      Americans. By far.
      Fast, clean and cheap.

        Intentionally or unintentionally? I think Americans have a lock on the latter.

          professional american comedians are way better...

          but i think the brits as a people are probably naturally funnier.

            jeez.....i think it kinda depends on the situation.

            i mean.....John Cleese and company are pretty hard to beat.....but it's a completely different kind of funny compared to.....Mel Brooks (and company)

              I don't know, but I've never round Ricky Gervais to be particularly funny.

              Thought that was worth mentioning.

                    The British tip the scales for me with their appreciation of the absurd.

                        Are you including the numerous notable Canadians who appeared on SNL? Ie: Norm MacDonald, Mike Meyers, Dan Akroyd, Martin Short etc.

                          I have always preferred British (and Irish) comedy.

                            I really like the style of humor that Ricky Gervais does but it's atypical of the tired **************** I grew up with watching Monty Python and Benny Hill. Americans are by far funnier to me, but I like dark, twisted, passive aggressive, racist humor ala Curb Your Enthusiasm or Louie.

                            I can't stand sitcoms with laugh tracks or Parks and Recreation.
