Sometimes a wizard gets lonely at the top
Surely the absolute master of deadpan comedy, the "they're on instruments" scene in Airplane! just KILLS me. I wish I could find his rambling speech from the British Comedy Awards a few years back in which he claims that the recruiting posters for the Canadian army during WWII said "Pull My Finger".
Have you ever seen his series of spoof going tutorials? Some comedy gold there. It is indeed sad.
