I agree it's not all that funny, just better than Seinfeld (by one of Seinfeld's writers).

I already posted something really funny.

Here is is again.

And Sinatra and Davis were not even a professional comedians.

Good god, that's awful. Pie in the face slapstick?
Sinatra asks for Italian dressing for his salad, the waiter brings over an Italian man putting on his coat.

I gotta agree with ed, Abdul. That bit with Kramer and Mel Torme was pure genius. I couldn't help laughing out loud. Even Mel has trouble keeping it together.

Mel Torme is an excellent actor and acted the part well.

That does not mean it was funny.

He thought that the bit with Mel Torme was so accurate and real that we would mistake it for a clip from a documentary so he had to explain that it was acted.

Gee Abdul, does that mean that the other people were acting too? You mean it wasn't real? Wow!!

What makes me think that Abdul does stand up and is trying out new material on us?
Listen ladies and germs, there hasn't been anything funny since Soupy hit Frank with a pie. And that includes me!!!!

So are you somehow claiming that Seinfeld is funny?

Or only that Mel Torme did an accurate portrayal of something?

Don't want my original point to get lost.

Imitating the style of a Jewish guy who was indeed funny, not your boy Seinfeld.

You wouldn't happen to have a bissel MOT in you would you? :)
