Great job on this one! I thought that this joke was so old it was impossible to make funny anymore, but it seems I was wrong. :P

That was hilarious!!! :lol: It made more way more confused then when i first saw the original sketch, which makes it even better when I show this to all my retard friends.

I loved the LRR twist with involving the crazy named players into the conversation. It makes things worse for poor Graham and Paul, but oh so much funnier!

I disagree that saying "shut up" killed the mood. I mean what's there to say when you have an off screen person scream "Yah?" when you're trying to explain something.

I agree, it's an excellent take on one of the greatest sketches of all time. Another favorite of mine is Victor Borge's phonetic punctuation.

I really thought it was going to be just a repeat of the original for a while, but it turned out to be way more awesomer xD

And I don't care that awesomer isn't word. It should be.

I found that so hilarious, and actually did break out laughing more than a few times.

Truly loved the breaking from the original skit and talking to the players, especially this one:

Matt: "Why are we doing this again?"
Graham: "Because"
James: "Yeah"
Graham: "Tell them why we're doing this again"

That one really got me :). Also liked how the videos opening music mixed with the theme music. At first almost thought Revver was screwing something up, but ended up being great!

Also found the yelling at Bill to be very appropriate for the sketch, and glad you did it.

That was almost as good as the original. I think it might lose something when both parties have an idea what(2nd base) the players' names are.

I wrote a parody, which my dad and I performed to promote nametags for our church members.

One of my friends missed the sermon because he kept giggling at the skit.

I think that's Bill in the snapshot for this video - the one tossing the ball.

Excellent work, guys!

It's spooky because I was thinking to myself just this very day how the "Who's on first" sketch is one of the most finely crafted jokes ever.

An oldie and still a goodie!

I liked the video, but a classic is a classic for a reason.
So to use the baseball analagy, a swing and a good line drive; not a home run and not an strike out. Ending bit was the best.

Well...it was good, but I still think the last few weeks have been lackluster compared to others.

Don't get me wrong, you did a great job with it. I just think the Abbot and Costello one is such a solid piece of comedy it's hard to really do anything with it well. Also, the fast talking is one of the things that really makes the original shine, and there wasn't any in yours, which was disappointing. The other part about Who's On First which was great was the "Naturally" bit, which I think would have been a great addition to your sketch.





PS: The end was great ;)

As a ball player, I approve. I love the original and I am glad it wasn't just a straight repeat.

Where was that ball park? I'm just curious.

Also, for the record.... fastball>baseball :D

And in our next episode Kathleen will enter the local club and do the Elaine while Morgan complains about not wanting to be a pirate and Alex plays an oddball who gets busted for being racist in a comedy club, yadda yadda...

Bringin the funny is always good. This didn't disappoint. Great job y'all.

By the way, does victoria or vancouver or British columbia have a minor league baseball team like the State College Spikes or the Scranton Wilkes-Barre Yankees?

James and Matt's exchange, with James finish of "I don't know." made me laugh so hard.

Also, I kept thinking James was being played by Adam, for some reason.
