What's your favourite comedy (movie clips, stand-up, scenes from TV series etc)?

I'll start off with this short movie where Laurel visits Hardy in hospital.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5uh_j_GpCHA

This next clip (the two Ronnies) is considered to be a comedy classic. It should translate over the Atlantic. Acting is brilliant in both clips.

Unbelievable this next clip. You may recognise Rowan "Mr Bean" Atkinson before international fame struck;

The age of the youtube prank. "6 foot 'gator" haha.

The "ptshhhh" ha these pranks look genuine. A lot of pranks use actors which should be a crime. That rap is great.

My favourite joke is by Bob Monkhouse. Unfortunately I can't find a clip, but here it is:

“People used to laugh at me when I said I wanted to be a comedian. Well, they're not laughing now.”

Not forgetting another of his:

"I'd like to die like my old dad, peacefully in his sleep, not screaming like his passengers."

Yeah Monkhouse can be good. There's a live concert on youtube. Two brilliant jokes in it 1) when he introduces the band and says "----- is the leader of the band...he's four bars ahead of everyone else."..something like that. and 2) "Are you having a good time?!! Inform your face!!" Just brilliant. Actually 1) it's 7m40s here;

Must admit he veers towards offensiveness now and again in that show.

Most of what i like will be very familiar (Spinal Tap, Monty Python, Bonzo Dog Band, Richard Pryor), but here are two things from American acid-surrealist comedy group The Firesign Theatre, first their AC shout-out, "Duke Of Madness Motors" from the Dear Friends compilation of their radio shows, and then side A of their New-Age/saucer-cult/Don Juan send-up Everything You Know Is Wrong.

I think Monty Python's Flying Circus is far superior to their feature films, definitely a favourite.

For stand up we have a radio station here that plays nothing but that so I have discovered some I like, Jimmy Carr, Patton Oswalt and a few others.

Rodney Dangerfield bit slays but does not include his two best, probably "too blue for the room" as they say:

"I got no luck, i went into one of them massage parlors... It was self-service!"

"I get no respect in the home. My daughter saw me naked, walked in on me in the shower. She said 'Daddy, it's just like a penis, only smaller!'"

I wish i could find a clip of the classic Richard Pryor "A white dude gave me some acid once" routine. He did it it on Saturday Night Live in 1975, but all i can find is a weirdly colored version, or just audio, sans facial expressions, flapping arms etc. which loses most of the bit.

And here, in its entirety, is episode one, season one, of America's finest country music 'n' corny jokes revue: yes, i mean Hee-Haw. Be sure to catch series host Buck Owens (yes, that Buck Owens, along with co-host yes, that Roy Clark) tear shit up on his country-fuzztone classic "Who's Gonna Mow Your Grass?" at 50:01, but all cleaned up with no nasty fuzz to upset the TV audience)

Chris Morris, Jam. Sometimes more video art installation than comedy sketch, the influence of his 'aesthetic' on a tv programming/ advertising world attempting to be edgy has been huge.

Stan brings Ollie hard boiled eggs and nuts. Ollie seems to think that these two items are particularly ridiculous, and he remarks on them several times.

The way I understand it is simply that the various shells might slip inside his plaster cast. Is there more to it than that?

I have a feeling that there might be something 1930s and American that I am missing.

Tiger has a different idea of comedy than some.

Back when i was among the professoriate, i used to call my teaching style "stand-up tragedy".

While i am no fan of the band whose secret name is said to be the "Rear-Entry Men" (aka "The American Smiths"), that video translated less well to this Yankee than the Yorkshire Airlines ad. This ad could easily be about any southern or New England state with minor changes,and a new narrator.

You (david) should watch the Hee-Haw episode i posted above for the US version of this sort of redneck/country humor (plus bad puns in the US case).

Here is an old family favorite, "No News: Or What Killed The Dog". We used to listen to this on a scratchy old 78 record, but here it is with cleaned up audio:

I watched bits of it. There's only so much bluegrass/country music I can take. Not really my cup of tea humour-wise. The Clampet's series yes, very funny.

Did you find the Yorkshire man excerpts amusing?

Richard Pryor amazing. That part of the standup show where he impersonates the white couple coming back from the intermission to find a big tall black guy sitting in their seat haha brilliant.

