Brian Regan, one of my all time favorite stand-up comedians
is still going strong, and just about as good as ever.
One of the first to REALLY get me laughing, he has it all,
delivery, material and stage charisma.
Here he is doing a bit about people who don’t see that well.
Are these my GLASSES?!
Bob Gibson was a folk singer who was on the same level of
fame and talent as Bob Dylan, back in the sixties.
His work was groundbreaking, unique and very good.
One of my treasures is a “Best Of” compilation CD of his
where he does just Shel Silverstein songs, and on some
of the tracks Shel sings with him!
Here is Bob doing a funny little ditty called “To Morrow”.
This Monty Python sketch is a favorite of mine.
Almost the entire gang is in this one, everyone but
Set in a mythical Australian outback location, it pokes
fun at Aussies, as well as the British.
Terry Jones is the straight man here, and he plays it well.
Do you mind if we call you Bruce?
And I’m in charge of the sheep dip!
Maryellen Hooper is a great stand-up comedian!
I have seen her live at the Montreal Comedy Festival and
highly recommend her to anyone who likes good comedy.
Here she is talking about being a mom…
Summer is not over, I repeat, Summer is NOT over!
And as such I will not bow down to the gods of fallen leaves
just yet, thank you very much!
This song pretty much sums up my yard.
I’m still looking for the wife!
This one is a classic from Not the 9:00 News.
Seriously, one of the very best comedy sketches ever made.
There is nothing in this era that can touch this.
It is my hope that we will see this quality again.
And the man on the window ledge is…gone!
Tim Wilson is a southern styled comic.
Okay, he’s a redneck…trying to play it fair.
But he’s a good redneck, a funny one with skills
He is a skilled stand-up man as well as a decent
This is a piece that I’ve played on the show many times
and now that I see the video for it I think it’s funnier!
Everyone has a relative like this.
Here’s a nice one from Kathleen Madigan.
Do I really have to say that she’s one of the best
comedians on the circuit and has been for the last
ten years, or so?
Hale and Pace are superb at what they do…comedy sketches!
I love skits that spotlight, and exaggerate, the human
condition in all its glory.
This be one of them.
I would have lost it when she came in the door!
I smoked cigarettes for several years, it was awful!
One of the worst habits a human being could ever indulge in.
When I finally gave it up my health improved greatly.
That is what’s really insidious about smoking, you don’t

This piece is dedicated to all those that smoke.
