3. Not a Brit, here, but

 

I hope so! One of the best British exports to the US, ever.

4. Plus, The Goons, who were Monty Python's inspiration.

The Goon Show. Peter Sellers, Spike Milligan, and Harry Seacomb were the original loony British comedy troup.



One of their best, Lurgi Strikes Britain: complete with Ray Ellington quartet, Max Geldray and his harmonica, the BBC grams department and the amazing Sellers, Milligan, and Seacomb.

7. I'd say that this show had at least as strong a claim to be Monty's Father ....
