Very funny and since I'm of a certain age it was noticable that there were no four-letter words.

Thanks for the post

Best Brooks I've ever seen was him roasting Don Rickles.

This video has long been a favorite of mine, along with Flip Wilson's "ugly baby" routine , Nichols and May's "65 dollar funeral" routine, and of course Tim Conway's dentist routine.

But if you are impressed with aviators, watch this segment from Carson, with Bob Hope, Dean Martin and George Gobel. A number of well known actors spent the war teaching military pilots to fly, including Robert Cummings. But most of you probably don't know about the Curtis AT-9 "Jeep" twin engined trainer. This airplane was so nasty and difficult to fly, that at the end of the war, when all those airplanes were being surplused, it was required that all the AT-9s be scrapped or rendered unflyable, so they would not fall into civilian hands. The B-26 was not exactly a beginners airplane either, and I would certainly be impressed with anyone who could sit there and wait until the student made a mistake and then manage to salvage the situation in either of these airplanes.
