The Unknown Comic

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.

    @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.

  4. EnjoyTheRideOfLife says:

    @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.”

    @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…

    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 !

    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
