Podcasts are a wonderful source of information and a newer way to help build an author’s platform. But you need the right equipment. That microphone needs to work.
Today’s video sketch is called “The Worst Mic Ever.” Considering it features Tim Conway, you must watch to enjoy the hilarity.

This did not, thank God, happen to me. It happened to a friend who has never been allowed to forget it.
Microphones, I’ll tell you now
(and this is on the level)
can be examples of just how
things are sent us by the devil.
They may squeak or they may hiss,
or just cut off, making things tense,
but you can bet they’ll never miss
the slightest hint of flatulence,
which will be broadcast far and wide,
a speaker’s worst disaster,
for there is not a place to hide
as silence follows after
leading to consideration
of a Trappist monk’s vocation.
Love the poem!

This is why Tim Conway was so brilliant – his timing. It’s always spot on.
I love Tim Conway! I’ve worked in production and watched people grab mics and cables. So funny. Passed this on to my IT cohorts. Thanks for the Friday laugh, Steve!
Thank you so very much, Mr. Laub. This was such a treat. I laughed and laughed. Thank you for all the great “Fun Friday” entries. God bless you. Kay Hall
Brilliant. Sending to my husband. He was our congregation’s sound guy, then video guy. Just brilliant!
Technology–fantastic when it’s working. Nightmare when it isn’t. Thoroughly enjoyed this. Thank you for sharing.
Great–I had to watch it a few times and sent to a few IT people I know. 🙂 🙂
Thanks for sharing his comic genius.
True story–in spite of (or maybe because of) the famous dentist sketch, I actually had a dentist by the name of Tim Conway, and he gives lectures to students at dental school (after showing the original sketch).
Thank you for for the irony and laughter.

This made me laugh so hard, the workmen in my house were concerned for my health and well-being. Thanks for bringing so much joy this week!
Gotta love Tim Conway! Thanks for the nostalgic remembrance watching The Apple Dumpling Gang as a kid. (Is there any better pair than Tim Conway and Don Knotts?) And more on subject, point made! The microphone matters!
I cackled till I cried. It doesn’t get any better than Tim Conway.
