Dad was a huge fan of British comedies. In his later years, he regularly watched The Vicar of Dibley and Keeping Up Appearances. Just like when he was watching The Golden Girls, he would laugh hysterically at the jokes and puns, even if he had seen the episodes a dozen times before.
When I was a kid, I remember watching lots of other comedies with him. He was a big fan of Benny Hill. As an adult, I realize how much of that actually went over my head. Sometimes I can't believe I was allowed to watch that with him! He also watched a lot of Monty Python's Flying Circus and the various movies. He also was hooked on Absolutely Fabulous.
It's his fault that I am now addicted to the same.
