It’s fun to see how out of date the premise is, and yet how hilarious Elaine May and Mike Nichols were, both with impeccable timing.

    • Yes. I think so many after them were influenced by their comedy. Just amazing skill and talent. I think you could make a case that basically all post vaudeville American sketch comedy goes back to Nichols and May.

  1. Such great humor! I have always enjoyed the “phone call” style of humor, so many greats in this area.

    Incidentally I remember the days of switchboard operators, 4 digit phone numbers, and the Time Lady 😉

    • Yes, just off hand, I can recall Betty Walker, Shelly Berman, Bob Newhart…

      The thing that got the biggest laugh of recognition from me was the sending of the stamps. It always seemed such a ludicrous form of repayment.
