Best British TV Sitcoms Quiz 😅😂🤣



This CST quiz focuses on what might be considered the 40 Best British TV Sitcoms. I've included sitcoms which are the most popular or memorable (thanks for suggestions), but acknowledge there will be some I have missed. So perhaps start by asking members what their favourite British TV Sitcom is, so as to include them also and avoid disappointment.


You can run the quiz in different ways, but I would recommend showing each photo/slide first and asking members to name the sitcom, then, having lined up the YouTube clips of opening titles (to avoid adverts), play and show the clips to see if members guessed correctly. You could then ask the questions. If you want to slow the session down and make it more fun, you could play the comedy clips from the shows and comedy songs. However, this means the quiz will probably take two sessions to complete.


Hope it goes well. The most important thing is to have fun with it.

Some feedback from your groups would be really helpful.



* Caution * I've tried to include clips which avoid culturally inappropriate or outdated stereotypes, but they are best worth re-checking before playing *
