A Question For The Weekend

In catching up on my blog reading this week, I saw a question on Mike Cope's blog I thought interesting. I need yall's answers!

What is/was the best TV comedy ever? What about the best Movie comedy?


Denise W said...

Yep, today I'm answering my own question.....

Seinfeld. - It holds up really well-we watch it sometimes and still laugh. (He's a close talker.)

Friends - It still makes me laugh, too. (We were on a break!)

Movie is harder: Leagally Blonde always makes me smile. (I object!)

Animal House can make me laugh just thinking of it. (John Belshei jumping around. The horse dying. Trying to cheer up Flounder.) Maybe I should watch that one today.....

Seinfeld never grows old.

I'm growing a tiny bit weary of Friends, as I think I have seen all of them a couple of times at least, but I still love them.

I have some old Laverne & Shirley on DVD and the slapstick element always brings a laugh.

Movies are harder...Monty Python and the Holy Grail.

I second Monty Python and the Holy Grail for the movie! I always laugh out loud watching Young Frankenstein too.
TV comedy? Hmmm. That's a hard one for me. Good comedy really has to have an edge, you know. And on TV, everything is dulled. Seinfeld comes close, because they often dared venture into the realm of political incorrectness on occasion.

Hey, Denise!

I've been keeping up with your blog, but haven't been commenting till now. I answered this question over on Mike's blog but will give you my same answers.

I think the all time best TV comedy show was ALF! Tom & I loved (and still do) ALF. Talk about funny and really with it. ALF really took some big digs at American culture and got away with it with some big laughs.

We have season 1 & 2 on DVD and the grandkids now love watching ALF and can spend hours laughing at the shows.

One of my favorite comedic movies is Monty Python's "The Life of Brian," which is about the life of this guy who was born the same day Jesus was supposedly and all of his trials and travails. It has tons of good Biblical references and is absolutely hilarious.

I think it's funnier than Monty Python and the Holy Grail, which ranks way up there.

Those are my picks this hot August day.

P. S. I really enjoyed meeting you and Tammy while I was in Abilene and having coffee with you girls. I also loved Tammy's wedding photography and checked out her site and looked at ALL the pictures she had of everyone. Cool!

I have not answered this because it is too hard to decide. But last night we were in a group discussion about some old favorites and a few that were mentioned were: Stir Crazy and Silver Streak with Gene Wilder and Richard Pryor, Planes Tranes and Automobiles, When Harry Met Sally, all though that could be a drama with comedy in it or visa versa.

Television shows: Seinfeld, along with Gilmore Girls, but I can still watch the Carol Burnett show and laugh so hard I cry. Who can forget during the skits where all the actors would be laughing in the background trying to hold face, I think that was funnier than the skits.

OH MY GOSH -- I can't believe I had forgotten the Carol Burnett show! Thank you, Tammy! When I was in 6th grade, I only wanted to BE Carol Burnett when I grew up! Love, LOVE those shows!

Funny enough, I was actually going to say precisely what that handsome cowboy said until I saw Tammy's comment.
