Hi Queens men. I love British humor especially the Goon Show. My mothers family all emigrated from Britain after the war. Some came from London area some from Northumberland. Lost a great grandfather to a V2.

The Goons were my favourite as a lad. Spike Milligan met Harry Secombe in North Africa during WW2. Milligan was a gunner in the Royal Artillery. Apparently Milligans gun crew sited a gun on top of a hill, when the gun fired it jumped out of the gun pit and rolled down hill followed by Milligan. Milligan opened the canvas tilt of a Bedford 3 tonner where Secombe was sitting and said those famous words, ""Anyone seen a gun??"" Hillarious.

Do you ever get to download old british sitcoms? I can recommend quite a few, a couple of them quite controversial in today's climate.

Sure please do, I can only image the controversy. They wouldn't involve women would it?

I loved Spike Milligan's war memoirs, I remember picking up my first one in the school library by accident and couldn't put them down until I had read them all.

The wife thought I was crazy but I also used to play the audiobooks to the kid at times, figured you are never too young to appreciate good literature.

'Love thy neighbour', which is about a black family moving in next door to an intolerant guy and his long suffering family, there is a message in it and the black guy always comes out on top, but it's something that would never be shown today.
' mind your language'
'It Ain't Half Hot Mum' a sitcom based in the Burma jungle, again some depictions and language could cause offence.
Some of the best shows though are
Only Fools And Horses

And two shows featuring the late rik mayal
The young ones

Alan ba'stard was a classic I agree.
He was also good in the movie drop dead Fred.
