Classic Frasier

HILARIOUS bit from "Frasier" - '95

If the writing and acting are still as good as this, the return of Frasier is sure to be a hit (for me at least).

Here, Frasier is trying to get some sleep but external forces (Eddie and Niles’s starter’s pistol) are getting in his way. My favourite line has to be this:

Niles: And there’s no need to get snippy; accidents happen, you know.

Frasier: Oh I’m sorry, was I snippy? I didn’t realize it was too much to ask that there not be GUNPLAY IN MY LIVING ROOM!

No one does acerbic wit and sarcasm quite like Frasier Crane.

How did Frasier afford his Seattle apartment on a radio show host's wage?

During my Frasier journey, I found myself asking certain questions time and time again. Will Frasier ever stop getting hoisted by his own petard? How did the dog who plays Eddie become such a good actor? Why is this fake National cover of the Frasier theme song better than every other National song? God, Niles is so horny. (More of a comment than a question.) And, most importantly: How the hell did Frasier afford his apartment?

Update: Apparently, a Frasier writer revealed why: they decided he’d “invested the money from his Boston practice very wisely (perhaps in a friend’s Seattle software start-up)”. Thanks to @scottgal for the info and the article he referenced!

A Bloodborne comic but it stars Frasier and Niles Crane

I’ve never played Bloodborne but I did watch Frasier and that’s all that matters in this hilarious comic by Joe Chouinard. And if you didn’t read this in their voices, you’re not a true fan!

Speaking of Frasier, here are some of Niles’s best deep burns.

Frasier might be coming back and while I’m not sure it’s going to be the same (especially without Martin Crane RIP), I’m looking forward to more of Niles Crane’s scathing comments.

While Frasier could throw some decent intellectual punches, Niles’s delivery sliced through to the point of speechlessness. And now you can watch not 50 but 100 examples of his witty comebacks.

And as for the Frasier revival?

“We’ve got a couple of TV things coming up, a possible Frasier reboot […] We’re getting a script now and we’ve pitched the idea, we’re putting it out there.”

Let’s see how many burns Niles can fit in for that. In the meantime, stream 100 of his best below.
