Lisa USA : LOL! This routine never gets old 😂😂😂

Cool Products : "ALRIGHT WHEN YOU PAY THE FIRST BASEMAN WHO GETS PAID?" "Every dollar of it" genius

Robert Della Croce : Fun fact: my father and his co-worker used to do this routine and always wondered why there wasn’t a right fielder, so they made one up. Nobody. Think of the possibilities When there’s a fly ball to right field, who’s going to catch it? Nobody. Nobody? You mean to tell me that nobody is going to catch the ball? Every time, I tell ya, on this team Nobody’s a good player

Master Leguichard : It's ridiculous how re-watchable this is. I only discovered it some months ago, and I can watch it literally every couple weeks and it's still equally funny. This might be the best comedy routine of the 20th century. Or ever.

Unicorn Sparkle1225 : “I DON’T GIVE A DARN!” “What did you say?” “I don’t give a darn!” “Oh that’s our shortstop.” Edit: Thanks for the likes!

Doctor Soles11 : a remarkable performance. That's why its stood THA TEST OF TIME. friggin classic

Matt Flynn : An immortal comedy skit that proves that delivery is everything. The gag itself is pretty simple, but it's the way Bud and Lou deliver it and play off each other that makes it a classic.

Owen Roberts : COSTELLO: I'm not asking you who's on second! ABBOTT: Who's on first. COSTELLO: I don't know. BOTH: Third base.

Brad Fry : 2.9 k people who gave this thumbs down does not know comedy

Aniquin : My algebra teacher in middle school, an old Italian guy named Mr. Cicero, loved Abbot and Costello. To this day, the funniest thing I've ever experienced was when he did the "Who's on first?" routine with my buddy Joseph, and Joe took so long to catch on that he played Costello's part perfectly. Timeless comedy and that memory will stick with me forever.

Bruno : Imagine these guys trying to defuse a bomb.

Randy Hardin : I do not understand how anyone could give this a thumbs down.

David Klecker : The amount of time and talent it took to rehearse not only this but to make sure you don't break routine and laugh. One of the best comedic duos of all time.

jim geiser : Bud Abbott and Lou Costello are the only actors/comedians who are in the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, NY.

Muttley McLad : If laughter is the best medicine then i want this on repeat prescription for the rest of my days.

Patrick's Crazy Place : I can't tell you how many times somebody has said "I don't know" and I'll just say "Third Base" to reference the bit. The confused looks make it all the better. I love this bit so much!

Craig Amos : So I had something similar happen to me when I flew into Moscow 20 years ago. I asked the driver of the car what does "Я не знаю" mean in English since I kept hearing people saying this on the plane on the flight over. She said "I don't know" and I said.. What how could you not know what that means... everyone on the plane was speaking Russian and so obviously you should know what that means. After about 2 minutes of back and forth with her she finally explained " It means I DON"T KNOW"

55DepotStreet : Notice Abbot never looks at the audience, keeping the attention on Costello. By the middle of the routine, they are such a tight rhythm you can tap your foot to it. Absolutely one of the best comedy sketches of all time! It is amazing.

Lee Sandro : I must have seen this one hundred times and it still does not get old.

Brian Thorstad : "I don't give a darn...he's our short stop." - what a close to a hilarious classic! Worthy of LOL

Nox Lunaria : 2018! Who's watching this in 2018? Yes, of course he is.

godless heathen : Very funny routine that has stood the test of time...and not a single swear word to be heard..today's comedians can learn something from these two legends..

michael hutchings : I am awed by the hours upon hours and years upon years they spent honing their craft.... its perfect

Zacco : who is watching in 2018

AshLee R Parker : "That's the first thing you've said right." "I DON'T KNOW WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT!!!" I'm☠️

Mark Raum : Had to memorize this routine for a high school play 40 years ago....took my friend and I 3 Months prior to play to get it right

Glenn Griffon : 2018's coming to a close and this is still the best comedic routine ever.

Midgard Eagle : Why have I not watched this sketch before? It's freaking genius!

Anona Mouse : I don't believe even the late great George Carlin could hit this peak.
