It’s safe to say that, over the years, our sense of humor has evolved. There are jokes that were absolutely hilarious in the our parents’ and grandparents’ time that are, unfortunately, no longer understood today. And I’m sure that much of what we find funny today wouldn’t be amusing to those who are older than us. But there’s a special kind of humor that is eternal, that transcends generations and trends. And the ever-charming comedienne who can deliver such humor with ease? The well-known and loved Lucille Ball, of course!

The I Love Lucy star’s career encompassed more than just the sitcom, but a whole range of comedic bits that were featured on television. A perfect example is a 1966 episode of The Lucy Show, with George Burns as a guest.

The hilarious duo brings their comedy A-game in a rapid back-and-forth of words in which the jokes never cease. George Burns cleverly sets Lucille Ball up for a punchline, and they just keep on coming! The actress’s hilarious retorts earn her hysterical laughs from the audience — and when you watch the clip, you’ll double over in laughter, too!
