Welcome to this months feature all about sitcoms and comedies, I watch a lot of them and always have done for as long as I can remember and looking back on them, I have learnt so many life lessons along the way. So I thought why not shine a light on them and share them with the world – some of them are important some of them are silly little things but I think it is always interesting to share. Today’s life lesson comes from – The It Crowd
Life Lesson Learnt: One Liners Are Power!
I really adore the IT Crowd, even all these years later, I can watch it and still find all the same jokes hilarious. Out of everything I have learnt from the IT Crowd I think the main one has been that One Liners and sayings are a powerful thing.
Over the years I have bonded with so many people over saying certain quotes from the show that are relevant to situations and they will know where it is from and it will start a whole conversation about favourite episodes. Who knew sayings ‘Have you turned it on and off again?” would be the reason for so many conversation starters.
Looking back at the show It has a completely different impact on me – it has become a great case study to analyse from an improv perspective. It’s amazing rewatching because the most simple ideas and one liners are the most effective pieces of comedy. Also it is not just what you say it is also about how you deliver the line. It really is a very clever comedy.
