British TV Comedies Streaming on Netflix

My chronic pain sometimes takes me completely out of commission. At that point, there's only one thing to do: steam British comedies on Netflix.


An oldie but goodie! Rowan Atkinson (of Mr. Bean fame) plays essentially the same character, placed in different time periods each season.

Coupling (TV Series 2000–2004)

With Jack Davenport, Gina Bellman, Sarah Alexander, Kate Isitt. On average, men and women think about sex every six seconds. Shorten that to every second, and you've got Coupling...

The IT Crowd

Geeks of all nations know this gem, but the average American might not. Classic office comedy with a light techie twist.

The Office (U.K.)

The original that inspired the American classic. The British version is even more awkward, and therefore (if you're a British humor fan) funnier.




Starring Simon Pegg of "Shaun of the Dead"), Spaced dances the line between hilarious and painfully awkward... which really aren't that different, in the end.

Red Dwarf

The official website of Red Dwarf, the cult science-fiction comedy show

That Mitchell And Webb Look

Unless you're British, you may never have heard of this sketch show, but it's well worth the "Look."

Watch The Inbetweeners Online | Netflix

You can watch The Inbetweeners instantly on Netflix. Sign up for access to a wide variety of Movies & TV Shows streaming instantly to your TV, computer, tablet or favorite device.

BBC - Comedy - Little Britain

The Official BBC website for Little Britain. Find video clips, audio clips, interviews and the Lou and Andy Game; part of the BBC Comedy web site.




I hope this space-themed office-type comedy returns to the world of Netflix streaming soon! I miss it greatly.

Bottom | Netflix

Bottom - Rik Mayall and Adrian Edmondson's anarchic sitcom about two crude, perverted lunatics with no jobs, very little money and only a filthy flat in Hammersmith revels in its cartoonish violence and juvenile japes.
