Phil Proctor is one funny guy! This member of the Firesign Theater, a hilarious comedy team with a surreal sense of humor, had us in stitches when he recently came into the studio. He shared how the group began, the inspiration for “Don’t Crush That Dwarf, Hand Me the Pliers” “Waiting for the Electrician, or Someone Like Him,” and “How Can you Be in Two Places at Once,” among other albums, as well as their books.
Of course, he paid tribute to Peter Bergman, who’s untimely passing was about three weeks ago. Phil remembers Peter with humor, affection, and a hand picked Nick Danger, Third Eye clip featuring Peter on the mic.
Phil’s interview was too much for one broadcast to hold! So a portion of the Phil’s in-studio wit will be posted on our Internet-only podcast series, “After Hours.” You won’t want to miss him telling the story of the naked Sunday school teacher and the wrestler.
