Remembering the Funny Side of George Harrison

To remember George Harrison on the anniversary of his death, I thought it would be good to celebrate his humorous side. Here he is on Saturday Night Live. The show had promised $3000 to the Beatles if they reunited on the show. George showed up hoping to collect the entire reward:

George also supported Monty Python and appeared on Eric Idle's TV show, though he didn't exactly cooperate when they wanted him to sing instead of pretend to be a pirate:

Even his music videos exhibited his sly sense of humor and a willingness to poke fun at himself and his problems:

That's why, in my heart, George and the rest of the Beatles will be forever Fab:

Not here for the Pirate Song but the Pirate Skit - funny.

And he was on The Simpsons, though as a straight man to Homer.

Thanks, Alex!

Pat, yes, that was good too! (I wish I'd remembered that one for my post.)
