Memory Lane: Bob and Ray

Hey! Remember these guys–Bob and Ray? They always cracked me up, and a lot of other people, too. They started their comedy gigs on radio and kept it up for several decades, easily transitioning to TV.

This is their classic bit on “The Slow Talkers of America.” The volume’s a little iffy, so you might want to turn it up. Bob and Ray would have just segued into “The Excessively Soft Talkers of America” and cracked you up with that, too.

    These guys have always cracked me up. I remember hearing them when I was a small child and loving them then. They always managed to sound up to date, usually by sounding out of date. You knew that they couldn’t actually be that square and didn’t take themselves seriously.

    They managed to entertain without resorting to off-color humor. Anyone could listen to them and not worry about what the kids might be exposed to.

    Honestly I don’t remember these guys but they’re hilarious. It occurred to me as I watched the one guy getting frustrated wanting to pull the words out of the other guys mouth, that it must be rather difficult speaking that slowly.
