Comedy 101 Radio 7.9.20

My intent is to play something new (to the show)
every week from here on in.
I’m excited about the prospects, a bevy of great
comedy from Canada is heading my way, as is
some from the lower forty-eight.
After some serious editing I should be able to
get at least a few every week that’s fresh.
Some great comedy blocks this week, I went
with Death, Fishing, Attraction, and Summertime.
And yes, I do realize that I have “issues”.
Went with a couple of Bob Gibson pieces, written
by Shel Silverstein of course.
Jerry Reed, Certified Guitar Player, and one of the
Old Dogs with a funny smoking tune.
I can’t believe I played that Fred Blassie piece.
Dr. Hook kicked butt.
A VERY funny song by Heywoods Banks!
Kathleen Madigan with one of the funniest bits
I’ve ever heard from her.
Poor Jim Stafford!
The late, great Kevin Meaney was a dirty, dirty man.
I hope you’re all having a great Summer so far!
Onward and upwards…

Jesus Loves Me

But He Can’t Stand You!
I love this tweak of a song, it lampoons
all the “high and mightys” out there that
claim a higher understanding of religion
than you and I possess.
In other words “The self righteous” among us.
The Austin Lounge Lizards at their best…




Tidying Up

A great comedy sketch from Hale and Pace.
I do so love British humor, usually very
cerebral and well performed.
Watch the wife clean up after him, before
he even uses anything…poof, gone!
Needless to say, my house is NOT spotless…



Greg Vs Restaurants

An absolute classic by Mr. Warren.
I may have posted this before but this version is
very good quality and his timing is as good as it gets.
I very much liked him when he first came out but he
has gotten so much better.
A top notch stand-up comedian, by any measure…


Home Sweet Mobile Home

The New Duncan Imperials with a tune about
living high, with all the perks, in a large mansion,
overlooking a sprawling golf course.
Actually no, nothing could be further from the truth.
As all my friends can attest, I lie horribly on days
ending with a WHY?
The song is really about living low on the hog, not high.
They paint a great picture…
