Hi @sofaramnotdead – I'm with you on most of today's so called comedy shows…not very funny. I like the old Dean Martin comedy routines with Foster Brooks. They would always bring out a good laugh. Easy to find and watch, just do a Google search for Dean Martin comedy on YouTube. The Foster Brooks routine is right on top.

Hi @sofaramnotdead – does anyone like the Frasier reruns? I think they are truly amazing and I’ve heard they may start a new series. One has to appreciate a sarcastic sense of humour though, so it may not be everyone’s cup of tea! ‘Tis so important to laugh as that will get us through the tragedies that we may face in life and lift us to a better place!

“ What’s My Line” is also good for some old time humor. Lots of celebrities now past. YouTube has them with old commercials. Love it!!

@dreamer38 I loved Frasier, I had no idea it was in reruns. Way back, I also enjoyed the "soap" named Soap! That was in the late 70s I believe.
My daughter and I both have a tendency toward sarcasm which I have to be very careful about. I remember when she was in pre-school and we were in car-pool, she would say something sarcastic and the other little children had no idea what she meant. She has mellowed over time, but just a little bit. I've mellowed a lot.
