Fifty greatest comedy sketches of all time


Nerve and IFC have produced an ambitious list chronicling the "50 greatest comedy sketches of all time." The reason I'm posting this to Boing Boing at the end of the work day, Los Angeles time, is because I've spent the last 10 hours watching these clips and accomplishing little else of worldly value. Now it's your turn. I don't care to argue over whether the precise numeric order is correct or not -- comedy's such a subjective thing, no? -- but lo, there is a buttload of greatness all up in this list. SNL, Abbott and Costello, Monty Python, Kids in the Hall, Upright Citizens Brigade, and above, the "Nairobi Trio" from the Ernie Kovacs show. Link to the list. (thanks, Rufus Griscom!)
