Belly shakers and comedic genius.

I grew up a child of television. As a latch key kid there was no one around routinely to monitor what I watched after school and in the evenings my mother was so tired from working all day she never asked me what I was watching because she was just glad I was occupied so she could relax. Because of that I had a very extensive comedic childhood, watching way too many shows I probably shouldn’t have.

Having said that, the shows I watched were comedic gold and my favorites then are still my favorites today. If I happen to catch an errant episode on TV land, I’ll stop whatever I’m channel surfing for and settle in for a good old fashioned guffaw.

My favorites?
Well, I LOVE LUCY jumps to the head of the line. Remember VITAMEATAVEGAMIN?

And who could ever forget the Carol Burnett Show’s spoof, WENT WITH THE WIND?

I can recite every line, every nuance, every word of those two skits. Perfectly.  And when I’m not saying them out loud, I’m laughing out loud. Big, body shaking belly laughs.

Another one? The Robin Williams interview on INSIDE THE ACTORS STUDIO. Watch it and I dare you not to laugh. I double dog dare you!

Recently, I rewatched a comedy classic on Comedy Central, the REDNECK COMEDY TOUR. I will admit, I am almost embarrassed about how funny I find these guys! And at how loud I laugh when they’re on.

Since this is a blog hop, you might want to stop by these other authors and have a good belly laugh, too!

    I remember not just the shows but the episodes you mentioned. Nobody did comedy better than Lucy, Carol, and Robin. How they never cracked up themselves is a wonder. Fun post.

    Lucy was a true classic, and Carol is a long-time favorite. I don’t think I’ve seen Robin’s interview on Actor’s Studio, but I love that show, so how could I have missed it? Great list. Oh! And Ron White is, for some reason, my favorite of the rednecks 🙂

  5. Great TV list of laugh out loud moments for me too. I still catch Mama on TV sometimes and still laugh out loud. By the way, have fun at RT.

  7. I remember that episode of I Love Lucy. Larry The Cable Guy is the one I know best out of that group, mainly because he’s the voice of Mater from Cars. Hope you’re enjoying Atlanta. Sorry about all the rain this week. We have crazy weather here in the south.
