Tuesday Tickler: Not Here

Vincent Avatar

I’ve decided it’s too easy to get caught up in the muck and mire of daily bread and butter.

I’ve decided there’s too many bogey men around and I don’t have the luxury of being scared.

I’ve also decided that it is not OK for my children to see me mad at life. They have to know it is hard and confusing – potentially overwhelming – but that is part of the thrill of living.

Every Tuesday, I am going to post videos of some of my favorite comedians and comedy skits. I’m calling these posts, Tuesday Tickler posts. It’s a sort of theoretic/philosophic mash up of “Tickle Me Elmo” and the Tuesday’s Child.

It’s important to remember to laugh.

In this clip, Abbott and Costello are making a rube out of a scary looking mobster. I am not sure of what movie it is from. Abbott and Costello are among my favorite comedians. I feel they were more accessible than the Marx Brothers without sacrificing the pun and wordplay.
