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.
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!
