On the 6th/7th July, the American blogger DCwhispers reprinted a newspaper report that John Cleese was not happy with modern British comedy.
The change in British Humour is the British Broadcasting Company’s interpretation of what they think should be humour, then in the next breath, they are saying that viewing figures are down.
If you talk to the older person they still think of humour as it was in the 1970’s and 1980’s, with such programmes as “Last of the Summer Wine”, “Open all Hours”, “Are You Being Served” and “Dads Army” etc. alongside American programs such as Frasier.
These are still being watched and enjoyed time and time again and it will continue that way for many years despite the BBC.
