From General Discussion / British Humour v. American Humor

I agree about Animal House - an odd choice to illustrate his point. I'd almost forgotten it! I would have thought he could have come up with something a bit more current, but he also used relatively old British examples, as well. I don't know how old the clip is, but it looks recent.

Fry, himself, is unlike most - if not all - British funnymen, and more like the Americans he described, in my opinion. I think he sees himself as Wilde: speech, dress, and so on. When I used to watch Q.I., I used to think (imagine?) he didn't quite know what to do with American or Canadian guests, and smiled a bit too much, obviously thinking they wanted that kind of reaction, whereas the Brit comic, having made his funny line, might have expected a chiding glance from Fry, and a quick-witted riposte.

I wonder what Erskin thinks...

What I got from the clip, Dave, was that he described a lot of British humour, and British comedians, perfectly. I obviously only see the American scene on my TV, or what I happen to stumble across on the internet, but I found his analysis was fairly close to what I have experienced.

We Brits don't mind not only poking fun at ourselves, but ramming it down our own throats. Like charity, comedy begins at home, you might say; if we're going to humiliate anyone with humour, it might as well be ourselves.

I don't see that in American humour, but maybe I'm not looking hard enough.
