I gave my daughter an iPod Touch for her birthday and recently discovered that her favourite app is "Today in History" It's pretty interesting and the information is suprisingly broad - but rarely entertainment based, So I did a couple of searches of my own to see if there was a "today in comedy history" site that I could steal..ahem...reference. While I couldn't find anything specific to today's date I thought I'd share a few highlights - (as I'm sure you'd rather stay here on this wonderful web site than waste your time somewhere else. :)
So gentle reader - here is some trivia you can wow your friends and family with at dinner tonight:
1914.12.21 - Tillies Punctured Romance - 1st six-reel feature comedy (?!) and there were more!
1967.06.04 - Monkees receive Emmy for Outstanding Comedy Series
1990.05.29 - Dave Thomas Comey Show( Canadian!) first airs on CBS
1990.06.25 - Dave Thomas Comedy Show last airs on CBS (oh dear)
Um - think I'll stop there....out of respect for Dave of course.
But hey? Monkees! Right on eh?
