Quite possibly. What got me on this subject? Well, I've been watching The Scottish Falsetto Sock Puppet Theater, which I just discovered last night. He's done adaptations of Macbeth, A Christmas Carol, and others. I was surprised to see he's done this famous Abbott and Costello routine. Imagine doing this routine when baseball is a foreign sport to you! I mean, I couldn't do cricket humor convincingly. I suppose it's helped by the fact that there are a lot more worldwide hits that are baseball movies than are cricket movies.

This routine is bulletproof. With the exception of baseball terminology, it uses concepts and words from Standard English. It can be delivered by anyone who knows English. Of course, Abbott and Costello delivered it best, but others, even non-comedians, can deliver this routine and crack an audience up.
