Garry Shandling just passed away

I always liked his humor - very smart guy ...

One of his ....

" After making love I said to my girl 'Was it good for you too?'

And she said 'I don't think this was good for anybody.'"


That was Gary Shandling ...

All the good one's are dying off, TV's about the worst it's been in decades.

I really liked the Gary Shandling show. It was one of the first TV shows where the actors occasionally broke the "fourth wall and addressed the audience directly. I think Gary was one of the most underrated comedians. RIP.

Wish they would bring back 'Amos and Andy'. Now that was real down to earth comedy. In other words real reality.

"Wish they would bring back 'Amos and Andy'. Now that was real down to earth comedy. In other words real reality."

Many of the "Amos and Andy" radio and TV shows are available on the Internet. Some can be watched on-line, other purchased. Do a Google search for "Amos and Andy" and you will quite pleased with the availability of these great, old shows. Love the one line when Amos and Andy were synchronizing their watches for some split-second timing scheme they were trying to pull off: "Let's simonize our watches."

Would Amos and Andy be politically correct today?

I took 20 minutes from my day to watch this:

@ http://comediansincarsgettingcoffee.com/garry-shandling-its-great-that-garry-sha ndling-is-still-alive

I really enjoyed it - in particular the exchange about Matthew McConaughey & the Lincoln car commercials he is featured in.

Marshall - Funny how certain things of absolutely no importance seem to "stick in your head" after many years, and, maybe it's because I grew up in Chicago, but this one back & forth "discussion" between the "Kingfish" and "you know who is one that I really got a kick out of:

The two of them got into some kind of trouble and one says to the other,.....

"We has got to get outa here quick"!

"Yeah, but where we goin'?"

"We is gonna' head West, and we is gonna' tell everybody who ask us, dat we is from Chicago. An' when somebody finally ask us,....Where dat?"

"Well,....dat's da' place!"

What resonated for me with his comedy was the truth in it.

Burger,

The link works for me - so ?

Here is another link from a couple of radio interviews he did:

@ http://www.npr.org/2016/03/25/471795179/how-heartbreak-helped-garry-shandling-fi nd-his-comedic-voice

" At the beginning, I think I wrote material that was very much influenced by Woody Allen, who is my favorite,
and I used to do very off-beat jokes that sounded like I was reading them, and it took years to develop a style.

Actually, what happened is I was involved in a relationship and the girl left me.

And I was very hurt, very hurt.

And I had to go up on stage, and I finally just turned to the audience and said, "'This girl left me."

I said, "Well, what happened is she moved in with another guy.

So I dumped her, because that's where I draw the line."

That was really the beginning of the Garry Shandling dating years in stand-up. "