Since david mentions The Clampets [sic- the name's Clampett, son!] which i assume means The Beverly Hillbillies (perhaps it was re-titled in the UK?), here is the theme song from Green Acres, a show that was a spin-off from Beverly Hillbillies spin-off Petticoat Junction. They spun 'em hard in them days.

Green Acres might be about my life: a couple composed of an All-American middle-aged lawyer (me) married to an exotic foreign woman with a heavy accent (the wife), move from NYC to Hicksville, USA. Comedy ensues (perhaps less so in real life).

https://youtu.be/umS3XM3xAPk

Actually we did not live on Park Avenue. And of course it was actually the wife's idea to move out of the city, but you get the idea.

All three shows (The Beverly Hillbillies, Petticoat Junction, and Green Acres) were cancelled in the "rural purge" of "hick" comedies in 1971. I was very sad; thankfully they lived on in re-runs for many years.

Hee-Haw also got axed from network TV in the '71 "rural purge", but immediately went into syndication (since it had not just comedy but the country music david does not dig yet because he is still a square), with new shows appearing til... 1997.

I like James Adomian's parodies of Sebastian Gorka, sounds much like him:

"Chapo Trap House - Gorka phone call": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QbQx0NTV4TU

"Chapo Trap House - Gorka Phone Call II": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=USdINAnBf0U

"Chapo Trap House - Gorka Phone Call #3": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n0mQzTDDD8w&list=PLky3iiRPpSdhpiWvT9jrcPIxTqK1kqV5O&index=5

"Sebastian Gorka (James Adomian) PROJECT GORKA!!!" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nglVo9rj2Nk&list=PLky3iiRPpSdhpiWvT9jrcPIxTqK1kqV5O

"SEBASTIAN GORKA ON THE RUN!!! (James Adomian)": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L1_Rx_wpcG4

Difficult choice. Music section or comedy section?

Fun Fun Fun in the fluffy chair
Flame up the herb
Woof down the beer
Hi
I'm your video DJ
I always talk like I'm wigged out on quaaludes
I wear a satin baseball jacket everywhere I go
My job is to help destroy
What's left of your imagination
By feeding you endless doses
Of sugar-coated mindless garbage

Why thank you, WRWB.

Who does like gannets, after all?

There was, in 1971, a TV series trying to be Monty Python called The Marty Feldman Comedy Hour. My dad could never grasp that these were two different TV shows his sons watched and quoted obsessively, and referred to the one show he thought we were watching as Marty Python, and would say things like "i think that Marty Python man is on drugs."

The store in the first skit reminded me of my first job in a hippy science fiction/comix bookstore. When i turned 14 and was old enough to work legally, the brothers who owned it asked me "If we gave you a job, would you consider not stealing from us any more?" I accepted, and of course they got all my wages back selling me books (at a huge discount) and, um, dried flowers.

What I find particularly irksome is that I have just seen Stan & Ollie with Steve Coogan and a gentleman.

A big deal is made of the "Hard Boiled Eggs & Nuts" scene, as if it were the funniest thing Stan & Ollie ever did. And the audience (in the film) collapse with laughter into the theatre aisles at the very mention of "hard boiled eggs and nuts".

What is the joke?

The funniest thing anyone has posted, i think. About busted a gut on the "goat's milk on your private parts" line.

However, i fear you may provide an invasion of indignant Scandinavian "Left Hand Path" aspirants, and the consequent need for all sorts of digital banishings and waving smudge sticks at the laptop screen etc.

Allen O'Brien: i share your bafflement. whatever he joke is, it is a very popular one- the biggest Laurel and Hardy site is (sort of) named after it:

http://laurelandhardycentral.com/

Perhaps you can get them to explain? If so, do please let us in on the joke.

Finally, with apologies for crap video quality, and the fact that it is green, the only video version i can find of the classic Richard Pryor "A white dude gave me some acid once..." routine.

https://www.dailymotion.com/video/xatuh0

There are audio only versions on youtube, but you really need to see his body and face to get the full effect. All us wayward kids, black, Latin, white, Chinese and Cherokee Indian alike, had this one memorized and quoted it often, back when this was on Saturday Night Live in 1975 and on a record.

