A question in general but I guess mostly for the foreigners on the board So why do you like British comedy and what was your first encounter with British comedy ?
For me, in the 80s when I was 13 or so I had a friend who was from England and had moved to Holland. He had videotapes of Not The Nine O'Clock News, which was not on Dutch television at that time I think, but he showed us the videos and from that moment on I was hooked. It was something I had never seen before. Soon after that The Young Ones was aired on Dutch television, and again that was something I had never seen. This show was a revelation for me.
Of course I had seen Fawlty Towers and Monty Python before all this, but I was too young then to appreciate it.
Not The Nine O'Clock News and The Young Ones started it all for me.
