And Now For Something COMPLETELY Different…

I know the post about Morgan was much heavier than the normal fare served around here…but, it’s important. I’m going to leave the badge on the sidebar, and I ask you all to please consider adding it to your pages. I’m sure I’ll still Tweet to get the word out, but I won’t hijack the blog anymore. Thanks for your cooperation and indulgence. Back to our regularly scheduled merriment.

So, in an attempt to lighten the overall mood…and because I watched a Monty Python Documentary on IFC this past week, I’ve decided to do a Comedy Shuffle. Well, not really a shuffle, because playlist.com didn’t have some of the things I have in my collection, and vice versa. We’ll just call it a compilation.

Now, some are songs…some are standup…some are clips from sketch comedy. (They didn’t have “The Argument Clinic” OR “The Dead Parrot”, the bastards.)   Now that I’ve made the list, I’ve thought of twenty more I should have included.  Oh, well – next time.

WARNING: Many, many of these are offensive on more than a few levels. Just be glad that I consciously left off the Richard Pryor, okay? Look, I didn’t write the material – I just laugh at it. If you ARE easily offended…well, the Bill Cosby and the Abbott and Costello are safe.

I suppose I could put all the links in…but, it’s Sunday and I’m tired.  Besides, I check, and 99% of you don’t click on the links I put in, anyway.  So, you 1% are on your own today.

Laughter: it’s good for the soul.   I’m going to get another cup of cocoa and a Ghost Shaped sugar cookie, put my feet up and laugh.  I’ll assume you all (and the world) are laughing with me.

Monty Python
If you don’t like Monty Python, or don’t “get” British Humor in general…well, don’t tell me. I don’t want to be disappointed in you. They’re absolutely brilliant, and Life of Brian and Holy Grail are both on my Top Ten Movies of all time list. That’s TWENTY PERCENT, people.

Eddie Izzard
I absolutely adore Eddie Izzard. He’s a fabulous talent, and he looks fabulous in heels. Most importantly, he’s a fabulous human…he ran something like thirty marathons in a month this summer (not in heels)…totally not kidding…for charity.

Eddie Murphy
I’ve never been a huge Eddie Murphy fan per se. Loved him in Trading Places, and can’t deny his talent, but I’ve never gone out of my way for him, y’know? But, this particular sketch cracks me slap up.

Bill Cosby

EVERYBODY loves The Cos. I am no exception. I had the entire “Himself” album memorized as a kid.

Mitch Hedberg
Gone too soon. (sigh)

Adam Sandler
Um…he’s like a little brother.  You love him…but he can get annoying.  But, family is family.

George Carlin
The absolute master.  No, I may not agree with everything he says (same goes for ALL these comics), but dammit, I respect the hell out of the way he put it all together!  RIP, Mr. Carlin.

george-carlin-goofy

Steven Wright
Dude.  All I can do is shake my head and chortle.  I love SW.

Abbott & Costello
I can recite this entire routine from memory.  Yes, both parts. Even when I’m drunk.

Robin Williams
Nuttier than great Aunt Edna’s Fruitcake, but a helluvalot of fun to watch.  And, dude is an EPIC perspirer.

Chris Rock
I used to really dislike him…but, he’s sort of grown on me.  Like mold.  Those freakishly long fingers are really distracting, though – sheese.

chris_rock10

Dave Chappelle
Well, he’s just something, isn’t he?  Bless his heart!

Steve Martin
Plays a mean banjo.  And Dirty Rotten Scoundrels?  CLASSIC.  I was actually singing this very song in the shower yesterday…

SNL
How can you not LOVE Saturday Night Live?  I mean, even the shitty seasons… it’s still SNL.  I was pissed they didn’t have JT doing “Omletteville”…

Will Ferrell

He’ll ALWAYS be Buddy the Elf to me…

Bob and Doug MacKenzie
How’s it goin’ , hoser?  LOL Rick Moranis and Dave Thomas.  They taught me about touques and back bacon, eh?

strangebrew

Mike Myers
SchaWING! Hysterical genius.

Billy Connolly
I SWEAR, he must be related somewhere way back to John Cleese.  Seriously – am I the only one who sees the resemblance?  And I don’t even hear the foul stuff in this song – I’m just listening to the rippling brook that is that yummy Scottish accent..

connellycleese

Bill Maher
He at turns pisses me slap off and makes me wet my pants laughing.  (Well, okay, not literally wet my pants…)  But, y’know what?  He makes me think.

Stephen Colbert/Jon Stewart
…in 2012.  That’s a hell of a ticket!  (And you may quote that for truthiness.)

Gene Wilder/Young Frankenstein
“Frau BLUCHER!  *whinny*”  “Frankenstein?  No, it’s FRANKensteen.  Igor?  No, it’s EYEgor…”  bwahahaha!  I’ve encorporated “Could be worse, could be raining.” into my personal lexicon.

Bill Bailey
Thanks, Greg!

Flight of the Conchords
Fair warning, beetches.  Jemaine is MINE. (psst.  on the right…)

      D’OH! *facepalm* HOW could I forget Spinal Tap?? (Which then opens up all sorts of other possibilities…”Best in Show”, “Waiting for Guffman”, “A Mighty Wind”…)

      Yeah, I’m DEFINITELY going to have to do this again…

    Maybe we should do a best of Spinal Tap. It’ll give me an excuse to watch the sequel.

    You had me at Monty Python!

    Generally I don’t learn article on blogs, but I wish to say that this write-up very forced me to take a look at and do so! Your writing taste has been surprised me. Thanks, quite great post.
