"what do you mean north american stuff?" it's a place to write about american stuff...and canadian stuff. but only stuff you like. i'm too tired to sit around reading the very very very long list of american entertainment that sucks.

"what brought this on, banjo?" well, i felt bad for typing a whole paragraph in the middle of a thread about what american shows and people i DO find funny.

so here.

so to repeat what i said in another thread:

I HEART AMY SEDARIS. and i like david sedaris too. i like john stewart and stephen colbert and conan o'brien. i also really like some of the people recently involved with saturday night live... tina fey, amy pollard, and will farrell. i haven't watched it in forever, and snl can be pretty bad, but right after sept 2001 they started making me laugh when i never thought i could.

i also like king of the hill. and will always LOVE kids in the hall.

there are many older american tv shows i adore: mary tyler moore is one.

all these items i propose as good north american funny stuff.

We used to get Trailer Park Boys here too, but for some reason BBCAmerica stopped airing it.

i rented season three, it's the only bit i saw. it WAS really good. i'd never heard anything about it before or since.

CAROL BURNETT!! ace. the gone with the wind sketch was one of the greatest.

As I said in the other thread, yes! MST3K is fantastic.

Kids in the Hall---absolutely! Always loved them. My mother even loves them--I was surprised b/c I thought they were too gross for her. (She's kind of a puritan.)

Basically, every time I watched KITH with my mom and there was a sketch about the chicken lady, I would get worried b/c I thought she would say I couldn't watch the show anymore. (I was about thirteen then.) I would look over and see my mom wincing at some of the grossness, but inevitably, I would look over again and she would be laughing. It was weird.
