Battle of the Bands – A Twisted Christmas Battle

Happy Holidays! Christmas is upon us so I thought I’d put together a twisted Christmas battle. The following are two video Christmas skits (well, one is more audio actually) so please give a listen and let me know which one you like better.

 

Jeff Foxworthy: Redneck 12 Days of Christmas

In case you’re not familiar with Jeff Foxworthy, he is an American stand-up comedian, actor, television and radio personality, author, and voice artist. He is a member of the Blue Collar Comedy Tour, a comedy troupe which also comprises Larry the Cable Guy, Bill Engvall, and Ron White. Known for his “You might be a redneck” one-liners, Foxworthy has released six major-label comedy albums. His first two albums were each certified 3× Platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America. Foxworthy has written several books based on his redneck jokes, as well as an autobiography entitled No Shirt, No Shoes… No Problem!

Here is his Redneck 12 Days of Christmas:

 

 

Cheech & Chong: Santa Claus and His Old Lady

Cheech & Chong are a Grammy Award–winning comedy duo consisting of Richard “Cheech” Marin and Tommy Chong who found a wide audience in the 1970s and 1980s for their films and stand-up routines, which were based on the hippie and free love era, and especially drug and counterculture movements, most notably their love for cannabis.

Here is their story of Santa Claus:

  1. Hello,
    I have to admit I love both of them. They are wonderfully done. However, I am going to vote for Redneck’s 12 Days of Christmas because I couldn’t stop laughing. Thanks for the laughs this morning.

  2. Hi, Michele!

    I’m happy to see a band battle from you today. I am familiar with both artists in this showdown. Mrs. Shady and I are longtime fans of Jeff Foxworthy and Bill Engvall. In my younger years I owned a few Cheech & Chong records. in my opinion one of these acts, Jeff Foxworthy, is genuinely laugh out loud funny and I never get tired of his redneck observations. On the other hand I never fully embraced the comedy style of Cheech & Chong, don’t find anything particularly funny about habitual drug use, and quickly grew tired of their shtick. This was an easy decision for me. I vote for Jeff Foxworthy’s “Redneck Twelve Days of Christmas.”

    Thank you, dear friend Michele!

    • Hi Shady. Yes, Jeff Foxworthy and his Redneck observations are quite hilarious. I love the Blue Collar Comedy Tour. I met Ron White at a book signing some years ago. He was cool. Funny. Had a glass of scotch with him while he was signing books. Ha!
      Sorry you’re not as appreciative of the Cheech & Chong humor. I think they are flat-out hysterical.

      Thanks for your vote for Jeff Foxworthy. He’s 3-0 right now…

    • I love the Blue Collar Comedy Tour! That is such great comedy! I would love to see Ron White. He’s so funny. I met him at a book signing several years ago. He was so cool. Had his signature glass of scotch with him on the table…

      Thanks for your vote. Another one for Foxworthy!

  3. MICHELE ~
    “Here I come to save the day!”
    “There’s no need to fear, Underdog is here!!”

    (OK, so I’m mixing my Underdog with my Mighty Mouse. SUE ME!)

    Ha!-Ha! You ain’t kidding, this is a “twisted BOTB” in a number of ways and… I LOVE IT!

    And thanks to your Battle, we’re finding out once and for all who the nerds are and who the cool kids are. (And so far, I’m the ONLY cool kid! It’s lonely here, busting up this shutout and waiting for the other cool kids to show up later.)

    Jeff Foxworthy is ALWAYS funny. I dig him. I especially liked the “nine years probation”. GOL!

    Who was it that I was telling lately (was it you or Mary or Debbie?) how when we were kids, my Brother and I would sneak off to our “bad neighbors” house and listen to their Cheech y Chong (CYC) records. If our parents had known… I grew up with CYC, still own their best album on compact disc, and they still make me laugh out loud! More times than not, it’s not so much WHAT they say but HOW they say it.

    And to this day, there may be no one Brother Nappy and I quote more frequently than CYC. It’s almost non-stop:
    “Hey, we did it, man! We were so slick, man!”
    “You in the vest, is it?”
    “Tell them you heard it here first on Roller Derby.”
    “What’s the hassle, man?”
    “You just gotta know how to lay it on them dudes.”

    CYC are so funny to me. And this Christmas skit is one of my favorites. A reindeer named Humberto? Santa visits “Pacoima”? (That’s a very Mexican part of Los Angeles. Maybe you gotta be an Angeleno to love that.) I listen to this skit every Christmas, and although Foxworthy is really entertaining too, CYC get my vote hands down. In fact, if I were dead and buried in Chicago, I’d vote for them seven or eight times!

