I understand that one of the biggest UK comedy hits in recent years, Little Britain has flopped horribly in the US.
I'm not surpised as its humour was often silly and near to the knuckle. I think it's massive success in the UK was not so much down to the jokes but because it went totally against the politically correct bunch and made a refreshing change. And some of the grotesque characters were brilliant piss takes of certain elements in UK society.
I'd be interested to get an American persepective on the series. Why did it fail? Is American and British humour really that different?
