Today I was listening to MMA Sunday School, a radio show on Sherdog that always makes me think what it would be like if they gave Chad Watson and I a radio show, got us a little tipsy and had us talk about things we aren't interested in. It is a strangely enjoyable show about nothing. In any case, they brought up someone who I hadn't thought of in years and forgotten how much I used to love: Super Dave Osborne.
Here are two of his bits:
In the first one he meets Mr. T.
I won't tell you the money line from this one, but I am sure you will figure it out shortly.
Here he covers 9 to 5. You can't lose with that.
I think I like Super Dave for the same reason I like Homie the Clown. Where Homie was a clown that refused to act the fool, Super Dave was the boring stuntman who was unfailingly disappointed. A good bit really. I also enjoy that the main gag in the sketches weren't really the funny part. The funniest part was usually completely deadpan and not pointed out with flashing arrows. His show also did a good job of pointing out the infantile, self congratulatory nature of sports programming.
