Chris has been doing these short promos for the BBC America Ministry of Laughs block, so let’s watch one, shall we? Here’s a brief lesson in the art of the Great British Insult, using illustrations from The Inbetweeners:
I think I could match that with a few Mid-Atlantic American insults of my own. But I’m not on a sitcom.
In case you missed the one about drag, with clips from Come Fly With Me, here it is:
And with that, I’ll throw in a blatant plug (unpaid — at least, the BBC didn’t pay ME for it) (although they COULD, if they really wanted to) (but they didn’t) (but they could) for Ministry of Laughs, Saturday night at 10 pm Eastern/9 pm Central on BBC America. No, I don’t know what channel it’s on in your town. Check the cable or satellite listings, or go here and click on “Channel Finder” in the top menu. I know it’s on channel 189 nationally on Verizon FiOS, for what that’s worth. They’re doing a little photo caption contest over at the BBC America website, too, if you’re interested. And while we’re plugging things, Chris is playing in the Washington area Friday and Saturday nights at the Arlington Cinema and Drafthouse, so go see him, hug him, and if you go on Saturday, set your DVR.
