Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
FS are, imo, the true successors to the Goons, not Monty Python. There - I've said it. The sky will now fall in.

It had to be said.

As they were local colonials growing up with Buffalo Springfield as neighbors, Firesign Theater were definitely the clever ones for us. They were fun to watch on stage, their lines were fun to learn. And, of course, they were political.

We only got a touch of the Goons, though I had some of their scripts. And from that I would have to agree; the clever threads, brilliant asides, were not matched by most of the Python stuff that we 'murkins would see (only in the movies)...

Never underestimate their intelligence, always underestimate their knowledge.
