With the recent passing of Bob Elliot, I've been listening to a boatload of Bob & Ray routines. This is from the very early days of David Letterman (1981). Why is this in the show forum?* Because this is the kind of thing Adam Carolla could and should be doing. Sadly, he has gone for quantity of work over quality of work.

Anything?
If you never try anything new, you'll miss out on many of life's great disappointments.

It's clear now. ZW is a double secret crypto-mod. And now he wants to be Emperor Norton. OK by me ... when he starts to draw his own currency with a portrait of him shaking hands with Sheriff John and Shrimpenstein, just accept it, guys. It might be worth something someday.

There probably aren't many others here who know that name. I think Emperor Norton was faking. It was a 19th century vaudeville idea of "madness."

But back to Bob & Ray.

Yes, back to Bob and Ray. I was looking for a bit they did ... one of their themes was ridiculous contests, and I remember watching them do a bit where a radio announcer called a "lucky winner" to congratulate him that he won the grand prize, which was ultimately was the phone call itself telling him that he won the grand prize. I couldn't find it, but if anyone else can, I'd love to see that again.

But I found this. B&R on Carson doing their "Most Beautiful Face Winner" sketch. Priceless. When they talk to Johnny, Bob mentions his son Chris. Must be somewhere between late 80s to early 90s.

Good point. Not only that but... eh...sorry, I can't think of anything.
