In the 70s, one of the funniest comedy teams was the Firesign Theater (Phil Austin, Peter Bergman, David Ossman, and Philip Proctor). They produced several albums of comedy skits, often poking fun of popular culture, current events, and politics.
Their skits always went off in unexpected tangents, creating hilarious and memorable situations.
One of my favorite characters was Nick Danger, a parody of old time radio show detectives like Phillip Marlow and Sam Space, for example. It doesn’t hurt that I’m a fan and collector of OTR shows and thus get all the references.
The record The Adventures of Nick Danger, Third Eye encompassed an entire vinyl album. I think, but I’m not sure, one of characters inspired the pizza place known as Rocky Rococo’s.
In honor of Firesign Theater, I present that album. Enjoy.
