I'm amazed we got to 8 pages of this thread without Tom Lehrer





One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

Tom Lehrer spent most of his career as a mathematics professor but had a few years in the early 1960's where he was on the stage performing his songs. Go searching for more Del, he is brilliant.

I have been Mad. :D

Really really great dark humour usually comes from people with a high intellect.


I am trying to remember a brilliant American comedian who does dark humour. Its very political and indepth but funny!

I spent Monday driving 3 hours each way to Harrogate (with six hours at a trade fair in the middle) all done in the pouring rain. I got there listening to a CD of Peter Sellers and 2 CDs of Spike Milligan and got back listening to 3 CDs of Tom Lehrer :)

I was only mildly suicidal by the time I got home :roll:

This is another song by Tom Lehre (how on Earth do you post these things???): http://youtu.be/A9BMcA8-4zo

We put on a production of Oedipus at school and we joked about making it a musical... and it's surprising how much fun it is to put on such a morbid play... (this song might have helped the jovial mood....)

Take everything after the last slash and copy and paste it between the YouTube BBCode brackets. Like so:

Code: Select all

"There's sex and death and human grime/In monochrome for one thin dime..."

Actually, that reminds me of a rather macabre and darkly funny song. This Vicious Cabaret from the graphic novel V for Vendetta. Warning, there's some offensive terms, but there's a point, given that it's commenting on a facist state...
