Comedy wordplay

One of my favourite scenes from the shamefully cancelled Naked Gun series in the 1980s

“When I first heard the shot. As I turned Jim fell”

“He’s the teller Frank”

“Jim Fells the teller?”

“No Jim Johnson.”

“Who’s Jim Fell?”

“He’s the auditor frank”

“He had the flu so Jim filled in.”

“Phil who?”

“Phil Dinn, he’s the night watchman Frank…”

 

In the same vein as the infamous


And my favourite Abbott and Costello sketch
