Episode 3 – The Smothers Brothers – Live at the Purple Onion

Purple Onion

Finally!  We cover The Smothers Brothers’s’s first album.  This album helped the duo achieve the kind of notoriety that informs the success of every folk comedy… duo… since.  Actually, the form was so unique that they cut out a place for themselves in the world of comedy that, eventually, made them two of the most influential voices in the history of modern comedy.

  1. These guys (and Bill Cosby) were my introduction to comedy. My very first comedy LP was “Mom Always Liked You Best”. My second was Cosby’s “Why Is There Air?”.

    Oh, how I wish I was in Peoria.
