‘We’ve got some poor copies of Curb Your Enthusiasm, some poor copies of Entourage and some poor copies of Seinfeld."
That's Ricky Gervais on the state of British comedy. Fair enough some of it's weak and I don't want to start criticising him for having an opinion (he does seem to go on about this a lot though). Who is he talking about though?
Curb is obviously Lead Balloon- that's obvious.
I can't think of British format equivalents.
