British Humor + Tech = I Thought This Was Funny... How 'Bout You? Listen to this article


One of my all-time favorite movies is… Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Even though it looks dated now (since it is) I still laugh when I watch it. And I’m not alone. A few years ago Elana and I went to see the Broadway version of it- Spamalot. (More accurately, I dragged her to see it with me.) She near died of embarrassment as I kept saying lines as they were being uttered. I believe she would have moved her seat were it not for one small fact… Half of the theater was doing it too. 🙂

In short— I really like British humor. It is, for the most part, smart, creative and just edgy enough to be funny without being “Andrew Dice Clay offensive”.