    Great Battle, MIchele. You put a smile on my face, and believe me, I needed that!

    • POSTSCRIPT: Here’s another one…

      “Man, you drive just like Steve McQueen!”
      “Yeah.”

      Always a good one to use when the driver does something boneheaded.

    • Hey Stephen. YAY! Finally! A vote for the hilarious Cheech & Chong! I’m surprised more people aren’t into them. They are an absolute gas to me. I was pretty much a burnout in high school (although I still got straight As; go figure) and we “Heads” just loved that cult classic movie Up In Smoke.

      Funny that you mention quoting them. I was always quoting their line from the movie “My momma talkin’ to me tryin’ to tell me how to live / But I don’t listen to her ’cause my head is like a sieve.” haha.

      I’m so glad you voted for them. I was starting to think I’d have a shut-out on my hands…Thanks for that!
      So glad you liked my battle and that it made you laugh. THAT makes me happy! 🙂

      • “AND THEN SANTA CLAUS WOULD MAKE HIMSELF REAL SMALL. YOU KNOW, LIKE A REAL SMALL GUY?…”

        Ha!-Ha! How can ANYBODY hear that and not laugh?!

        Michele, this skit never gets old for me. You know, like, never gets old?

        • Lol. I’m so glad you like that skit. In my results post I’m going to post a video of a funny scene from Up In Smoke. You’ll have to be sure to come back to check that out. Hope you have some very happy holidays full of lots of memories of the very happy (high) holidays from the past! 🙂

  4. Michele, I think it’s interesting you used Jeff Foxworthy’s 12 Days of Christmas in your battle because I featured that in today’s sillies. 😀 Both of these parodies are great!. This is the first time I’ve listened to Cheech & Chong’s song all the way through. I never got into their whole druggie comedy skits and I remember us seeing at least their first flick in the early 80s. I think all that drug head pretense colored my ability to laugh through their silliness. I can laugh about this stuff now and see it as entertainment but I think in the end I’m giving my vote to Jeff Foxworthy because I prefer his cleaner, wholesome humor for obvious reasons. Cool battle, though. I hope you have a very Merry Christmas, my friend and may God’s blessings be with you in the coming new year! PS: I’m taking a blog break until after the first. See you in 2017!

    • How funny that you also used Jeff Foxworthy’s Redneck 12 Days of Christmas! I liked your other funnies too. 🙂

      You have a very Merry Christmas too Cathy and a magical holiday season! Enjoy your blogging break. Will look forward to seeing you in the New Year! God bless.

      And thanks for your vote! 🙂

  5. A couple of classics here! Jeff Foxworthy is from the Atlanta area; for all his talk of being a redneck, he has a degree from Georgia Tech and was a sales engineer for IBM before he got into comedy. His 12 Days of Redneck Christmas was great, but Cheech and Chong are classic. Give them my vote.

    • Another Cheech & Chong fan! Yay! I didn’t know that Foxworthy was an engineer for IBM. I bet he likes comedy so much better…
      Thanks for your vote John! Merry Christmas.

  6. Hi, Michele; Sorry to get here so late. Time just gets way from me this time of year.
    Not really a big fan of either of these acts, but both had some good bits. Overall, I think Cheech and Chong were more amusing, so give my vote to them. “Magic Dust” LOL

  7. Al Bondigas here. Great battle indeed!! I laugh hard every time I hear Jeff Foxworthy’s version of that classic, but it’s a slam dunk vote for Cheech and Chong. Stephen was not exaggerating. We have been huge fans for like, EVER. We could go on quoting them all day long with only a few dozen breaks so Stephen could quaff down a little Gran Marnier. Great battle, but I rule for Cheech and Chong. That’s it!! That’s my rulin.

  8. Well, I ain’t never been kewl. Or cool. And no use trying to start now. I think that maybe Cheech and Chong were before my time (just slightly). I was a kid in the 70s and my mom would’ve died if I’d been into them. I think I might’ve died if I’d been into them. Anyway, I never started and it never really caught on for me. And I never smoked weed. And I think they’re funny, but not hilarious like many many many people do. I love Jeff Foxworthy and his Blue Collar Comedy Tour stuff is hilarious. So, I’ll take Jeff this time.

    Great battle! Merry Christmas!!!!
