Can I ask if you did not live through the era or around the era, how have you come to enjoy their stuff? Through family members? Classic movie channels? Or are you just that much of a movie or comedy buff to seek it out?

Even for me I did not live through the era, but the years I grew up, their movies were on constantly on the weekends.

I donít see any of their stuff today (or for that matter many, many years) except maybe the occasional Jerry Lewis flick.

My Mom grew up during the Golden Age of comedy with the likes of Martin and Lewis, Lucille Ball, etc....Through her she turned me onto these cats and many more. And because I'm such a fan of all styles of comedy, be it the Golden Age all the way to present day, I have made it a habit to seek out lesser known acts as well as acts that I've heard about over the years but have been lazy to hunt down. If I hear about it, I will do research on them.

There is just something to be said about comedy from that era that didn't have to rely on dick and fart jokes to get a laugh. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy that as well. But if you really break it down, it's much harder to do what Martin and Lewis did compared to todays comics of going for the easy laugh.
