International Bon Vivant and Raconteur
I've been watching Little Britain on DVD after numerous recommendations from everyone everywhere, and I'm really loving its wacky, surreal British humor.
Needless to say, the unseen narrator, voiced by Tom Baker, is my favorite character. He gets all the best lines. Two of my favorites so far:
"Books were introduced into Britain in the 1950s. Early books had no words or pictures. But nowadays the book world is thriving, with over seven books published every year!"
"With nothing to watch but repeats on the telly of Doctor Who, Medics, and that episode of Blackadder II I was on, Lou and Andy go to rent a video."
Funny stuff. I normally tire quickly of sketch comedy, especially when they use recurring characters, but this is very, very good. Thanks for the recommendation, entire world!
