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.


FAITH: I find the lack of it disturbing.

Opinions are my own but should be those of all Americans, who would be much better off intellectually, psychologically, and emotionally if that were the case.

+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 :)
