|PROMPT: Of the many forms of comedy, and one of my favorites, is comedy teams. Share your thoughts on comedy teams. Would you be more likely to be part of a comedy team or are you the 'lone stand-up type'?
I adore comedy teams, from Laurel and Hardy to The Three Stooges and the ever popular Abbott and Costello. Even Bing Crosby and Bob Hope. To me, every funny man is funnier with a 'straight man' . http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Double_act
What is even better is sometimes the straight man is the comic. With their snarky sarcasm they bring out the comedy of the funny man. Given this, I would definitely be the straight man in a comedy duo...
Here are some of my favorite comedy routines...
#1) Abbott and Costello - Who's on First
#2) Martin and Lewis - The Lola Skit
#3) Laurel and Hardy - Great Guns
