Usually when people call me over to their computer to see a “funny clip” they found on YouTube have to give myself a pep talk on the way over just to get myself to fake-laugh at whatever will be inflicted upon me. I just don’t find most American humor funny. At all. Think of any Will Ferrell film. Awful. Saturday Night Live. Blah. Charlie Sheen? You have to be kidding me. I am not even going to get into “romantic comedy” or the epic unfunny that is Jay Leno.
I am not exactly sure where I went wrong. The only red flag I have found is that my parents let me watch Monty Python and Are You Being Served like other children watched Barney at a young age. However it happened, here is a rundown of what I do find funny:
- The IT Crowd (available online for your Netflix instant queue)
- Better Off Ted (the only American show of the bunch…and it gets horrible ratings and will be canceled because Americans prefer The Biggest Loser apparently.)
- Black Books
- Wes Anderson movies
