Thank you. I wasn't aware that Cowards is the name of the comedy group/show and not the skit.

British Music Hall Comedy Songs by ruperttaylor in BritishComedy

Good article. Too short.

So much good comedy is lost in time.

While that article is about the British there's a lot forgotten in North America too.

Lots of folk music was anti-establishment and funny too with clever double entendres and such.

During Prohibition the blind pigs had all sorts of underground entertainment, and not so subtle.

I like the first Spike Jones (not today's director) and his wacky music. When the rock and roll thing came around and he heard the song "Splish Splash" he quit saying that he was out of a job.

Would I Lie to You? - The tales of Bob Mortimer by magnora7 in BritishComedy

[–]magnora7[S] 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

"Would I Lie to You?" is a show where the panelists read a story about their own life off a card. The story may be real or it may not, in which case the actor is seeing the story for the first time. The goal is to get the other team to guess incorrectly about whether the story is true or not.

It's a really fun show to watch. These guys are peak wit. This Bob Mortimer guy has the most hilarious stories that somehow end up being true more often than not
