Adam Sandler `80’s Stand Up [CLASSIC COMEDY OF THE DAY]

Adam Sandler `80’s Stand Up [CLASSIC COMEDY OF THE DAY]

Back in the `80's, a young Adam Sandler had problems with his mom rubbing Vicks VaporRub on his chest when he was sick. There was always that awkward moment of eye contact. He was saying he wanted to have sex with his mother; he's just saying he could have - if he tried. This classic comedy clip captures Sandler, back in 1988, at a comedy club in Los Angeles. Earlier, you could clearly see the Sandler charm that would catapult him to stardom.

Steve Martin and Comedy Act For Dogs [CLASSIC COMEDY OF THE DAY]

Steve Martin and Comedy Act For Dogs [CLASSIC COMEDY OF THE DAY]

Steve Martin was the first stand up comedian to play stadiums. Such a silly sense of perverse genius is embedded into Martin's early stand up. In this rare clip (from an appearance on the Tonight Show) Steve concocts a comedy act for dogs. The only problem; if you are human being, you just won't get the jokes. But if you are a canine - you'll be rolling on the floor in hysterics and barking with laughter.
