I hit the web looking for video on one of the greatest comic’s of all time. To my amazement there was none to be found. So I dug though my archives and here he is….Murray Langston. THE UNKNOWN COMIC!
Im sure back then it was funny, one liners just dont do it any more. its all about the anecdote.
Steve Martin likes the Unknown Comic!!!
@EnjoyTheRideOfLife There is, or at least was a new version, but it sadly lacked the life of the orginal show, & I have no idea if Chuck has anything to do with the new show.
@sphinxrising58 there’s a new one? is chuck still hosting?
i remember the time he handed out penny candy bags as photographs . and the time he came out with a bottle of liquor in his hand, poured it over his head. “the drinks are on me.”
Too funny today to see him doing his act with a cigarette in his hand
@Enctypt ya srsly
@stingray2001 I laughed at him more than laughed with him but The Gong Show wouldn’t be the same without him!
@Masoneter Well then you’re either 12 years old or you’ve been living under a rock. Those names that I mentioned are indeed comedy legends and just because your dumb ass doesn’t know who they are doesn’t change that fact. Quite frankly, you should be embarrassed that you’ve never heard of guys like Don Rickles, Alan King, Richard Pryor, etc.
@lighthouse44 I’ve only heard of George Carlin in that entire list. I’ve heard of the Unknown Comic though. Hm… Not very legendary if NO ONE knows who they are…
Unknown Comic ruled!
FUNNY! Yes.. i laughed! I watched a show where they took off his bag to reveal who he really was.
@stingray2001 yes i did… and i wasnt thought of yet
i adore steve martin
wow how much comedy has changed in about thirty years.
I remember “The Unknown Comic” vividly. discovered who he was (believe it or not) before the rest of the world came to know his real identity ( ! ), as he was on another show during the time he did the “Unknown Comic” act, and i recognized his voice and his gestures. It was a few months after that, that he made himself known to the public. His “shtick” was a great one, I thought. Those were the days !! Thanks for posting this !
the man, the legend.
This show was THE BEST OF ALL TIME!!!!!!!!!!Reality before ” reality ” tv. The ORIGINAL AMERICAN IDOL SHOW but a billion times better, Gene Gene the Dancing Machine, Milton DeLugg and the band with a thud, this is solid freaking platinum stuff I wish to hell they’d sell ALL the seasons on DVD
@RO80T Err…it’s Murray Langston.
ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh lol lol lol YOUR STANDING TO CLOSE TO THE CAMERA hOW FAR DO YOU WANT ME TO STAND BACK
YOU GOT A CAR
THAT WAS FUNNY
@myradioon They’re still f*** up on TV. They’re just better at covering it up nowadays.
to myradioon-it’s all just part of the act….he’s not coked out of his mind; don’t be so jaded and serious….
its ROBIN WILLIAMS!!!
