That was interesting, but Jimmy Carr and Lou Costello both jumped to mind immediately as exceptions and I bet I could think of dozens more if I put my mind to it. Tim Conway, Don Knotts, Bob Newhart.

Very interesting .... though Ben Stiller more often occupies a middle ground between these two. He does 'get the girl' but he also pretty consistently gets shit upon from a great height as well.

Latest comment: Clearly his generalisations don't apply to every comic from both cultures, but I think he sums up the majority fairly well.

Larry David, Larry Sanders, George from Seinfeld, (George's father, too) Roseanne etc., etc. are not characters just repositories of brilliant one-liners? You need to rethink your argument Stephen. Pablo
