Veteran comedienne Bea Arthur finds claims of cultural differences between
America and Britain are exaggerated - because people in the US understand irony
just as well as their UK cousins.
The former GOLDEN GIRLS star is currently performing in a one-woman show
at London's SAVOY THEATRE, and thinks that good humour is appreciated
She says, "It is entirely wrong to say that there is any difference
between British and American humour - Americans get irony every bit as much as
a British audience does.
"I'm a huge fan of Eddie Izzard and anyone who says he's not funny is
clearly mad because everything about him is funny."
