If you grew up with these folks you had
an interesting childhood…
Brian Regan with a comedy classic from his
first recording, Brian Regan Live!
It’s a very funny piece, especially if you’ve
seen that 60s show, Flipper.
And Gentle Ben for that matter…
Shel Silverstein wrote and performs this great piece.
For those that think war is a ridiculous endeavor and
that all war is failed diplomacy, Shel nails it…
Tome Lehrer with a classic piece about the military
and all its peripherals!
I chose to play the one with the intro, Tom was in
the military and he speaks about it before the song…
This is a superb scene from one of the funniest
television series ever produced.
I have very little respect for the medium, especially
American TV, but the British have always had a higher
standard and have produced some of the best
programming on the planet.
Blackadder is one such production.
As smart as anything you’ll see on the tube, top
notch acting and great chemistry between Rowan
Atkinson and the supporting cast.
The series, set in four different time periods, starts
in the late 1400s and ends during the World War One era.
Every single episode but one had me laughing out loud.
This is the last scene from the last episode of the series.
As poignant as anything ever aired, and what makes this so
incredible is that the series could have ended with a
humorous bang, that’s what people expected and that’s
what should have happened.
But it didn’t.
The producers, and Rowan Atkinson, chose to make a statement…
Andy Hendrickson is a great stand-up comedian
that I give tons of air time to, he’s a very funny guy!
This piece has him touching on office politics,
messages to the troops and drinking preferences…
