Záverecný díl dnes již klasického britského komediálního seriálu vás nenechá na pochybách, že britký britský humor je neznicitelný a jeho dokonalé pointy vám zacloumají bránicí kdykoli a kdekoli. Antony Jay a Jonathan Lynn napsali po triceti letech od vysílání prvních dílu slavného Jiste, pane ministre divadelní komedii, která ve Velké Británii láme divácké rekordy a aspiruje na nejúspešnejší hru desetiletí. V satire ostré jako žiletka, plné vtipných situací, rízných slovních smecu a prívalu nových hlášek jde opet jen o jedno: o politiku.
American humor by working class people. The humor is not politically correct and does have sexual innuendos. It is ideal for salesmen, public speakers, masters of ceremonies, or just breaking the ice. The original versions of these jokes are older than I am. Having been told so many times, they are public domain. These jokes and stories represent humor at the end of the 20th Century. Due to the age of the jokes, they have been updated to modern currency and vehicles. Doctors, nurses, priests and regular working class people can also enjoy these jokes.
Women love men with a sense of humor. The life of the party is the man who cracks the right word in the right moment. The problem is: Where are the good lines when you need them? They are here. The best one-liners to show off in public and in private. All the one-liners are related to sex, women, love, and relationships. Take the lines you'll need to become the life of the party. Dating will never be the same.

In A Vulgar Art, Ian Brodie uses a folkloristic approach to stand-up comedy, engaging the discipline's central method of studying interpersonal, artistic communication and performance. Because stand-up comedy is a rather broad category, people who study it often begin by relating it to something they recognize - "literature" or "theatre"; "editorial" or "morality" - and analyze it accordingly. A Vulgar Art begins with a more fundamental observation: Someone is standing in front of a group of people, talking to them directly, and trying to make them laugh.

Older, wiser, funnier and far closer to a full breakdown, Cruttenden certainly has an edge to him. Perhaps it’s from existing on the edges of things - the edges of London, the edge of middle age, the edge of middle class and the edge of greater fame. He has all the likeability of an arena comic but with something of the night about him.
Star of QI, Live at the Apollo and Have I Got News for You, German comedy ambassador Henning Wehn gives a hilarious outsider’s view on modern British life compared to his home country.

And yes, there might be just the odd mention of the World Cup.
The Lafta funniest stand-up award winner of 2013 tackles everything borderline within the human psyche. Why is one person's offence another person's humour? PC may be his initials, but the relentless world he lives in definitely isn't. Why has tackling the preconceptions of political correctness become so offensive? Paul will tackle these areas with hard-hitting subjects like the fine art of attracting a woman, jokes cut from his TV appearances, homosexuality and nonexistent customer services.

Public speaking can be terrifying. For David Nihill, the idea of standing in front of an audience was scarier than cliff jumping into a thorny pit of spiders and mothers-in-law. Without a parachute or advanced weaponry. Something had to change.

"Authentic and enjoyable"

Helped - and hampered - by his diligent Permanent Secretary Sir Humphrey Appleby (Nigel Hawthorne) and his Principle Private Secretary Bernard Woolley (Derek Fowlds), Hacker and his department became synonymous with government bureaucracy and administrative double dealing.

"Got To Be Canadian, I Guess, to "Get It"."
Since it began several years ago Hugo Rifkind's dazzling My Week column has been satirising the high profile and the famous, and basically anyone foolish or unfortunate enough to find themselves at the top of the news agenda that week. The column itself is a fictional diary parodying their movements over seven days in a rarely flattering but always hilarious manner. Rifkind's victims are as diverse and as headline-grabbing as David Cameron, Beyoncé, Oprah Winfrey, Edwina Currie, Barack Obama and Pippa Middleton.
A hilarious field guide to the world's most remarkable and unusual creatures: the English. Who are the English? What is this puzzling species? Where does it live? What are its habits? What does it eat? Why does it eat that? And why has it developed such unexotic mating rituals? Join us on a journey deep into the natural habitat of the English, a journey to rival anything David Attenborough did with gorillas, a journey that begins on a sofa (and continues, unflinchingly, into the kitchen, out into the garden, off to work, down to the pub and then on to the beach...and the bedroom).
