Re: <--is a racist now
When I was a kid, we would always go to the Catskills. Totie Fields, Hennie Youngman, Shecky Greene etc...would all play there. This was the type of humor.

The very soul of American wit.

I love #11 especially.

Do you think that I should send this to woopflying?
Jan. 13th, 2009 08:44 pm (UTC)
I think he is not ready for high humor. Most of these would fly right over his woop.

I used to go to hotels like Brickman's, Kutcher's, The Raleigh, The Concord, et al and see similar comedians. One who you haven't mentioned was Morty Gunty(sp), he never really made it big nationally, but he was a regular in the Borscht Belt.

It's great stuff.

Number 7 sounds just like my great-aunt, lol.

You see what you miss by growing up on the west coast. The Catskills had these wonderful comedians.

About that...I was born in Virginia, lived in Mississippi for nearly 8 years, then Florida for 6 before moving to Seattle in 2002, then Spokane in 2007. So there. :P

Have you listened to Eddie Izzard?
Jan. 14th, 2009 04:13 am (UTC)
I'm only teasing you.

I've heard of him, but I'm not too familiar with him.

My favorite stand up now is Steven Wright.

My parents weren't good at staying in one place. They passed it on to me, I really look forward to my next move--this time with Dallin. :) Hopefully to New Mexico.

You really should watch him. He's a genius. Not a very attractive transvestite, but hilarious.

I don't know Steven Wright, I'll have to Youtube him.

These are great! :)

Thank you!!

Alright, alright...so we sit down in Egypt. You bring these very funny jokes. We invite a coupla guys over, say, Amos Gilad and Nizzar Rayyan. We eat, we drink, we tell jokes, we poke fun at ourselves, we poke fun at each other. It's all over. No more cemetary visits. Call it a date?
