Hello, this may seem like a complaint thread nut however it is very true, WHATS HAPPEND TO COMEDY?!?!?!
I myself am a comdeic writer, and comedy has been abscent for the past few years, the only TRUE topical comedy i see now is South Park and Family
Guy. But even though i wasnt around in the 70's, there was plenty around. Such as Monty Python, Fawlty Towers, Blackadder, Not The Nine O'clock
News, The Young Ones. The the 80's with Spitting Image, The Ambasader (i think the name was, however it has Rick Myal In), Bottom, Then the 90's
With Harry Endfield, The Fast show, And since then its been very low grade comedy, from Bo S'electa and Little brittan, As well as The Leage Of
Gentelmen. The only topical thing we have had since then in South Park ( by the by i am a HUGE fan of) but what has happend to comedy?!?!
Theere is so much now that could be used within comedic programs that is not being used, is there a reason behind this??
It seems that before South Park, anything goes, but now its extreamily strict.
For all the comic writters this is a pain in the ass, but does anyone have an idea why this is so??
edit for many spell errors
