Hate to say it, owing to the talent of all involved, but God that's creaky.

It's European.
So it's good.

Flagged as unfunny.

Cant wait for your Vicar of Dibley and Chef! posts.

Wow. rough crowd.

I thought it was pretty funny, but that could be just because I've seen Eric Idle's version. (Which, being only a series of photographs, was even drier. though it did include actual naked people.)

Is it me, or....was this already posted once a few months back?

I liked it, and so did the Largely Mythological Husband.

Those four could recite the phonebook and I'd crack up.

Tough crowd, indeed. Maybe because I love words and Fry and Laurie have a way with them, but I actually laughed out loud in my squalid cubicle. Luckily no one is around today to wonder why.

it was the deadpan, unison turn-and-look at the audience that really got me.

I think all of them are hilarious, but that was pretty terrible.

This is cute.

That was almost Canadian Broadcasting Corp. level unfunny.

Nothing is that unfunny. Not even the CBC.

I liked #1 & #2, but then it felt like it was trying too hard. A solid "Yeah, ok."

Funny, but not super funny. HOWEVER led me to Rowan Atkinson and Hugh Laurie's "Shakespeare - a small rewrite" which was hella funny.
