Teh Funny: Men’s Synchronized Swimming

I don’t know why but I was just thinking of the 1984-85 season of SNL and how I pray they release the whole damn thing to DVD someday.

That was the “hired guns” season where Christopher Guest, Martin Short, Harry Shearer, and Billy Crystal all were cast members. I don’t know how many of them stayed or left after that season but I know that was the only year all four were on the show. I have a beat-up old VHS tape of highlights from that season, including the sketch below.

(I wish SNL would either vastly improve their Hulu offerings or just let fans upload their own old tapes to YouTube. It’s painful to be unable to get good videos of sketches like these easily.)

Teh Funny: Ed Ames on The Tonight Show

This is to me one of the great iconic moments in TV comedy, even though it’s probably not too “PC.” Truly, a legendary one-liner from a legendary host.

Teh Funny: “They’ll Believe Me, Citizen!”

Being an occasional recurring feature in which I share bits of video that make me laugh to beat the band. I have a bunch of ideas for this–just need to track down the videos on YouTube. Maybe I’ll set them up to post over the next few days/weeks on their own so that I can pretend to be updating my blog while I’m actually doing bullshit work.

Here’s Jay Thomas sharing his legendary “Lone Ranger story” with David Letterman.