Sadly, the video leaves out the first couple lines of the routine:

White dudes take acid. They do. They take acid and go see “The Exorcist.” They crazy. [into "A white gave me some acid once...]

Perhaps dom might be able to explain more fully, as he started the thread off and used this actual clip as the leading example of what he thinks is his favourite comedy. For my part, the humour seems to lie in the fact that hard boiled eggs and nuts are about the most unappetising food Stan could have brought in: relatively tasteless fare with an unpleasant/hard texture and shells needing to be dealt with afterwards which otherwise might get uncomfortably caught up in the bedsheets, etc. As Ollie remarked, why couldn't you just have brought me some nice candy instead?

The comedy appears to lie in the juxtaposition (along with Ollie's disgusted reactions, expression & timing); but as with many jokes, a lot of the humour falls flat and gets lost in the explaining!

Meanwhile, for 'druggy' humour here's something else from the 70s which many will probably already be familiar with. Ideally one should add sensimilla in order to savour to the fullest (altho' naturally I am not encouraging anybody to do anything naughty or illegal or both):

I think you're overthinking it. Ollie's character doesn't like eggs but his buffoon of a friend has brought him eggs because he doesn't listen or think.

@lashtal

Perfect time to close the music thread after When The Curtain Falls.
Goodbye, baby. Goodbye.🎶
What a finish.

I wanted to mention there was one song in my posts that I thought you might enjoy, if you hadn't heard it.
It was in that final music post. Joanna Newsom's Sawdust and Diamonds End of the Road Festival 2011.
Something about the lyrics and playing made me think of you when I first heard it about 5 years ago. Who knows, you just might hate it.

O, then I see Queen Mab hath been with you.
She is the fairies' midwife, and she comes
In shape no bigger than an agate stone
On the forefinger of an alderman,
Drawn with a team of little atomies
Over men's noses as they lie asleep;
Her wagon spokes made of long spinners' legs,
The cover, of the wings of grasshoppers;
Her traces, of the smallest spider web;
Her collars, of the moonshine's wat'ry beams;
Her whip, of cricket's bone; the lash, of film;
Her wagoner, a small grey-coated gnat,
Not half so big as a round little worm
Pricked from the lazy finger of a maid;
Her chariot is an empty hazelnut,
Made by the joiner squirrel or old grub,
Time out o' mind the fairies' coachmakers.
And in this state she gallops night by night
Through lovers' brains, and then they dream of love;
O'er courtiers' knees, that dream on curtsies straight;
O'er lawyers' fingers, who straight dream on fees;
O'er ladies' lips, who straight on kisses dream,
Which oft the angry Mab with blisters plagues,
Because their breaths with sweetmeats tainted are.
Sometimes she gallops o'er a courtier's nose,
And then dreams he of smelling out a suit;
And sometimes comes she with a tithe-pig's tail
Tickling a parson's nose as 'a lies asleep,
Then dreams he of another benefice.
Sometimes she driveth o'er a soldier's neck,
And then dreams he of cutting foreign throats,
Of breaches, ambuscadoes, Spanish blades,
Of healths five fathom deep; and then anon
Drums in his ear, at which he starts and wakes,
And being thus frighted, swears a prayer or two
And sleeps again. This is that very Mab
That plats the manes of horses in the night
And bakes the elflocks in foul sluttish hairs,
Which once untangled much misfortune bodes.
This is the hag, when maids lie on their backs,
That presses them and learns them first to bear,
Making them women of good carriage.
This is she!

My will is fate.

The 1986 crime/drama film River's Edge, meant to evoke some Dostoevskian condemnation of teenage nihilism, is one of the funniest films I've ever seen.

I was always amused by the excellent Irish comedian Dave Allen's irreverent sketches, particularly his series of coffin sketches. This short one is definately up there with the top ten

And this one is absolutely hilarious

I am also an afficionado of the late, great mult-talented comedian Kenny Everett - who abandoned working for the BBC after they apparently felt he was a little too "risque" and moved to ITV

This link shows his abilities very well - the cognocenti on this site will appreciate the goat sketch with the big yin Sir William Connolly, CBE
