How funny are we?!

Although I love American sitcoms – Friends, Will and Grace, Frasier – I think the British sense of humour is the best in the world.

Comedians like Ricky Gervais make me so proud. The Office and Extras are brilliant shows, but it’s his stand up and off-the-cuff stuff that really makes me laugh.

Click on the clip below to watch him at the Emmys on the weekend. He wasn’t even accepting an award, just giving one, but he still managed to steal the show. I’ve no idea how Steve Carell (the one from The 40 Year Old Virgin) kept a straight face – I’d have been giggling like a child!

What do you reckon? Am I biased or are we really the funniest nation in the world?
