George Goble did a skit on his show which I think is one of the funniest I have ever seen. George enters an apartment,
sits in a chair and begins reading the newspaper. A woman enters though a bedroom door with a suitcase. She announces
in a British accent that she is leaving him and running off another man, that he (her husband) never pays any attention
to her, etc. All this while George is hidden behind the newspaper. A short while after she leaves, the apartment door
open again and a man walks in, sees George behind the newspaper, check the apartment number on the door, and announces,
again with a British accent, that George has got the wrong apartment again. George gets up, goes to the door and checks it.
Apologizes as he leaves, then turns and announces to the man, "By the way, your wife is leaving you" and closes the door.
Do you know which episode this skit was in, and if so, if it is available to buy? Has it ever been put on DVD?
And if the former is true, how could I get it?
