Brooks is a interesting character. While he did have a bout with alcoholism, he got out of the bottle way before cementing his drunk act. What was nuts was he was one of the best off the cuff humorists and was known by his fellow comedians for his razor sharp wit and comebacks. Deano loved the guy because he could literally set him up in anything and Brooks would kill it going in cold.

Johnny Carson gave him the rare privilege of an open door to the show and Foster developed an off shoot of the lovable lush as an NBC executive who would come on with some absolutely insane ideas to make more money for the show - dressing up the band like the Fruit of the Loom guys for additional ad revenue, investing heavily in Budweiser stock and bringing Ed a truckload of Bud to disminish the national supply over the Labor Day weekend, etc.

Not to kill the mood or anything but I find it interesting that his most famous and well received characterizations were of drunks he played while sober at the same time he struggled with alcoholism during a time when drunken but charismatic folks were celebrated.

The one with Sammy Davis Jr. is really funny too.

Thanks for reminding me how much I love Foster Brooks' act. Nothing gets me like when he says "buh-buh-bahhhrtennerr."

That being said, I don't feel like this is "contagious laughter" as much as "this comedian fucking slays". Contagious laughter is when the sheer comedy of the laughter itself is contagious. The classic example is this guy whose laugh derails the comedian's entire act.

Sorry for picking nits here, and I really do appreciate being reminded of Foster Brooks!
