while binge-watching Daisy May Cooper's 'Am I Being Unreasonable', I realized how much television lacks the brilliant fresh comedy of today.
Monty Python's Flying Circus was created by a group of talented writers and actors in 1969.
Its complex comedy style and featuring John Cleese was a massive hit. There is no way to make today's television that crude because it would be too rude, so where does that leave productions who love to give that little extra to comedy?
Daisy May Cooper's genius sketches have again enlightened us with true comedy, Giving us 'This Country', which Daisy co-wrote with her brother Charlie., about the lives and experiences of young people in modern, rural Britain.
Daisy grew up in the West Country alongside her sibling Charlie and found fame starring with Martin Clunes in Dr Martin. Her career would go on to portray some excellent characters, bringing charm and sarcasticness threw into the mix.
The comic performances of Cooper remain absurdly brilliant. Am I Being Unreasonable? It is a must-watch, and there's no other reason than it's just pure genius.
There is no filter to this original, beautifully written crude comedy; It's available to watch on BBC iplayer: https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episodes/m001c3f9/am-i-being-unreasonable.
Daisy quotes, "I am so grateful every day to do a job that I love. That is the key to life and what I would like to teach my daughter: do something you love and even if you're not good at it, blag it."
