A Bit of Fry and Laurie

It was a British comedy series starring Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie (known nowadays as Dr. House) that was broadcast by the BBC between 1989 and 1995.
It seems that Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie met while they were undergraduates at Cambridge University. Their shared sense of humour immediately clicked, forging a comic partnership that became one of the strongest and most enduring in Britain across the 80s and 90s.

As in all great double acts both performers had something individual to offer, be it Fry’s love of language and delight in innuendo or Laurie’s ability to parody musical genres at the piano. (Source: http://www.bbc.co.uk)

British humor can be a bit difficult for Spanish people since they use references to English slang terms or people for example, who are unknown internationally. But here there are two sketches that I find particularly amusing.
