Do you prefer high comedy or low comedy? I prefer high comedy myself.

Ah, interesting!

But also slightly confusing. The only named example of high they've given is Monty Python. Which comes across as rather low according to their description.

Or at the very least, a mixture.

Who made up these terms??? It's so narrowing and snobbish, I'd say I like all sorts of comedy and styles, and can laugh at slapstick eg Ant and Dec as well as more subtle abstract humour like Bill Bailey say.

Which is the option that proves I'm smarter than everyone else? I'll pick that one.
