I am not old enough to have seen Red Skelton, The Three Stooges, and The Marx Brothers in their prime, but some of you might have been. I have only seen a couple of episodes of the Red Skelton show and only have seen one movie of the Marx Brothers called “Animal Crackers”. I use to watch the Three Stooges a lot with my moms old boyfriend and I found them pretty funny, but haven’t watched any of there work for awhile now. Another old comedy that I really enjoyed that I saw a couple of years ago was Laurel and Hardy. I really enjoyed Hardy being the stupid leader of the two that always talked them and got them into these situations and Laurel always beside him telling him what he thinks and aging on Hardy, haha. Everyone has to love the black and white picture of old comedies, I actually like it a lot because it makes you feel like you are in a different time when America had little to worry about and the media wasn’t all over the place telling everyone what is going on in the world, just puts you in a mind-set for a little bit where their is no care in the world, which is nice. All these old classic comedies bring different humor from what I can tell of the little I have seen so far. Red Skelton is the original all around funny guy to how he delivered all of his type of humor. One day my grandpa introduced “The Red Skelton” to me and it definitely changed my mind about how comedy has different ways it can come across when I saw the famous character of “Freddie the Freeloader”. The way Skelton did everything was very fun to watch. He was very popular for his comedy skits and his stand-up as well. He was very special the way he could bring laughs through his show and for people having a rough time out there, Skelton went into comedy to help bring smiles to their faces and was a really kind person. His story is pretty amazing being out by himself at the age of 11, I believe. You can always see the kid in him, no matter what kind of comedy he was doing. The Three Stooges was one of the first group of guys to really physically injure the other guy for laughs. This ended up being a hit, I mean I loved to watch it and I thought this was hilarious when they poked each other in the eye, bopped each other on top of the head, and stuck each other in the gut. It was quit a scene to watch Larry, Curly, and Moe abuse each other in every scene they ever made together. Although I have only seen one movie with the Marx Brothers, I enjoyed most of the movie. To tell you the truth when my grandpa sat down and plopped Animal Crackers in I thought this was just going to be another stupid old comedy, haha. I was right, but I liked it. The Marx Brothers brought the original stupid comedy movie to the table. I really enjoy stupid comedy shows nowadays and the Marx Brothers were the start of all that comedy. I have never heard a guy talk so fast in my life until I saw Animal Crackers. All four of them were in that movie, although the youngest brother didn’t have that big of a part, so he wasn’t as funny as the brother who talks like a cheetah runs, the brother that steals everything in his site, and the brother who helps him out and doesn’t even talk just blows his horn the whole time, haha. Those three brothers together were hilarious and the two brothers that tried to steal and con people throughout the whole movie was even more fun to watch. Also I would have never expected them to be so musically talented with the piano, it amazed me, it truly did. All together these are some of the best comedy people around back in the day. I will try and watch more of all of these brilliant comedic minds and I recommend people to check out all of these old comedies, which I call oldies.
