View Full Version : How about a sketch thread?

I thought since we have a joke thread, we should have a sketch thread as well.

Since we're probably restricted to english here, my choices are limited by that.

When it comes to sketch comedy I am, probably because of more exposure, an anglophile. I prefer english sketch comedy to the american. I am sure many of you think the complete opposite.

I love "A bit of Fry & Laurie" (no sign to the order)

The first one is about a bartender (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mvXl2mmIFYA) with unfortunate suggestions in a conversation.
In the second one you can see that Laurie did an american accent before House in From here to just over there (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N8qw3oWvDpo)
The third one is about an impossible eye witness (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GqOC_knfvqw&feature=related).
The fourt one is a game show (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tm0LnZOf_O0&feature=relmfu)that would be interesting to watch.

There are tons more of great aboF&L sketches

I must put a Monty Python sketch in here as well.

WARNING!!!! DO NOT EAT ANYTHING WHEN WATCHING THIS. This sketch (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MlfcF1I5e_g) :eek: is by far the most disgusting sketch I've seen that I can think of right now.
It's bad taste to its limits. Observe the funny song in the beginning (not really suitable for the place).

Told you it was nasty.

Now what are yours?

I'm not in a place where I can put anything up, but I like English comedy as much as American comedy. Both have there goods and bads. I like some Australian comedy but it can be harsh at times.

I tend to enjoy comedians who tell stories, like Danny Bhoy, Jerry Clower, Brother Dave Gardener, John Pinette, Eddie Izzard, etc. I'll post some when I get home.

Monty Python's spam sketch is my favorite. When i had full cable i watched a lot of bbc tv. Father Ted for the WIN !

When I first saw this thread, I thought it was a drawing thread. I can't draw, but I would have loved to have seen pictures by Theorylanders who (think they) can.

First I'd like to apologise to all MJ fans.

Notice the moon walk in the beginning of the performance and the total lack of coordination.
He really tries to the best of his ability.

The performance starts at about 1:55 if you want to skip the interview.

Enjoy (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CJW_yTbYGoI)
