Dad Story (Sort of): Ali G and Laughter

May 6, 2006 at 10:55 am 1 comment

Ran across this in my journal today.  It is from my July 18, 2005 entry.  Although it really isn't a Dad story, I'm fond of the memory:

Then I exposed Dad to the Ali G Show!  I had the 1st Season Disc 1 DVD with me.  I wasn't sure if Dad would find the show as amusing as us.  Sean and I actually discussed it on the way up and we concluded it wouldn't be Dad's cup of tea.

I took a stab at it anyway last night.  I put it in, queued up Borat's Guide to Dating and held my breath.  Within a minute or so, I heard a chuckle which quickly escalated into full blown Lowell-laughter — the best laughter I've encounted on this good Earth.

Although I've seen those sketches numerous times– even twice the night before — and none of the jokes were new to me I found myself cracking up as well.

Comedies are meant to be watched with Dad — period.  There is nothing equivalent.

    Sweet– this evening my father called me up and requested that I purchase for him TWO copies of the Season 1 and Season 2 sets of Da Ali G Show. Dad wants one for himself— and one to share with friends!
