Former colony we may be, but you Limies must agree we are the epicenter of comedy....
Hahahaha - I hope you were being ironic there...
I have certainly enjoyed plenty of US sitcoms - "Arrested Development", "Cybill", "High Society", Roseanne", "The Golden Girls", "Curb Your Enthusiasm" and "Frasier" spring to mind. .
The US certainly makes plenty of comedies... whether or not many of them are THAT funny... well...
The English have it all over them in their ability to write something that is sharp, witty and unsentimental. You obviously need more convincing.
I suggest: Absolutely Fabulous
The Mighty Boosh
The Young Ones
The Life and Times of Vivienne Vyle
The New Statesman
The Vicar of Dibley.
For a start!
