    Hi!

    I'm looking for the third series of Katy Brand's Big Ass Show if anybody has it? I have other comedies to trade, if that's any help? Or will pay for a copy!

    Thanks for any help in advance! :)

    Yes, so I see. But when I occasionally, hurriedly glance at that Graham Norton Show, Only Way Is Essex or Ali G I think to myself that 'African-American Cultural' fads are taking root in britain.

    What interests me is how they casually introduce the word 'ass' into almost every sentence. It doesn't mean 'rectum' to them but it seems to represent 'self'. I wonder how the British Kay Brand uses it?
