Once I was in hospital and couldn't sleep because it was a hospital bed and there were all manner of horrible noises in the ward and I was in pain and such, so I was watching the overhanging telly thing, and there was a Billy Connolly live show on one of the channels - it was one I'd seen before, but what made it brilliant was that it had someone signing it all too :D
I swear that got me through that night - it was absolutely hilarious.

.. most funny, at least it made me laugh out loud. Have a Woo and a Yay!

On a side note, and I don't know if this observation applies to British television as well, but I once noticed that on Danish TV they had a microphone with the sign language guys. If you turned up the volume on the TV set you could hear all the small clicky dounds and slurpy sounds from the lips and the hands. This always cracked me up since it seemed so utterly pointless.

# haha - I don't think they're wired for sound
in the UK, but I'll be turning up the volume to check...and cheers!
