How on earth did I miss this?!

BBC iPlayer, how I love you.

Fact x Importance = News

Hello everyone!

Many thanks to [personal profile] lupinity87 for setting up this community. I'm a huge British comedy geek. I enjoy the likes of Father Ted, Black Books, Spaced, Look Around You, Outnumbered, I'm Alan Partridge, The Adam and Joe Show, Monty Python, Rock Profile, Brass Eye, The Day Today, The Office, and an assortment of panel shows (Buzzcocks, Shooting Stars, Have I Got News... to name a few).

One of the things I like about British comedy is the way the actors tend to guest star on each others sitcoms a lot. I watched an episode of Brass Eye the other day and was like "hey, there's Brian from Spaced... and look, Hugh Dennis!". You never know when a familiar face is going to appear out of the blue.

I just wanted to share a couple of clips from The Day Today which I hope will make you laugh. For those who are not familiar with it, it's a parody of news programmes.

Enjoy!

British Bingo?

Hello!

So my bingo for [community profile] kink_bingo this year was a Big Bad British Bingo and included squares for Doctor Who (duh), Monarch of the Glen, Tipping the Velvet (which isn't technically a Britcom), Hotel Babylon, and Red Dwarf. During the amnesty period, I have plans for some Are You Being Served?, Father Ted, Coupling, Fawlty Towers, and Yes, Minister/Yes, Prime Minister fun.

Did anyone else get a square for a Britcom? I'd love links to your contributions, too!

Hello!

Hello, and welcome to Dreamwidth's community for fans of British (and Irish*) comedies!

There are a few general posting guidelines on the community's profile, but most of them are common sense so don't panic too much over them! Perhaps the only one which is worth paying close attention to is regarding downloads - if members would like to share downloads of full length, commercially released episodes of a show, please keep it to private messages or another site! This is to avoid getting the community or Dreamwidth into hot water over copyrights (and besides, there's no harm in encouraging others to support the makers and buy the DVDs). Shorter clips and YouTube videos are more than welcome, though!

Otherwise, anything and everything is welcome - reviews, news, favourite clips, art, fanfiction, and updates about actors' other projects (and also anything else which I may have forgotten).

If anyone has any questions, comments or suggestions, feel free to leave a comment or send me a message! I'll normally reply within the day.

Happy posting!
Loopy (your friendly local moderator)
