If you ask me, there are very few comedians today who know and understand the real art of comedy. Please understand that I am not a prude by any stretch of the imagination. But much of today's comedy is merely a collection of four-letter words, without which, the material depends heavily on and would not be the least but funny without them.
In my day, the four-letter word was used on occasion to stress a point. But it was not the crux of the joke, nor did it have to be used to make the material funnier than it already was. The material had comedic value purely on its own.
Today, we look at such a comedy troupe from my era that was not dependent on profanity. Who can forget the zany satirical sketches from Monte Python's Flying Circus?
