  1. Badfinger. Great post. Thanks for a laugh,
    Rodney Dangerfield the funniest.
    I was riding a bike on the beach of Santa Monica years ago and passed him by walking in his pajamas and robe. I wanted to stop, but the look him gave me was not inviting.
    Regards and goodwill blogging.

  2. those are great! All of them are good but I really liked the Carlin, Newhart and Dangerfield bits. If I’m not mistaken Bob Newhart had the best-selling album one year with a standup routine…surprising but it’s easy to see why he was so beloved.

    1. I’ll get a few of them… the one I’m anxious to get is Bill HIcks…my favorite…Leary owes him his career lol.


      1. No I didn’t to tell you the truth…I missed him and Woody Allen, Steve Martin, and most of all Andy Kaufman.


      2. Yea I will…now you got me thinking…Woody Allen I don’t mind…but Cosby will draw some ire lol


      3. So will Woody! They’ve got a doc about to be released (or maybe already has been) on Cosby that looks good. He let a lot of people down, especially where he symbolized a black family living an upper crust lifestyle.

      4. You are absolutely right. I may list them at the bottom with a note.
        Pryor really cut into Cosby and so did Murphy…I guess they may have known about his exploits.
        I liked Cosby but the best thing to me was Fat Albert…I was a teenager through the Cosby years…and like most teenagers I wanted something more edgy.

        But yea as human beings…they are pretty damn bad.

      5. Yea I know… but I don’t like erasing history. Yea I’m more of an Allen fan…wait…more of a fan of HIS films…and standup….but as a human being no.

  3. Oh my weekly lung clearing. Much appreciated, Max. This made me laugh out loud:
    “I feel sorry for people who don’t drink or do drugs. Because someday they’re going to be in a hospital bed, dying, and they won’t know why” All of these comedians are a cut above average.
