I have tried to watch a decent amount of British TV, as one of my best friend's family are from England. And I must say, I just do not find it funny 90% of the time. There are some funny bits in some of it, but for the most part Americans and Brits have wildly different senses of humor from my experience. Also, of course it is difficult to find something funny if you don't understand the culture it is referencing, and some of the slang and words being used.

It's true.. Some things just don't translate.. Who was that American comedian that used to just shout things? Can't remember his name.. But you lot thought he was hilarious - and he would fill stadiums..

It's not supposed to make sense; Vic and Bob are largely surrealist in their comedy. It doesn't make sense over here (or anywhere on Earth), either, and that's why it's funny!! Particularly in the context of a 'game show.'
