    Clearly, that's the best ten of the last few years. They didn't bother about such classics as Buddy Hackett's Chinese Waiter routine. It's like not bothering with Andy Griffith's What It Was Was Football in a list of best sports comedy routines.

      Whoa, whoa whoa,
       
      Some of these are golden oldies- that Eddie Murphy clip came out nearly 30 years ago!

        Well, Eddie Murphy is still new. The Chinese Waiter routine goes back to the early '50s, and Andy Griffith's What It Was Was Football is from the same period.

            New?? That came out when I was in High School, that was eons ago, the majority of my coworkers weren't even born yet or were still in diapers.  The stuff from the 50's came out when the world was still in black and white-

              To me, a pie in the face by Soupy Sales is the epitome of funny food routines...

                The least funny John Pinette routine on food is funnier than anything Dane Cook has ever done. Gaffigan's funnier than Cook as well.

                    How about Jackie Gleason's and Art Carney's Chef of the Future?

                              I agree.  A true classic and very hilarious.

                                  Not to sidetrack this thread......and not food related......but one that always brings tears to my eyes, despite i canh almost quote it verbatim ( and yes, a lot of old Carol Burnett episodes also make me wet the My Depends...guess I"m getting old)..At least there is no gratuitous swearing

                                    It is funny that you mention the Buddy Hackett skit, Mr. Hoffman-I am making no crack on your age- my Dad shared that with me many years ago. Indeed funny. Personally, I found very few of the videos funny-was looking for the old humor that I grew up with!!
                                    Never found the show"Taxi" to be funny. Sorry, guys

                                      You most certainly are!
                                       
                                      Judging by old TV shows and photos- it appears the world changed from black and white to color  right around the time I was born- and that would explain things because I don't remember anything else.

                                        Someone just told me that they now have color television right in the television set -- no need for one of those spinning color wheels in front of the screen.

                                          You put the Spinning Color Wheel facing the Artificial Aluminum Christmas Tree with the revolving tree stand!
                                          You put the colored strips of plastic Film on the TV Screen to get Color TV.

                                            My grandmother had some sort of wheel that wouls spin in front of the screen to provide color. I don't know about artificial trees.

                                              Clearly, that's the best ten of the last few years. They didn't bother about such classics as Buddy Hackett's Chinese Waiter routine. It's like not bothering with Andy Griffith's What It Was Was Football in a list of best sports comedy routines.


                                              Love the Andy Griffith routine-Big Orange Drink!!
                                              All the Smothers Brothers routines.
