Where is the good humour?

I agree completely. So much worring about not offending everyone, you cant say anything about anything anymore!!!! The one thing I am glad of is that Cape Town comedians have not stuck to the rules of political correctness, and are quite happy to poke fun at others and themselves in a light hearted manner. Of course one can go to far with it as well, but they seem to keep it in check. If only everyone could have a comic view on life!

I have to say there are a few good shows still around. Have you watched Johnny Vegas in Ideal, that is hilarious and well worth seeing. Also, Lead Balloon with Jack Dee, very dry. I miss Red Dwarf so much, the last series was so funny I really thought they were going to make another. I know its old now, but have you seen Spaced, I love it.

I totally agree. It's so difficult to find reasons in real life to laugh that it only seems possible to find genuine humor in books or in movies / shows. I spent a couple of years in the 80's in England, and with hindsight I didn't like it a lot. But I DO remember Monty Python, John Cleese's Faulty Towers and similar shows. They were just hilarious - and , as you say, they are gone. What about Mel Brooks and 'Blazin Saddles'. I saw that in '89 in London, and it was the last time I really laughed.
