Humour on the edge November 11, 2006Posted by Amanda in Travel Diary.
We have had a funny week this week. Yes funny ha ha.
I don’t think that you often see entertainment that really makes you laugh but this week has not been bad.
On Tuesday night we went to see Borat with Fil and El in Oxford. Although a lot of the laughs were tinged with a cringe it was very funny. Then on Thursday night we went to see “The Producers” in the West End.
The thing that both of these had in common was that they played with humour that could be risky. Borat has something in it to offend everyone and if the racist or sexist jokes don’t get you, then the naked wrestling scene is sure to do it.
The Producers is of course about the production of “Springtime for Hitler” the musical. Along with the obvious in the title, there is the “make it gay, make it gay, make it gay” twist. I don’t think I have seen Chris laugh so much in a long time.
so that’s that.
