Just chanced on PBS rerunning “The Kumars at No. 42”. I’m dying here. Sanjeev Bhaskar, a totally assimilated down to accent anglo-indian has a TV interview show filmed in the back garden. His wildly improbable family - mom, dad and grandma (played by Bhaskar’s real life wife) - with their strong Indian accents and stereotyped mannerisms are a fantastic contrast.

A new fave.

Good comedy travels well, doesn't it? The constant upstaging by the family is brilliant.

You would love Russell Peters.

Or, if it is simply the droll Brit take on assimilation, Omid's new flick "The Infidel" looks like a good watch:

I recently heard that Russell Peters is now the top-grossing comic in the world. Don't know if it's true, but he's certainly funny enough to make it to the top.

It sometimes has a rather fitful journey.
