Description BRITISH? HUMOR? HECK, THEY CAN’T EVEN SPELL IT!
Some folks think that the words ‘British’ and ‘Humor’ should be used together sparingly. Others believe that the Brits weren’t funny until Benny Hill and the Monty Python crew pitched up. The stiff upper lip did relax. Here’s proof. Max Miller (an inspiration for Benny Hill) with sublime comic timing…Stanley Holloway’s droll comic songs…Noel Coward’s timeless wit…and much, much more.
