On the subject of German humor and according to my German prof, the ending of Das Boot is a great example.

Germans have a highly developed sense of humour.

They even understand sarcasm.

On the lines of german comedy or thereabouts one of my favourite comedians Stewart Lee famous (or infamous) for JErry Springer the opera has completed Stand Up opera about GErman stand up but soon discovered that the language didn't lend itself well so I think they've gone back to english.

Anyway whatever language its in it should be good.

I can't find my favourite, where two women in a laundromat discuss whether freedom whilst paying fridge installments was the crux of 'Road to Freedom", and decide to visit Jean-Paul and Betty-Muriel Sartre in Paris, having met them last summer in Ibiza, by raft across the channel, via finland, to see what they have to say, and so here is my second favourite:

I can't believe you found that video! I love conan so much.
Hey, that's nothing. The holy grail is to find a video of the embryonic rockabilly polka-dotted fighter pilots. So far even Google reveals only the meagerest of traces...

Ah, now I understand what Wayne Rooney was doing. :approve:

[quote=Danger]And leave us not forget 'The Two Ronnies'. The following is not their best stuff, but it's the only reliable video that I could find on short notice.

Those guys are great. They're as good as Carol Burnett, Harvey Korman, and Tim Conway used to be.

Harvey Korman and Tim Conway - a great pair of comedians.

And don't forget Bob Newhart.

And the great George Carlin. :rofl:

Don't mention the war. I mentioned it once, but I think I got away with it all right.
Probably the greatest episode ever!

Painfully funy at times, but to slapstick at others, i would not rate this series
as a classic .
