Readers of New Jersey Monthly learned that 'Jersey is Funny' when the magazine named 12 funny New Jerseyans to the comedy issue Hall of Fame.
Our old buddy Uncle Floyd Vivino made the list at number 8.
According to the magazine, funnier than Floyd are: Jerry Lewis; Lou Costello; Bud Abbott, Kevin Smith; Richard Lewis, Ernie Kovacs; Janeane Garofolo; and Flip Wilson.
Not as funny as Floyd are: Joe Piscopo; Jon Stewart, Danny DeVito and Bill Maher.
In honor of Floyd's honor, we reprinted our 1977 articles about his TV show. You can find links to the four articles at Anthony's World.
