Sammy Allred of the Geezinslaws performs two of his classic joke routines.
The Geezinslaws were one of country’s best musical comedy duos. From 1963 to 2005, Sammy Allred and Dewayne “Son’ Smith toured, recorded albums and occasionally appeared on television, bringing their country-themed jokes to audiences across the nation.
Allred was the jokester while Son would often remain stone-faced, as you’ll see in this clip from their appearance on Nashville Now in 1987. Here, Allred delivers his classic suit routine.
And here’s Allred telling another of his classic routines, the “Bird Joke.”
What do you think? Genuinely funny or a little too “yuk-yuk”? If you can match Allred’s timing and delivery, the bird bit is a good one to tell when your friends ask if you know any jokes.
