Re: American Comedy Vs. British Comedy "TV"

Both are very different -

British shows tend to have one or two writers (often the creators) and produce short seasons of hopefully inspired comedy, i.e. Fawlty Towers.

American shows seem to be long seasons produced by multiple hired writers relying on the numbers and turnover to keep it fresh, i.e. Friends.

Both systems produce classics and duds. Mainly the latter...
Soon oh soon the light, Pass within and soothe this endless night, And wait here for you, Our reason to be here...
