Who’s On First, What’s On Second, I Don’t Know’s on Third

My mom sent me this today. It’s still possibly one of the funniest comedy routines I’ve ever seen. I saw it for the first time as a little kid and I remember rolling on the floor laughing.

A brilliant demonstration of how complicated the English language can be, even in its simplicity. By about minute six, my guess is Abbott is feeling like most entrepreneurs do when they are tangled up in something.

It’s worth watching all eight minutes – it’ll put a smile on your face, regardless of how your day is going.

  • Oh man… its amazing how well this holds up. Thanks for digging it up Brad.

  • Brilliant sketch. Was introduced to Abbott and Costello much later in life (college I think). The “7 x 13” sketch is still my favourite. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MS2aEfbEi7s

  • Go Cubs. Maybe this year is our year?

  • Big Smile — a classic I’ve haven’t watched in years! I’ve had technical discussions (usually when UX is involved) that were scarily similar.
