Let's start with this one, which is a real classic.
One of the earliest appearances of Ronnie Barker and Ronnie Corbett (who later became a famous partnership under the name "the Two Ronnies), together with John Cleese (who later became a famous partnership under the name "John Cleese").
I shared this once on its own thread, but Youtube deleted that particular uploading later. Watch this while you can.

The Two Ronnies.
This first one is also influenced (implicitly) by class differences.


While this one became a national favourite.
Warning for Americans; some of the wordplay, including the initial joke, rests on the ambiguity of the dropped "h".



P.S. Watch how skilfully Ronnie C. suppresses the desire to corpse at "sore tips".

Please don't kick me for pointing this out, but he's not a Victorian PC Dude, Hugh Laurie is playing the son of George III who is on the throne at the time the series is set. Therefore he's a Georgian PC dude.

Sorry, wonderful thread apart from that.

Morecambe and Wise.


I wanted to share the Andre Previn concert sketch ("I am playing all the right notes- but not necessarily in the right order), but the BBC seems to have blocked them all.

About About week ago I went to the WW1 reenactment at Fort George, it's settled here in Niagara Falls area, and only 1200 meters away from a US fort, saw lots of action.
Anyways, they had a big screen setup and projector for night under the stars and they showed all the Blackadder goes forth, it was pretty cool. Especially since all the reenactment people's were still in costume around us watching.

The last episode really gets you in the feels tho. Even if it's a comedy. It has a dark twist near the end.

To someone of my generation, British comedy also means "the lad himself", the ever-indignant Tony Hancock ("They must be stark raving mad! They can't do that to me, a man of my calibre!")
This one is the source of my signature quote.


But this one provided what was once regarded as the most famous line in television comedy;



"But a pint! That's very nearly an armful!"

Re the genius of Ronnie Barker, here he is in his "Yorkshire grocer" incarnation.


And on the subject of grocers, here is the One Ronnie complaining about his Blackberry.
