Re: Dinner for one!!!

At the risk of being flamebait am I the only person who finds this sketch completely unfunny? I recorded it to see what the fuss is and just watched it now. Servant impersonates dead guests, gets drunk and repeatedly trips over a Tiger's head. And this is funny how?

Re: Dinner for one!!!

The secrets of humor I suppose.
I find plenty of things not funny at all what others roar with laughter about, so !!!

Nah. One of my Swiss friends insisted it was English, but if you read the end titles, you'll see it's actually a German production.

And crap, too.

only British humor can produce something like Dinner for one though, you do agree with that, don't you sutter ?
