The Best of British Comedy 😅😂🤣




Here is another Dementia Cafe style CST activity aimed at promoting recall, reminiscence and enjoyment through visual cues, musical memory and classic comedy clips.


The idea is to print off the fifty pictures for the tables (or handouts of screenshots) and first ask members to link the music clip (or voice) to the British TV sitcom or comedian. Then for each sitcom/comedian there is a question or two to ask to help prompt discussion.


After doing this, and maybe while having a break for refreshments, there is a YouTube playlist linked below to broadcast some of the best and most memorable comedy clips.


Maybe then ask members to agree their top five and best ever British TV sitcoms.


I really hope your members enjoy this one. Please do let me know as feedback means everything to me.
