Larry Griswold: November 13, 1951


For whatever reason, I have never been a fan of slapstick or physical comedy. Sometimes I have found it annoying and sometimes iut has seemed to glorify cruelty. 

That’s why I’m not sure why I find this clip just sent to me by an Alabama friend to be impossibly hilarious.

I have never found any bit of physical comedy funnier.  I would have made a point of seeing it the first time it was broadcast, but — being 6 weeks old and all — you can understand.

His name was Larry Griswold.
