    Listen to Red ..........

    Not everyone here will recall Red Skelton - but he was a real favorite of mine and many other older folks too.

    Listen to this and hopefully enjoy.

    I remember. I used to watch him when I was a kid. Usually the last show before I went to bed.

    I never saw him live, or the TV shows, but my dad has quite a few of his videos that I've seen multiple times. He was one of the best comedians. I always found it funny when he would start laughing so hard at his own joke, he couldn't finish telling it.

    He was great, lots of his sketches became instant classics. Like Chris, I can remember watching him as a kid.

    (But I can also remember listening to the Lone Ranger on radio! )

    Thanks, Chris. One of my favorites along with Johnny Cash's "Ragged Old Flag" and John Wayne's "America, Why I Love Her." If any of those three fail make you proud to be an American (native or naturalized) it's time for you to shop for a new country!

    I showed that clip to my wife and she listened to it.

    Now she wants to take it to school and let everyone that she teaches hear it. She teaches 9th grade Civics. Event though its a bit dated,she thinks that it could be used to great effect.

    Loved his show. Watched it all the time. He was a unique comedian. Unlike many today, could make you laugh without profanity being in every sentence.

    I believe he specialized in painting clowns, didn't he? I, too, remember watching him with my parents, as a kid. He was truly funny, as already mentioned, without having to shock you into a laugh....

    I've seen some, he specialized in clowns if I remember correctly, mostly portrait type paintings.
