re: Weekly Comedy Show

What a lovely idea Brechinite. Remember I come from another century, and I wondered if a sweet voice from the past might be of some interest to some oldsters. This is John Denver
and you'll need to skip the ads that pop up.(Moderator-could you make it clickable please)
Enjoy,
Dan C.

Dani:-

I like it.

Do you like Classical Music or Opera or the likes of Sinatra, Dean Martin, Perry Como or Andy Williams?

I can listen to most types of music other than todays stuff or Jazz.

I don't know why I dislike Jazz it may be as a small boy my granny played Cleo Laine and Johnny Dankworth incessantly!!

I love my comedy programmes as well and shall endeavour to put a few links up in the coming weeks.

re: Weekly Comedy Show

Brechinite- I'm an old hillbilly country boy, and favor the country and folk stuff. My girl was the sophisticate part of our team, favoring classical music, ballet, opera and lectures. I favored her, so all worked out great. We were hippies together, and socialites when we needed to be. Sinatra, Dean Martin, Perry Como, Andy Williams all acceptable of course, but not the first choice over Country & Folk.(Also a fan of Benny Hill and Monty Python).

I wonder if you might like Johnny Cash? Try this:

As a child growing up, on Saturday evening's my multiple brothers and sisters would find small spaces beside our parents and watch great comedians and raconteurs in variety shows on a tiny tv. One such gentleman just happened to find his way into my watch list on YouTube. I watched this video, and loved every single minute of it. I then watched the second half, which was just as good. Treat yourself and take time to enjoy the entire show. Have fun.

re: Weekly Comedy Show

On the subject of the weekly comedy show:

There is an ongoing (in)famous philatelic joke in Turkey.
When trying to pick up a girl, the man says to the woman, "Let me show you my stamp collection."

This little tidbit is seriously discussed in a film by Umit Topaloglu, which can be accessed on YouTube: Bir Filateli Oykusu--A Philately Story, 2010. 45:34 minutes.

The collectors interviewed also walk on egg shells when politics invade a supposedly innocuous hobby discussion. Remember who became the most important political man in Turkish politics in 2010.

ArtStamp,

Thanks for sharing the video from Turkey showing people talking about stamp collecting, both collectors and dealers. It was very interesting hearing about stamp collecting from a very different part of the world. I found the video by searching YouTube using the initial part of the title "Bir Filateli Oykusu" as a search term if others are interested as well.

One of the best parts of pulling up the video was seeing a huge range of additional videos about stamp collecting from all over the world.

re: Weekly Comedy Show

I love British comedy.... I actually purchased a multiregion DVD player recently so I could re-watch some of the "classics" without subscribing to multiple streaming services. As a teen, I was exposed to several great shows via PBS, like 'Allo 'Allo, Are You Being Served?, the Blackadder series, and others. MTV carried The Young Ones for a while, and about five years ago, I discovered Dylan Moran's Black Books.

There is an acerbic wit to Britcoms that makes them so much different than American TV comedy. Thankfully, I was also able to get my fix of more current Doctor Who and Sherlock via BBC America here in the States.

I also love Canadian comedies like Corner Gas, Kids in the Hall, and the like. The only Michael Moore project I can stomach is "Canadian Bacon", with the late John Candy as a Niagara Falls (US side) sheriff who mounts a guerilla mission into Canada to rescue his girlfriend from free health care at a hospital in the nation's capital (you know, Toronto...)
One of the finest scenes is when Candy is pulled over on the QEW in a stolen Public Works truck, which he has grafittoed with Anti-Canadian slogans. Dan Ackroyd plays an OPP motorcycle cop, who produces a can of spray paint, and orders him to duplicate all of the graffiti in French to comply with their bilingual signage requirements.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dDGkQiwh_qg
Do you know how to spell "Canada"? C-eh-N-eh-D-eh !!!
Happy Canada Day to all my friends north of the border!!!!!

Musicman,

My grandfather was friends with Foster Brooks (they had worked in radio together in Rochester, NY). I met him at Grandpa's funeral in 1985, and was very confused to discover that he hadn't really had a drink in more than twenty years!
Thanks for posting that one, every time I see "The Lovable Lush", I think of my grandfather.... (that doesn't sound like it should be a good thing, but it is...)

The words Jings! Crivvens! Help Ma Boab! are used singly or as a group in cartoons from The Sunday Post Newspaper. They started in 1936 and are still running today.

The two cartoons are "Oor Wullie" and "The Broons"

Vic:- Thanks for reminding me of that one.

Of course Kenneth Williams was in so many radio shows like Round the Horne, Beyond our Ken, Hancocks Half Hour to name a few, and most of the Carry On films.

His role as Julius Caesar in Carry On Cleo was superb and his immortal lines of

"Infamy! Infamy! They've all got it in fer me!"

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pNOHxktvo58&list=PLKbM5tuuJbfonH4kr8C3pdOmhu8dfdZBZ&index=2

and in Carry On Don't Lose Your Head he played "Camembert"....the big cheese.

Sheepshanks:- many, many moons ago I was having dinner with one of my suppliers and all through the meal we talked about various comedy shows that we liked and we covered quite a few from radio and television.

Near the end of the meal we realised that every comedy show we discussed had been produced by the BBC and not one from ITV had got even a fleeting mention.

There were a few that I recall from ATV/ITV, The Arthur Haynes show, Benny Hill, Canned Carrot although not sure whether some were BBC, but certainly for quality and production they were no where near the beeb.
Charlie Drake, Tony Hancock, Jimmy Edwards in take it from here (ello, ello, ello), the navy lark and of course all the radio shows with Kenneth Horne and Kenneth Williams.
The one memorable thing about all of them is that there was no coarse language and no taking the rise out of some poor soul in the audience.

Apparently one of the stage construction crew had "repaired" the book case he was thrown through, not realising it had been deliberately weakened. The cast then followed the script and picked him up and threw him through a window.
You can see in the video that he is a dead weight as they struggle to lift him.
