    I watched Adam Sandler in 'Jack and Jill' at the weekend. I laughed several times, mainly at Al Pacino. He'll do pretty much anything these days, won't he?

      Not if Robert De Niro gets there first he won't.

        Very true, interesting to think how serious they once were about their craft (see also Dustin Hoffman). I think Al is more naturally suited to comedy being little and having a silly voice and all and, of course, he's always gone too far and liked it. even in his serious roles.

        'Jack and Jill' isn't too bad, actually, it made a change to watch an American comedy film that stuck to the point, a particular criticism of anything that has Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughan or Will Ferrell in - I'm not sure if it's because they like to improv but it tends to mean the films are usualy at least half an hour too long. I saw 'The Watch' recently and it was all over the place. I do like Richard Ayoade, though, but he's from Whipps Cross.

          I forgot about Bob Newhart. Perhaps I have slightly more than two.

            Don't tease us, Agnes. What are the at least two you have?

            I'm thinking a Lenny Bruce and a Woody Allen. Am I right? Or an Andrew 'Dice' Clay and a Bill Hicks?

              ferrel was partly responsible for the foot fist way. that's a great film.

                None of those sadly, though if I ever tire of British comedy then that's precisely where I would start.

                I think my sum total of US comedy stretches to this (plus a David Frye album which hasn't been photographed yet):

                Allan Sherman - The Very Best of Allan Sherman



                Allan Sherman - Songs for Swingin' Livers Only!



                Steve Martin - Comedy is not Pretty



                Rusty Warren - Knockers Up!



                Bob Newhart



                Bob Newhart - The Button-Down Mind on TV

                  And to keep it Andy Kaufman related, I did enjoy reading the book about him 'Andy Kaufman Revealed!' by Bob Zmuda with Matthew Scott Hansen. Andy certainly was a one-off, by turns innovative, daring, hilarious and yes, very very annoying. Jim Carrey said that Kaufman was the director and the audience, the people at his shows were the performers. I think I know what he meant.

                    Whipps Cross is just the hospital really. Still, he is listed on Wikipedia as living in Leytonstone until moving to Ipswich.
                    Leytonstone can still proudly boast such major names as Tony Robinson, Jonathan Ross, June Sarpong and Fanny Cradock (complete with misspelt blue plaque), plus a few minor ones like Hitchcock, Beckham and Derek Jacobi

                      Agnes - no Tom Lehrer? (and on 10" LPs, for the 10" record thread - although I guess their recommendability is questionable)

                        This is my favorite Allan Sherman cut - does it feature on that "very best of" I wonder...

                          Only a cassette tape! I do love Lehrer though.

                            It didn't, no!

                              I have been searching the web for an actual Kaufman record
                              How weird is that.
                              6 months after I posted Drag City has released an actual Andy Kaufman record but I missed it because I gave up looking for one.
