There's a few series you ought to check out that are big biz over here in the UK...
World Shut Your Mouth
...pure lunacy that starts every week with Dom (the guy who writes the show) looking at one of the most amazing sites like the Great Pyramid or the Taj Mahal. He's dressed as a native and is mingling with the tourists who are photographing whatever landmark it is. He will then say 'The Great Pyramid...ancient symbol of Egyptian civilisation'. All around him murmur and bill and coo over this and agree in hushed tones. Then he'll say 'That is SHIT!' All around him people run or cower with embarrasment. Great fun.
...probably the one that has the nation either loving or hating it but definitely the most talked about show of the moment. Brainchild of Matt Lucas and David Walliam. The last series has just finished. I think they are genius bordering on insanity but they've pushed the envelope on good taste right out into the sea. Marvelous!
