With so many good choices out there, it’s hard to narrow it down to just one.
So here is a list of the 7 most hilarious, all-time favorites for Brits and non-Brits alike.
7. Absolutely Fabulous
Girls just want to have fun…
And amidst their self-destructive behaviors and endless pursuit of youth, their lives are not exactly fun, yet viewers love making fun of them.
This character-driven satire about aging gracefully is a classic that will never get old.
6. Mr. Bean
Who can someone turn to after a long day, when he’s just tired of listening to people talk?
Mr. Bean at your service.
His family-friendly persona and classic slapstick stunts have made Mr. Bean an international British idol. Everyone knows his name, even people who have never seen the show and don’t speak any English.
Bean’s quirky antics aired for five years in the 90s, and he has made two movies, Bean (1997) and Mr. Bean’s Holiday (2007).
5. The Office
Another day at the office, selling paper.
The plot sounds admittedly mundane, but this British mockumentary is so awkward that it’s painful, and it can make cubicle workers feel better about their lives.
The British success spawned an American version that gained huge popularity with US audiences.
4. The Inbetweeners
This series features a group of hapless high-schoolers and their laughable schemes. With unforgettable characters and thorny plot lines, viewers can’t help but enjoy watching the chaos unfold.
The script seems to have a language all its own, with terms and phrases that these memorable young men coin. People of all ages will enjoy losing themselves in the drama of these young men’s lives.
3. Fawlty Towers
Crackers with a side of Cleese? This hit tops the list because it features John Cleese, whose sharp and dry humor with nutty overtones make this aged classic delectable.
Cleese is a UK comedic legend who made it big with Monty Python’s Flying Circus.
With the intriguing scenarios that main character Basil Fawlty and his hotel staff find themselves in, audiences will be amused by this lighthearted show.
2. Gavin and Stacey
Those who like the American hit Friends will enjoy the light humor and relatable, yet eccentric characters in this love story.
Mix in some awkward relationships between friends and family, engaging plot lines and a touch of ridiculousness, and you’ve got an award-winning show.
1. Monty Python’s Flying Circus
The only thing worse than getting hit by a catapulted rabbit is…getting hit by a catapulted cow.
That’s what kids and adults find irresistible about this zany bunch of characters. They never quite know what to expect.
