Subject: The 1960's Comedy Thread

Written By: AL-B Mk. III on 10/17/13 at 12:57 pm

So I was thinking we could have a series of threads where we can post our favorite comedic material from each decade. There is no limit on what type of media you can use. It can range from YouTube clips of television and radio shows or movies, to cartoons and comedic art. Just whatever you think is funny.  ;)

Abbott & Costello ~ Who's on first?

From wiki, "Who's On First" dates back to March 1938:

"The team's first known radio appearance was on The Kate Smith Hour in February 1938. Initially, the similarities between their voices made it difficult for listeners (as opposed to stage audiences) to tell them apart due to their rapid-fire repartee. The problem was solved by having Costello affect a high-pitched childish voice. "Who's on First?" was first performed for a national radio audience the following month."

looks like I got the wrong thread. I meant to put it in the pre 1960s comedy thread instead of the 1960s comedy thread.  ;D

Sorry Abbott and costello!  ;D

The Class Sketch is a comedy sketch first broadcast in an episode of David Frost's satirical comedy programme The Frost Report on 7 April 1966. It has been described as a "genuinely timeless sketch, ingeniously satirising the British class system" and in 2005 was voted number 40 in Channel Four's "Britain's 50 Greatest Comedy Sketches". It was written by Marty Feldman and John Law, and features John Cleese, Ronnie Barker and Ronnie Corbett.

Strictly speaking, not 1960's vintage (1957)...but it's timeless!

Timeless? Well, what time is it?  ;)

Released in August 1963, "Hello Muddah, Hello Fadduh (A Letter from Camp)" is a Grammy Award-winning novelty song by Allan Sherman and Lou Busch, based on letters of complaint Allan received from his son Robert while Robert attended Camp Champlain in Westport, New York. The song is a parody that complains about the fictional "Camp Granada" and is set to the tune of Amilcare Ponchielli's "Dance of the Hours".
