講師 :Laurence DRYDEN ( 愛知淑徳大学 非常勤教授 )
概要 : British humour ranges from high wit to low comedy. YouTube documentaries explain British humour, while many video clips provide examples. Main topics include classic British humor like Monty Python (1969-1974; 1989-2014); animated films like Paddington (2014) and (2017); romantic comedies like Bridget Jones’s Diary (2001); social satire like The Full Monty (1997); stand-up comedians like Ricky Gervais (1982-present); revivals like the BBC drama Sherlock (2010-present) and comic light opera by Gilbert and Sullivan (1871-1896) like The Mikado. We also explore the British love of wordplay, as found in English puns. Students receive a PDF with relevant text, images, and links to online websites and videos clips.
