Saturday Morning Comedy

It's been quite a while since I've posted a series of classic comedy clips, so I felt it was time for another round. We'll start with Moe Howard's classic appearance on the Mike Douglas Show in the mid 1970's. Moe gives Mike and guest Ted Knight lessons on how to properly throw a pie.

What could possibly go wrong?

Next, here is Dom DeLuise's classic Tonight Show appearance, featuring his trick with raw eggs and glasses of water. Johnny Carson, Dom DeLuise, raw eggs ... again, what could possibly go wrong?

Finally, my favorite impressionist, Frank Gorshin, performing one of his best routines ever on the Ed Sullivan show, from the early 1960's. Gorshin does Broderick Crawford, Dean Martin, Anthony Quinn, Marlon Brando, Bert Lancaster, Kirk Douglas, and a wordless Alec Guiness. Sheer genius.

Thanks, Michael.

Good, clean fun that you just don't see in modern comedy.

Timeless, too. My brothers and I practiced all the Three Stooges routines in the 50s. In the 80s, my own kids saw a Three Stooges video and loved it.
