It's hard to see the old comics go like this. Comedy is very different today and say what you will about censorship, when comedians couldn't rely
on cheap, blatant references to bodily functions and genitalia, they had to work harder for a laugh and the result was classic. Some of WC Fields
best humor came from his doing his best to circumvent the censors, but Godfrey Daniel and Effingham Hufnagel are a long way from the flagrant crudity
of today's humor.
