Greatest Dope Story Ever Told

Someone finally uploaded one of the funniest comedy routines ever done by the late, great Ron Shock. It’s called the greatest dope story ever told. It’s a long story in his thick southern drawl about smoking the best marijuana ever. It’s absolutely worth listening to.

About Ed Brayton

After spending several years touring the country as a stand up comedian, Ed Brayton tired of explaining his jokes to small groups of dazed illiterates and turned to writing as the most common outlet for the voices in his head. He has appeared on the Rachel Maddow Show and the Thom Hartmann Show, and is almost certain that he is the only person ever to make fun of Chuck Norris on C-SPAN.

    Ha ha ha. I saw the word “dope” and thought this was going to be about a Republican candidate for some office.

    I thought it would be about one of Hambone’s supporters in the Great Debate.

    “… It’s a long story in his thick southern drawl about smoking the best marijuana ever…”

    No wonder you gave up stand-up Ed, you really undersell the routine.

    I kept expecting the Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers to make an appearance during that story.

    Funny, but I think The Smoke Off by Shel Silverstein — yes, THAT Shel Silverstein — is funnier. Better is to find a recording of him reading it.

    That is not by any means a thick southern drawl…

    Terribly OT, but I’ve noticed for a few days that Ed’s Recent Postings aren’t.

    Seems not to be updating.

    Does anyone else notice, or is it just me?

    It’s not just you.

    Well that’s sixteen minutes of my life I’ll never get back.

    He’s a good storyteller, but I didn’t think it was funny. I’ve never been stoned. It felt a little like being the only sober person at a party where the main topic of conversation is how drunk everyone is. Never really been drunk, either.

    Do not invite me anywhere fun.

    @dingojack #7 – Many thanks. I have two of his albums, and it never occurred to me to look on YouTube.

  • Sunday Afternoon

    And there was me thinking “Greatest Dope Story” = Lance Armstrong until I saw the still in the Youtube video…

  • scorinth

    I’ve heard some really good, hilarious comedy routines involving getting high, but the joke in the good ones is rarely “we were *so* stoned, man”. Maybe the story of the greatest dope, but not the greatest “dope story.”

  • dingojack

    “The greatest dope story ever told”?

    Wait – is this the one starring Charlton Heston and John Wayne (with a cast of a thousand stoners)?
