I didn’t get to watch the Golden Globes last night. Here’s the complete opening with Tina Fey and Amy Poehler.
A wonderful look at some special moments Bob spent with the troops during his many Christmas performances. Hope performed for the brave troops in WW II, Korean War, Viet Nam and the Persian Gulf War. The actors who he brought along were the very best of the best.
Carl Switzer, better known as Alfalfa was born on August 7, 1927 and was “discovered” when he was touring Hal Roach Studios at the age of 6. He was signed to do the Our Gang film shorts. He did that for 6 years. He appeared in other films and television shows but never had the success he did as a child actor. Switzer was killed in 1959 over a $50 debt.
Jonathan Winters passed away of natural causes at his Montecito, California home at 6:45 p.m. PDT on April 11, 2013, surrounded by family and friends. Winters was 87 years old.
Here are two videos that feature this funny man at his best.
Jerry Seinfeld had a series this summer called Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee. On this episode Jerry’s special guests are Carl Reiner and Mel Brooks. The two comedy legends have been friends for 62 years and eat dinner together every night.
I enjoyed this so much. I’ve been wondering how Mel Brooks was doing since I hadn’t heard much about him for quite a while. He is and was one of the funniest creative people in the business.
If you enjoyed this half as much as I did go here and watch the Spare Parts clips below the video.
