Weekend Writing Prompt — Zany

“It has to be the Three Stooges,” Dave said.

“Nah, they weren’t zany,” Chuck said, “they were slapstick. “I’m going with the Marx Brothers.”

“Oh yeah,” Dave countered, “what about Abbott and Costello or Laurel and Hardy?”

“Monty Python was the very definition of zany,” Chuck said.

“The Smothers Brothers.”

“Martin and Lewis.”

“Donald Trump.”

“He’s not zany. He’s just plain crazy.”

(62 words)

Written for this week’s Weekend Writing Prompt from Sammi Cox, where the word is “zany.” Who do you think was (or is) the zaniest comedy team?

    He did participate in pro-wrestling performance/drama/farce. And it seems that wasn’t zany or crazy enough.

    You reminded me, there was a documentary on here last week, I caught the end. About Stan Laurel. Might have been about them both, but Hardy had died by the time I started watching. He spent his last days living with his wife in a motel (it sounded like they lived there by choice). All the stars of the time still wanted to meet him. It seemed a really lowkey way for what was presumably a successful career to end.

      Yes, “crazy” is an understatement.
