    A different variation from his famous one sided phone conversations which made him a celebrity.

    @wantsomecoffee This was from the Smother’s Brothers Show, so it was probably sometime around 1968…1969 or that vicinity.

    This looks like it was done before his classic “Bob Newhart Show” in the early 70s. The best comedy never dates. Haven’t there been news about ATC’s in the news recently. . .?

    That looks suspiciously like the headphones that cameramen and studio floor directors wore in the 1960s.

    :D hows it going guys?

    This is V.I.B.E., we’re a 15 year old hip hop-singing duo and our inspirations are Eminem, Linkin Park (especially the Fort Minor side project), and Kanye West. Whether any of these sounds can be heard in our music is up to you guys, we’re just trying to get better, so if you got a moment, check out our channel and let us know what we need to improve on to make better music for you.

    Thanks :)

    Yeah, a day of doing that nonstop with barely any breaks would burn me out pretty quick. No wonder they’re falling asleep at the switch.

    Nice booty, very nice. I would have followed her around the mall.

  18. t3golf says:

    Thanks for uploading this. Can anyone upload the sketch about the unexploded bomb? Unfortunately my version is on vinyl.

  20. Jumbo5611 says:

    Yeah, me too.. for 30 years… and it’s miserable folks like you who take themselves too seriously that make our job more of a job and less of a vocation.
    Chill out mate and try laughing at yourself now and again!.
