Rather old, this one, but in 1999 the GB coxless four and the Australian coxless four rowed together in an eight for some promotional photos - after paddling around for the cameras, they decided to take the rate up - at which point: "The best Veteran-B oarsman in the world promptly caught a massive crab, and his handle knocked him back, leaving him lying flat on his back with his head in Matt Pinsent's lap!"

Not comedy rowing as such, but I thought this was the best place to put the link. It's amazing how the guy from JET has managed to get everything in focus, except for the women's 1st VIII (4 comments...)
Hopefully this link is correct (can't tell as I'm running a text-only browser until I get my new computer on Monday). Somewhere in there (I think just past the middle) is the FaT Men's IV, showing a Mr. W. A. Thorne catching in perfect time with everybody else. Ahem. There's also some good rowing. Bonus points for anybody who can make out the Leander IV+ with Pinsent and Cracknell in for more than a complete stroke from this quality piece of footage... (1 comment...)
