Great Comedy Shows Not From The USA Or The UK
The kings of comedy are the UK who seem to of kicked things of with Monty Python all those years ago. Now they churn out two season mini series. The USA knows that there is money to be made and generally make much longer running shows. But what of the rest of the English speaking world? There are some gems you may of missed so lets find out.
New Zealand - Flight of the Conchords
Canada - Trailer Park Boys
Australia - None Yet
Australia has lots of good comedy series but no stand-outs. Chris Lilley has created some great moments and some not so great moments. Check out his We Can Be Heros series for his best bits.
The older Kath and Kim was quite a big hit. It was an amusing look at lower class Ozzies, but again never really stood out as a piece of brilliance.
Wilfred is now known as a US series, but it actually began in a much rawer form in Australia. The man dog Wilfred is still played by an Ozzie, but the joke wore thin after two seasons.
We shall just have to keep waiting for a great comedy show to come out of Australia.
