You're a funny guy. Love the humor. Do you have any favorite American comedians and comedy films?

Thank you, you're very kind.

American stand-ups, in no particular order:

Bill Hicks
Richard Pryor
Doug Stanhope
Louis CK
Chris Rock
Sam Kinison

I don't tend to find US films or TV very funny. There is a rather stale, homogenised version of comedy which has been honed and shaped by Hollywood and the US TV networks over the years that leaves me cold. A good example is the remake of 'The Office' which in its original form is one of the funniest things I've ever seen and as a remake leaves me feeling cold and mirthless from the outset.

That said, I piss my pants whilst watching South Park and Family Guy.
