Always loved Jonathan Winters.

It's apparent he's really fished from his familiarity with tackle, and his fish impersonations are pretty good too. What's interesting is that he wrote this for a national television audience in 1963 -a time period when proportionally more people fished compared to today. I wonder if such a skit would be lost on a "national audience" today? Would such a monologue fly on Letterman, Lenno or Fallon? Doubtful.

Good one.

 

Winters was a comic genius.

 

In our time we had Robin Williams who paralleled Winters' comedy style.
