first & last dates

One of the things I’ve been doing to keep my spirits up through the last three weeks is listening to a lot of standup comedy. I enjoy modern comedians, yet to tell you the truth, I still cannot get 100% comfortable with the crude language and jokes that are standard fare today.

When I was a kid in the sixties, I had most of Shelley Berman’s routines memorized, and I still delight in them to this day. Last night I heard this bit, and thought you might enjoy it too… if only to reminisce about the values of a bygone time before comedy went so “blue.”
