I never did get British humor. Maybe 'cause I don't speak the language.
You do speak it, just a convoluted and distorted version of it because the 'founding fathers' saw it as a way to sever ties with England. And what a lazy attempt it was, too, just dropping a few letters here and there, changing a few spellings. If they really wanted to sever ties it should have been like the Boston Tea Party and chucked the whole lot out. Yup, they should have invented a whole new language instead of pinching ours a effing around with it.
I mean, no other nation changed the spelling of the English language, just the damned Yankees.
Seriously, I don't get some American humour, especially some of the politically inspired stuff. And I could not stand Laverne and Shirley or The Lucy Show. Those squawking high pitched voices were a complete turn off. How anybody could think they were funny beats the heck out of me.... not to mention those fake blonde bimbo voices... not funny at all.
Anyway, a US sitcom I did enjoy was Benson
