"The 50 Greatest Comedy Sketches of All Time (Nerve & IFC)"


          

First, an excerpt of their criteria and notes:

"Any list is bound by the limitations set on it consciously and unconsciously by its creators: we kept our 50 selections to stuff that's appeared on television by choice, and to what's appeared in English out of necessity. One must also bear in mind the availability of material; who knows what comedic treasures are lost to us because they simply don't exist anymore?"

Flip Wilson and The Richard Pryor Show should be up here somewhere. Geraldine should be in the top 10. The sketches from The Richard Pryor show was genius.

These impressions are absolutely BRILLIANT. There are several great sketches from SCTV that should get consideration.

I am glad that the genius Scenes From an Idiot's Marriage made it.

it would probably be made up of Python, SCTV and Mr. Show exclusively.

1. Leave it to Beaver - SCTV

2. Larry Kleist - Rapist - SCTV
