That Robin Harris clip is my favorite distillation of why he was a comic genius.  The pacing, the tone...perfection.

The RZA is building a great comedic resume.  He was hilarious in FUNNY PEOPLE and in this clip.

Flip Wilson was a real craftsman.  Check out this clip on the main page and see what I mean.

The Ugly Baby story by Flip Wilson is the very reason I got into show business.  His timing, facial expressions and wit is what I emulated.  Cos, Flip, Pryor and to some extent Carlin and Billy Crystal always cracked me up.  I still own most of these comedians VINYL albums including "Cowboys and Colored People" by Flip Wilson that includes "Ugly Baby".

I just caught that clip on the front page from The Tonight Show hosted by Jay Leno and Louis CK is his guest.  It's pretty funny! ;D

I'm digging Louis CK. His Being White routine is genius.
