    Considered one of, if not the, funniest comedy routines ever performed, Abbott & Costello's famous "Who's on First?" turns 75 this year. In honor of MLB Opening Day 2013, here is a nice story ESPN did tonight after the Astros game, and below I present the original routine itself. Having performed it several times myself, including at my umpire school banquet, I can attest to the fact that it is NOT easy to do. I wanted to laugh so often while doing it.

    +1 Certainly the greatest comedy routine of all time.

    One doesn't even have to be a baseball fan to enjoy the routine. Abbott & Costello do such a perfect job that it's easy to see how anyone could laugh their proverbial butts off just watching that.

    I can't imagine how long it must have taken them to rehearse that to be able to get through it without breaking up :)
