Are all the great comedy characters inherently selfish?

Is that their defining characteristic.

Apart from maybe the really thick ones.

Have a think about that and what is says about you.


No kids programmes


Bilko - selfish
George/Larry - selfish
Partridge - selfish
Hank - selfish

Those are the big four/five, so yeah.

You seem pretty caring

is selfishness the DEFINING part of Partridge though? Not sure.

is he REALLY stupid? Not sure.
