A Badly Needed Laugh Blast From The Past

Some days we all badly need a good belly laugh more than other days. Somehow a conversation at the hangar turned to favorite comedy bits and someone remembered this routine, but didn’t remember the comedian or some of the key details.

It’s long been a favorite of mine, and since I needed the laugh and looked it up, allow me to share, from the April 1990 HBO Special, Dennis Wolfberg:

I remember first hearing this routine on the radio. One of the Los Angeles rock stations (KLOS?) used to have a feature called the “Five O’Clock Funnies” where they would play some comedy bit every day at that time, figuring (correctly) that people might need it at the end of their work day, on the commute home. I tried to listen most days and I remember people worrying that they were going to have to call the paramedics to keep me breathing I was laughing so hard.

RIP, Dennis. We’re still laughing.
