Pretty simple; What do you think of American comedy? Like it? Hate it? Think British versions of American shows are way better/worse?

For me, I personally would say 40% good, 60% not good.

Looking through my poll, options 2 and 3 are damn near the same. Oh well.

Mostly unfunny.

Like any genre, it contains some turds and some gems.

While I'm on the subject, Rob Dyrdek = Turd. Tosh = God.
RIP Tom Searle.

As for the swim team member that drowned, it just means the swim team just got a lot better. Same with him too, it's time to move on, the weakest link is gone...

Madcap, dang hadnt seen you in years! but to answer you're question I like American comedy i mean to an extent there is some blatant non funny shows out there but i guess i pick and choose enough to say i like it. Workaholics is my new favorite =]
#11
It's funny to Americans. Cause there the ones making it. So it must be funny to them?

Generalizations all around=dumb thread

Sometimes it's funny, but everyone here loves Tosh.o and it's awful, and I watched Key and Peele last night......worst thing ever.

The main thing I've noticed about a lot of comedy, (regardless of the country of origin), is that:

"If no-one laughs the first time I tell my joke, I just tell it again. But this time, I shout every word".
#15
It really all depends what type of comedy it is and who's presenting it really. I personally like some british shows just because the comedy combined with a nice british accent makes it that much better.

Epiphone Les Paul Studio Deluxe
ESP LTD EX-360
Peavey VYPYR 30W

"There's nothing constant in the universe.
All ebb and flow, and every shape that's born,
bears in it's womb, the seeds of change".

like... what? that's a pretty broad question. if you wanna go my percentages, i probably like a lot more British comedy, but that's just based on my assumption that there's overall a lot more American shows in general, and most of them are utter shit.

My thoughts? I don't have too many of those, I'm not going to give them away all willy-nilly
My God, it's full of stars!

I don't pay attention to too many non-American comics/shows I either think something is funny or don't, nationality literally has nothing to do with it.

are you serious? a carbon copy of Tosh.0? Rob Dyrdek is a ****ing toolbag.
#22
Except you're forgetting, Jay, that Dyrdek is a pro skateboarder with multiple shows, one of which is review bail clips, and the other is an actual comedian.

Anything on MTV or VH1 doesn't ****ing count as American comedy. There's plenty that are great: John Stewart, Stephen Colbert, Tosh, Gaffigan, Louis CK, Seth MacFarlane, Chappelle, Charlie Day (and the rest of the Always Sunny crew), and many others.

Used to be gold, modern comedy is god damn terrible though. It's all built out of randomness and has no structure and makes no sense. I don't even know why it's supposed to be funny. Stand up comedians are still the same though, there's tons that still make me laugh. I was talking about scripted comedy like on TV.

Louie C.K. seems pretty funny. And Brian Reagan, if I don't have to actually watch him, but just listen. There are some truly awful standup comedians, but a few good ones.

There are some sitcoms that aren't really aimed to be funny, but have some funny characters. Barney from How I Met Your Mother stands out, not for his crude stuff, but a few of his more clever lines.
