Happy Birthday, Dad!

As some of you may or may not know, I have my father to thank for introducing me to the wonderful world of slapstick. I grew up watching a lot of Laurel & Hardy with him. At a very early age I understood why they were his favorite comedians, and they quickly became mine as well. Decades later I eventually discovered Harry Langdon by way of one of Robert Youngson’s documentaries.  He quickly knocked Stan and Ollie out of the top place, but they were still and have always been a close second of my all time favorite comedians.  Today is my dad’s birthday, so I thought I’d share a photo of Harry with The Boys in honor of him.  Thanks for all the great memories, dad, and happy birthday!
