Danny Williams is fearful the 'humorless' British won't find him amusing and attempt to tell jokes to an assortment of random fellows (a cab driver, the doorman, etc.) gets no laughter.
How about Danny's jokes stink regardless?
"We got worse traffic in NY. A man is hit every five minutes. And he's getting tired of it."
Maid: "Shall I starch your shirts?" Danny: "Yes." Maid: "How about your wife?" Danny: "Okay, but she may not like it."
These aren't hysterical falling-down jokes by a longshot, especially for people who have freakin' jobs to do!
Danny is brought before a club to see if he can join; group of humorists or something.
They question him about his heritage and other things and seem to disapprove. He takes offense.
Without a doubt, the funniest bit was the interrogating trio asking who nominated Danny for their club and then they start going who nominated the guy for their club who nominated Danny?
They then further proceed to wonder who nominated the guy who nominated the guy who nominated Danny?
Danny is outraged and gives a tired speech (Ironically something very similar to Kevin Kline's speech in A Fish Called Wanda about the British as well to John Cleese's wife, and then she out-does him with, well, thank you for protecting us!) and is met with applause by a crowd standing nearby.
Danny returns to the group to find out they were putting him on.
All in all, a dreadful idea for an episode. I'm not really sure how it was supposed to be taken. I've seen other episodes of this show that just seem to have Danny leap to the wildest assumptions.
I was hoping to enjoy some aspect of this episode's British observation. Beverly HIllbillies venture to the UK was much better.
