Bob And Ray
On the Flip Wilson Show a couple of weeks ago on TV Land, the guest stars turned out to be the comedy team of Bob and Ray. As a youngster, I must admit to not liking Bob and Ray. I didn't "get" them.
Mainly because their humor was over my head. Their's was the dryest, most deadpan humor ever performed. Sometimes incredibly subtle, they usually peformed a 3 to 5 minute farcical skit, playing it with incredible sincerity. As I grew older I came to the realization of just how funny they were.
Bob Elliott and Ray Goulding were comedy geniuses (geniui?). Of course Bob is the father of former Scottius Maximus Celebrity of the Month Chris Elliott.
The Official Bob and Ray Website has many samplings of their humor. My personal favorite, The Kimodo Dragon, is here (Windows Media Player).
