Happy New Year from TWWLM!

We hope you enjoy this special treat from Larry, Dr. Chris and Colonel Jeff. We’re bringing you a New Year’s episode of The Fred Allen Show which originally aired on 12/14/47. Fred Allen was known for his quick ad libs and cornball recurring characters. Although the show may sound tame by today’s standards, his wordplay and double entendre pushed the edges of acceptable content in its day and he was often censored by the network. (Listen for the punchline of the “rainmaker” joke in this episode, for example.) Allen and Jack Benny had a legendary, but completely made up show biz feud that went on for decades. You can hear a taste of it in this episode. Enjoy and we’ll see you next week!

    Sure would be nice if Larry would use part of the next JokeOTW segment to analyze and explain Mrs. Nussbaum’s ‘contest with a clue’ joke, and Fred Allen’s followup ‘locomotive’ remark. Thanks.

    Almost spit my coffee on the faux pas comment. Genius.
