As we close out 2016 and welcome in 2017, I felt that you would enjoy the A-Z of Christmas, combined with a compilation of some of the most famous comedy scenes to bring joy, happiness, and most important of all – laughs.
Please let me know what some of your favourite A-Z moments have been.
Note: Cheesy alert and some content may be offensive.
A is for Angels and, in this case, all the laughs with Abbott and Costello for their skit on Who’s on First.
B is for Blixen and Blitzen but B is also for Mr. Bean and his troubles with Christmas Turkey.
C could be for Christmas, but that might be too obvious… instead watch the colonoscopy skit perfectly presented by Billy Connolly.
D is Dancer and Dashing, and Dana Carvey with his Foxy Lady Skit.
E is for Elves and also for Elaine’s dancing skills.
F is Fruitcake; and F is also for something equally seasonal – Festivus.
G might have been for Gifts, but instead here is the gift of George Constanza’s ‘It’s Not You It’s Me’.
H is for Holly, but have a laugh with Harry from Dumb and Dumber.
I could be for Icicles, but instead enjoy Impersonations – watch Kevin Spacey’s genius in action.
J at this time of year is Joy. J is also for courageous and daring Jimmy Fallon messing with Donald Trump’s hair.
K is for Kings; and K is also for Seinfeld’s Kramer.
L is for Love. Love’s antithesis is Larry David and for the many cringeworthy moments he’s brought to the screen.
M might stand for Merry, but really for a belly laugh it’s anything Monty Python.
N is Noel. N is also for Norman Gunston at the dismissal of the Whitlam Government.
O is for Ornaments; and O is also for Oscar presenter Billy Crystal at Muhammad Ali’s memorium.
P is for Pudding – unless P makes you think of Peter Griffin of Modern Family.
Q is for Quartet. Q also reminds me of Quentin Tarantino’s KKK scene in Django.
R is for Rudolph – and R is also for the genius of Robin Williams – so much to choose from but I had to choose one.
S is for Santa, but S is also for Seinfeld’s Yada Yada.
T is for Tree and T is also for the Three point turning with Austin Powers.
U is for Unicorn. U is also for the USA Election campaign that heavily dominated our media on 2016 – with SNL playing its part.
V is for Vacation and for Sophia Vergara’s Character “Gloria” of Modern Family.
W is for Wreath. W is also for Gene Wilder who brought us so many funny moments for us in our lives.
Y is for Yuletide with Mother and Son.
Z is for Zzz – and Zoolander’s blue steel.
Wishing only the best of times with your loved ones at this time of the year.
