Comedic Inspirations
Why are comedians important to society?

They often say and do what most of us can´t! They are agents or mediums of catharsis. Humor literally helps our bodies release positive neurochemicals that make us feel better.

My favorite childhood comedian was this guy:

“Fat guy in a little coat...”

I always liked John Candy in the movie Uncle Buck. I always loved the Hatched Scene. Sometimes we can get overprotective of our loved ones.

Yep, they really don´t make shows like that at all anymore - and haven´t in forever....no need big "dramas" and suspense ...just them usually in the living room having comedic dialogue. That´s how you know Carroll O´Connor and all - were truly great actors.

That´s why I love All in the family, not only could it make me laugh - which barely any shows have ever done..but the serious episodes - defintiely made me shed a tear. On more than one occasion.

Archie was truly lovable at heart....Carroll was a great pick for the character - he´s just a big lovable teddy bear to me. ;)

I always thought that if Edith loved Archie, he HAD to be a good guy deep down...

Yes, she was a "dingbat", but she was a very ethical person and had a huge heart...

The moral compass--and ultimately the authority--of the family...

Despite all Archie´s blustering, on the rare occasions when Edith put her foot down and decided how something was gonna go... That´s how it went...when she has a deep conviction about something...watch out...

They don´t write characters like that anymore

They certainly worked well comedically together!

Edith is the icing on the cake. she cracks me up as much as Archie.

They all worked really well together....great chemistry between all.

Well I can´t say I agree with Arch about everything...

That being said, alot of Meathead´s views are pretty meatheaded too...

Actually, what irks me more about meathead is his complete lack of humor regarding his views...and the preachy self-righteousness... Blechh...

Obviously excellent foils for eachother though...

I can’t say I’m not surprised how old all these clips are with us hanging around. Something a little more to date here that I think you would like. Have you heard of Bill Burr?

I know he wouldn´t at all...the wusses would be "crying in outrage" over a television show :61: :61:

That´s a great clip too... I´ve seen every episode of all in the family...one of my all time favorite shows.

Funny thing is, they know the stuff Archie said is true, but was made out to be unintelligent ...quite the contrary lol

Yeah I love him too...

Grew up with All In The Family...

I don´t think Archie would go over so well today though...we live in over-sensitive times...

Big clue that something is amiss... People forget how to laugh..

Alright...tell me this guy wasn’t important :75: I always learned something from him. The best comedians are philosophers who use comedy to express their ideas.

Monty Python is so key to me and my humor.

So much good British comedy.

Lots of good Canadian humor too. SCTV, Kids in the Hall and Trailer Park Boys.

I wish I understood more languages. Humor is difficult to translate.

So it is mostly Comedy from English speaking countries for me.

"Allo, Allo" was created by Jeremy Lloyd and David Croft, the same pair who created "Are You Being Served?". Consequently, it should come as no surprise that the show leaves no depth unplumbed in the pursuit of a laugh. "Allo, Allo" represents British burlesque humor at it´s lowest. On the other hand it is also, for those whose sensibilities are not easily offended, truly one of the funniest shows ever produced.
