How is that funny?

Earth to Marc...

Often comedy plays off irony.

Usually a when someone breaks bad news to a parent about his/her sexuality it's to tell them they are Gay.
So when you reverse the situation and the bad news is that she is longer a lesbian, it's funny that the parents take the news hard because they are so liberal and will be embarrassed in front of their friends..

See ?..Comedy..Irony and reversering what is normal is usually funny.

Maybe I can post the clip and you and Norm can find someone  to walk you through it.

I'd have to see it to say whether it's funny. Not like I can just read the description and say whether the episode is funny.

Paul Riser is the one of the many Jews making a living off the corpse of the brilliance of Woody Allen. The thing unique to Paul Riser is that he is not only terrible at it, he is the worst.

Did anyone ever watch Get a Life with Chris Eliot? I'm not sure if was really a good show but I really enjoyed it as a kid. Especially the episode where he build a submarine in his bath tub.
Loved it!

I wouldn't call it a sitcom, but The Wonder Years can be very funny. (Last night I watched "A Very Cutlip Christmas".)

Family Ties via Netflix.  I bet your ^ show rocks.  Smiley

Tried Family Ties a year or so ago. For my taste it was just too ... well, something.

Don't know if I've finally lost my mind or what, but today I went back to Family Ties. Only I decided to skip around instead of picking up where I had given up on it before.

None, as I'd sooner have my back waxed than watch a sitcom. But then I 'm a curmudgeon.

Some episodes are funny. The show seems to be heavily focusses on finding a mate. I'm starting to get bored with that.
