Return of the Kings
THE BOWERY BOYS COLLECTION, VOLUME TWO (1946-55): Slip, Sach and the rest of the crew are back for another heaping selection of hilarity that delivers up a full decade of Bowery brou-ha-has.

THE RICKY GERVAIS SHOW, THE COMPLETE THIRD SEASON (2012) The Office creators Ricky Gervais and Steven Merchant's popular podcast gets an animated remix to emerge as one of the sprightliest and strange comedies to ever grace the cableways. With the spotlight squarely cast on former Ricky Gervais Show radio producer, the ineffable and improbable Karl Pilkington, this talk/toon mash-up takes us to vistas hitherto only imagined by a 'round-headed buffoon'. Highlights from the third season include Karl pitching a film about an actor trapped in the body of Tom Cruise (played by Tom Cruise), a day in the life of Karl Pilkington, and Karl ruminating on his personal highlight of the year, observing invertebrates eating his biscuit (cf: cookie) on a window sill.
Eddie Cantor: Ol' Banjo Eyes
Eddie Cantor, "the apostle of pep," was an
original king of all media, vaulting from vaudeville to Broadway,
WHOOPEE (1930) This two-strip Technicolor musical comedy, adapted from Cantor's smash Broadway show, delivered hit songs like "Makin' Whoopee" and “My Baby Just Cares for Me” along with the dance number debut of a young choreographer by the name of Busby Berkeley - whose signature powers are on full display. Cantor plays a neuroses-laden hypochondriac (decades before Woodrow Allen) who becomes an accidental matchmaker when he offers a ride to a runaway bride way out West. Cantor becomes an unwilling Mercutio between the brides warring suitors - Sheriff Bob Wells and local tribesman Wanenis.
KID MILLIONS (1934) Cantor depicts a simple
Brooklyn boy who finds himself on a collision course with charlatans,
connivers, sheiks, and she-devils on the way to inherit a fortune in
Blowing Smoke Down Under
