Tom Hanks Brings the Funny

One of the problems with actors who win fame and acclaim doing comedy and go on to do more serious work is that they often come to think that doing something funny is beneath them.  As much as The Curmudgeon has come to admire Steve Martin, and that’s a lot, you won’t catch Martin doing the arrow-through-his-head thing anymore just to get an easy laugh.  And “happy feet”?  Long gone.

But Tom Hanks is not one of those actors.

Hanks is never too serious to take a few minutes to bring the funny.  The Curmudgeon has already featured Hanks’s great, Ron Howard-directed spoof of Toddlers and Tiaras, and now, here’s some slam poetry about an unlamented television sitcom.

Happy Memorial Day.  Enjoy.
