BRITISH HUMOR – TYPES AND CHARACTERISTIC Czarek Kowalski III A BRITISH SENSE OF HUMOR British really like telling jokes. They are always do it, when they are angry, bored or upset. They are very forgiving and they have lots of distance themselves. British are very brave, too. They aren’t afraid of telling a joke about their boss or manager when he is listening to this joke But he often likes jokes and he’ll be never angry, when somebody will tell joke about him On the contrary, he will laugh to tears It is funnier and more forgiving nation than Polish. Sometimes, the British humor can be controversial, excessive, uncompromising and incongruous. Humor in Great Britain is other at every part of the country. British are very relaxed, they’ll always find a reason for laugh TYPES OF BRITISH HUMOR English humor – it is characteristed for English part of UK. People usually laugh at: Prime Minister, homosexualists, foreigners (especially Asians, Scottish, French and….. Polish ). Like other British, they are laugh at other people who live in the UK. English always criticize everything, which is foreign; they think that their products are the best in the world (in fact, their products aren’t the best ). Scottish humor – this sort of humor occurs in Scotland. Scottish people laugh at: weather, faith, obesity, English. „Black humor” – very controversial type of jokes. It is about funerals, death, racism, faith, sex, women and stupid people. It can be funny at times BRITISH HUMOR IN POPCULTURE English humor is goodknown in the world. I don’t know a person, who doesn’t know Charlie Chaplin, Benny Hill or Mr. Bean. These people are faces of British humor. MR. BEAN Mr. Bean is a British comedy television programme series of 14 twentyfiveminute episodes written by and starring Rowan Atkinson as the title character. The title character, played by Rowan Atkinson, is a childish and selfcentred buffoon who brings various unusual schemes and contrivances to everyday tasks. He lives alone in his small flat in Highbury, and is almost always seen in his trademark tweed jacket and a skinny red tie. He also usually wears a digital calculator watch. Mr. Bean rarely speaks, and when he does, it is generally only a few mumbled words which are in a comically lowpitched voice. THE BENNY HILL SHOW The Benny Hill Show was a British comedy television show starring Benny Hill. There were various incarnations of the show between 15 January 1955 and 30 May 1991, and it aired in over 140 countries. The Benny Hill Show features Benny Hill in various short comedy sketches. The show also features occasional extravagant musical performances by artists of the time. Hill appears in many different costumes and portrays a vast array of characters. Slapstick, burlesque and double entendres are his hallmark. A group of critics accused the show of sexism, but Hill said that female characters kept their dignity while the men chasing them were portrayed as buffoons. MONTY PYTHON Monty Python (sometimes known as The Pythons) were a British surreal comedy group that created Monty Python's Flying Circus, a British television comedy sketch show that first aired on the BBC on 5 October 1969. Fortyfive episodes were made over four series. The television series, broadcast by the BBC from 1969 to 1974, was conceived, written and performed by members Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones, and Michael Palin.
