Many comedians from music hall and wartime gang shows worked in radio after World War 2, and characters such as Julian and Sandy on Round the Horne used innuendo extensively. Innuendo also features heavily in many British films and TV series of the late 20th century. The Carry On series was based largely on smut and innuendo, and many of the sketches of The Two Ronnies are in a similar vein. Innuendo with little subtlety was epitomised by Benny Hill , and the Nudge Nudge sketch by Monty Python openly mocks the absurdity of such innuendo.
By the end of the 20th century more subtlety in sexual humour became fashionable, as in Not the Nine O'Clock News and Blackadder , while Bottom and Viz continued the smuttier trend. In contemporary British comedy Julian Clary is an example of a prolific user of innuendo. Black humour , in which topics and events that are usually treated seriously are treated in a humorous or satirical manner, typified by:. The lovable rogue, often from the impoverished working class, trying to 'beat the system' and better himself, typified by:. The An Englishman, an Irishman and a Scotsman joke format is one common to many cultures, and is often used in English , including having the nationalities switched around to take advantage of other stereotypes.
These stereotypes are somewhat fond, and these jokes would not be taken as xenophobic. This sort of affectionate stereotype is also exemplified by 'Allo 'Allo! This also applies to a lot of the regional stereotypes in the UK. Regional accent and dialect are used in such programmes as Hancock's Half Hour , Auf Wiedersehen, Pet and Red Dwarf , as these accents provide quick characterisation and social cues. Although racism was a part of British humour, it is now frowned upon, and acts such as Bernard Manning and Jim Davidson are pilloried.
Most racist themes in popular comedy since the s are targeted against racism rather than in sympathy.

Cast Four men in a spacious dirty one room apartment in a nine room mansion, all shabbily dressed and hiding from what they suspect are ghosts. Prologue The voice of a narrator can be heard and other voices in complaint and ploy. Big Society! To prune, we must rejoice! Only good fruits should we allow to be on the trees! Narrator: [A visible lipless mouth is speaking] This society, this broken society, this society we all must join together to build again, which we must make big and bigger!
Voice: Your society or our society! Voices: [Chorus] Big Society!
You are not in school? I stopped when you came home that you lost your substance.
