[VIDEO] Classic comedy

Old style routines that have been done so many times on stage they could be done asleep, awake, drunk or sober.

Watch Abbott and Costello and if you don't at least smile check your pulse.

Heavily inspired more modern (if you can call 80s modern!) take on it...

I don't suppose it's possible to go back further than Abbott & Costello to see if they got it from anywhere.

They are my favourite double act of all time, and while most people know who's on 1st, 7 x 13 = 28 is up there and WWAW

Spooky, I only saw those Abbott and Costello sketches the other day (the baseball one was slightly different).   Brilliant.

You cannot imagine how big they were in the day, when they did the monster movies it was A List stars from said movies, Legosi , Lon Chaney, Karloff etc.....they were just massive......

Universal do these compilation Blu-rays for Dracula, Frankenstein and The Mummy:

It's annoying that all three of them share a number of movies, including Abbot and Costello Meet Frankenstein. But I guess on the bright side the moment I start working through one of these sets I'll see this.

I've seen the "who's on first" sketch so many times I wasn't going to press play but I'm glad I did. I haven't laughed that much for a long time, even though I knew what was coming.
Thanks Snaps :)
