Subject: BS: greatest written comedy
Hey kids! It's time again for Fred's fun threads! Okay!

I've been reading Nickolai Gogol's stuff to my kids. Weirdly, they got into his short play Marriage, and so, we're starting into The Government Inspector, which may be my favorite comedy ever written. Anybody have other favorite funny pages? For some reason it's important to me to pass a serious love of funny stuff to my unfortunate cursed spawn.
