Sunday Funnies: The most famous Abbott & Costello routine of them all! (1953)

Abbott & Costello's famous "Who's On First?" skit was used in a couple of films, and I would imagine also on radio, so it made sense that they'd try it on their self-titled sitcom, which we've previously reviewed here.

In the 1953 episode, "The Actors' Home", it starts with an audience request...........

60 years later, it's still a laugh riot! Rating: A+.

It is truly one of the greatest routines of all time. In fact, if you think of it, the joke practically takes care of itself!

My father even adapted part of the routine whenever he'd have an argument with us girls (Mom, sister and myself) that ended up going in circles. After the umpteenth circle, he'd respond, "Third Base!" !

I've got to remember to pull up the Star Wars variant, where they dubbed this routine over a conversation between Yoda & Jar Jar Binks. That is a hoot!
