Top 50 Comedy Sketches

This is a pretty cool list that someone put together of the 50 Greatest Comedy Sketches of All Time.  The best part is that each one has a link to watch the video online.  I had seen some of them (mostly the SNL and Monty Python) but there were definitely some new ones in there.  My one crituque would be that it leaves out a lot of the newer SNL stuff, from the last 15-20 years.  I suppose I’m probably biased though since that is pretty much all I know and I’m sure a lot of the things that make them funny are who you watched it with and the joking that followed in the days and weeks afterward.

I think my favorites from this list have got to be Argument Clinic (a few friends of mine did that for a talent show in college), the classic Who’s On First Argument to Beethoven’s Fifth (this was new to me but pretty creative), Gerald Ford dead at 83, More Cowbell (I believe this was named best SNL sketch of all time a while back) and Buckwheat sings (I couldn’t figure out how to link to it but it is embeded in the top 50).
