I was surprised at the number of people who said they did not enjoy comedies last week. I am always grateful for a laugh-for a Charles Willeford book or a movie like Shaun of the Dead.
But if I look back to my childhood, it's very different. Which early comics did you find funny? For me, not very many. I never laughed at Jackie Gleeson, Jack Benny or Milton Berle. I think I would have probably enjoyed Mike Nichols and Elaine May but they were before my time. Also never a fan of the Carol Burnett show or Lucille Ball. Monty Python was only sporadically funny although I love Fawlty Towers. Bill Cosby's albums were funny as were Bob Newhart's.
Who made you laugh from that earlier era?Who makes you laugh now?
