Oh, and I forgot to mention the example of "Dinner for One":
Some great old European sketch shows (mainly in French) have indeed inspired my on-line research. And some oldies from the fifties and sixties are still shown occasionally, and I like their humour.
The most inspiring were Fernand Reynaud, Bourvil, Raymond Devos, Emil, Guy Bedos, Roland Magdane, Thierry Le Luron, François Silvant, etc.
But I had to find similar versions, stories and anecdotes in English, with the corresponding links, as the humour and word games are not quite the same.
