Just thinking about this today, I think we Scottish folk produce the worlds best comedy.

I present my evidence, feel free to add to it.









Please feel free to add further exhibits.

I think you posted in the wrong thread. This one is about comedians.

Frankie Boyle is well funny. He's as coarse as it gets and a bit intellectual on the sly.


Father Ted is probably the best Scotch comedy though. Piss my sides every time I watch it.

Father Ted Scotch? Tne wrath of the Irish is going to come down upon you!
If it wasn't for the clip, you could have pretended you meant Rab C. Nesbitt.

Was going to include Rab in the OP but I wonder how many people will fully understand this.....

At the other end of the quality scale, perhaps, is this one;
In August 1970, I was working at Butlin's Holiday Camp in Ayr.

Afterwards we went to the Redcoat variety show, called for some reason “Yubba-dubba-doo”... There was a man in a kilt telling jokes. There was one about a boarding-house landlady in a posh area of Glasgow (obviously not, because people laughed when he named it). A man came to the door looking for a room, and asked “Are there any rates?”, and she replied “No, just mice”. Charlie was very taken by this joke, and he’s kept repeating it since.

ETA - Rab C Nesbitt quote - We sing, we dance, we hunt chips and we grow tumours then we die. He was the cultural ambassador and Mayor of Glasgow wasn't he?

Ronnie Corbett was Scottish, was he not? And told some very memorable Scottish jokes. There was the one about the train conductor arguing with a passenger who was reluctant to pay his fare, and got irritated enough to throw the passenger's suitcase out of the window, the punchline being "... and now you've gone and killed my son!"

I remembered another one a moment ago. I'll edit if it comes back to me.

He was and if you look up his army catering core sketch he's very much dressed in that way.

I disagree that scots are the funniest. It is an absurd statement to say that one country has the funniest comics. A lot of comedy is contextual, so jokes that scots may find hilarious a swede , or American , or Japanese person may not because it is lost in context .
