In 1955, He Made Television History. 59 Years Later, We Are Still Laughing!
Call me crazy but comedy from the 50s only gets better with age. Way before the word sitcom was even invented Honeymooners were doing pretty much the same physical comedy that made Seinfeld’s Kramer the most beloved character on TV and it is just as hilarious now as it was back then.
On a simple set and with a budget that probably can’t even cover the catering in today’s productions, these guys made millions of viewers laugh. This is the skit that singlehandedly coined a catchphrase that would linger on for decades to come and it makes me giggle every time I see it.
