Larry David goes to see some battered women (women who have suffered from domestic abuse)…You might recall the fabulous actress Ma’am’ here as Eddie’s wife Catherine in the 1983 Vacation movie – Miriam Flynn. She made this scene work as much as Larry.
This post may not be to everyone’s liking, but such is comedy. I received a response to a comment on You tube which I had written eon’s ago about this video and I noticed it received 454 likes! That’s nearly boy-band territory and I was gobsmacked. My very likeable comment was as follows:
‘I think this is my favourite scene from the show. The support cast are just brilliant and the awkwardness and lack of sincerity conveyed by everyone in their suppressed anger states is utterly engrossing.’
Even before many decided my comment was so likeable I felt this scene… as far as comedy served was the best I’d ever seen. So in celebration of my intuition and the many likes I was greeted (and big-head), I commit this legendary video to my blog…
What ingenious comedic moment rings true for you?
