the real heart of Britain to the audience. The show is created by the two actors and performed by them too. The show is an exhilarating ride through hilarious characters.

2.  Matt Stone and  Trey Parker South park and The Book of Mormon: They are brilliantly funny and ruthless with their jokes. Two of the sickest minds in comedy those two should never be separated.South park the animated marvel from those two creators written and brought to life by their voices shows a great deal of talent. The two mentioned are an endless fountain of brilliance and insult.

3. Tina Fey and  Amy Poehler Saturday Night Live and Baby Mama: actors and writers even though both have separate shows now on NBC whenever those two get together it’s a whirlwind of pleasure….that didn’t sound right….I mean it’s a carnival of entertainment…better right? they collaborated on SNL skits and they were the best ones and then they collaborated on the movie Baby Mama. On occasion we see those two together on TV like Jimmy Fallon’s Jersey Floor.
