The weather is turning and in true British fashion the summer seems to have passed by in the blink of an eye. While I love long evenings sitting out with a glass of wine in a beer garden, autumn marks the beginning of the time when it's acceptable to cancel evening plans and stay in to watch a film under a blanket. So if you can’t be warmed by the weather here are the best British comedies on Amazon Prime which are sure to warm your heart.
When it comes to comedy, I don’t really discriminate. Give me an old black and white movie like Some Like it Hotor the latest Disney film and I'm a happy girl. However, it's undeniable that American and British humour differs massively. There something about watching Bridget Jones giving that speech at the Kafka book launch in a bid to impress Daniel Cleaver that cuts to the very core of what it is to be British. It's funny because it's uncomfortable, rings true, or is highly relatable. British humour is self-deprecating, sarcastic, dry and, in my humble opinion, no one can do it quite like us. So as the weather gets progressively more gloomy here are the seven British comedies on Amazon Prime that will have you laughing all the way through to Halloween.
