Red Skelton’s Guzzler’s Gin sketch, from 1943. He was a comedian, a extremely lengthy time ago. This still cracks me up. Shvoooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!
@SecretSuetSlinger Actually to me, seeing him make the transformation in between characters is priceless. What a quick mind and command of motion he had!
Jackass > Red Skelton
red skelton is my great great uncle realy i swear
God, I love Red.
Wow. Just… wow.
Algy saw a bear, the bear saw Algy, the bear was bulgy, the bulge was Algy.
My grandfather has Red’s 1980 Cadillac De Ville, Very nice car.
I think he should had a audience I’n the back ground .
I think it would have been even better if he’d walked off camera each time he turned his hat over and swapped characters… but that’s not how he did it on stage.
Of course this is from The Ziegfeld Follies! And you’re all right about Lucy’s Vitameatavegamin!
I know he says smooth and not “Shvooo” but it sounds like shvoooo at the end.
“it doesn’t need a chaser! nothing could catch it!”
5 Stars everyone love Red, we miss hi
Yellow cab was a movie he did.
Check out my taxi video

not to be rude… but I believe the uploaders Title should be Smmoooooth and not shvooooooooo
lol i actually enjoyed that had to have few shots of gin but hey i laughed
Funny he is born on my bday!!
great fun, I remade this advert in 1997, as a home movie, just added it to my youtube channel see what you think!
@MadsNoble Thank you. I am laughing uproariously at someone who was under the impression that this woefully unfunny sketch was from a TV show calling me a troglodyte. Look at it… Does it even remotely resemble a 40s TV Show, you fucking moron? If Ziegfeld really was doing a retrospective show from his celestial home then this piece of shit would be consigned to the heavenly toilet. I do credit Skelton with one thing, though; he makes Keenan Wynn seem funny… and that’s some achievement.
@JohnnyContagious You are an idiot. You don’t know good talent. You are such an idiot. This is a classic. It has survived the test of time. You are just a troglodyte.
@MadsNoble I don’t know. But this is from a movie from the theater. So that’s why it’s in such good color.
This sketch was kidn of my introduction to comedy I was a little kid and a saw a Red Skelton impersonator and before the intermission did Guzzler’s Gin and ltitle did I know then that it would change my life. At 19 years old I am one of only a handful of people in the world who want to dedicate thier life to this vintage style of humor
the third time he came out, I felt sorry him, man I’ve never seen anyone act double drunk before
This is indeed from The Ziegfeld Follies, not from TCM Celebrates Judy Garland as stated by YouTube above.
Just watching him, I bet it is fun to play drunk.
Red’s comedic genius was one of a kind! He is sorely missed!!
@MadsNoble The first few shows started broadcasting color in late 1964. In 1965, they started making all the new shows in color. If you’ve seen re-runs of “Bewitched”, you will notice just the first year (1964) was in black & white.
