"I grew up on these guys"
6 April 2016 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Back in the 90s when Jerry Seinfeld had a most popular show on television it was as it proudly proclaimed about nothing. That is nothing except making people laugh. And he confessed to one and all that a lot of his comic inspiration came from two guys he grew up with.

More than one of us Jerry did grow up with these guys. I well remember seeing that old television series that Abbott&Costello had for two years in the 50s. They used some of their best movie routines in those shows which are now classic. I remember as a kid seeing all their movies run over and over on WPIX Channel 11 in New York for years until I was past college age.

What was nice seeing Bud&Lou in some of those old Colgate Comedy Hour routines. That was live television and it was on that the team made its small screen debut. A live audience is what is needed for laughter, nothing else like it opines Mr. Seinfeld correctly. From what I saw the boys were zanier there than on film. Just like Bing Crosby and Bob Hope who it was said were far funnier offscreen with each trying to top the other in ad-libs.

Thank you Jerry Seinfeld for this film. More than you grew up with these guys.
