Description
Four devilishly clever comedians were responsible for this madhouse of hilarity in both London and New York: Alan Bennett, Peter Cook, Jonathan Miller and Dudley Moore. Their skits include one about an impassioned preacher whose emotion carries him so far from the text that he can't find his way back. There's a delicious spoof on Shakespeare in beautifully faked speech, and a couple of panel scenes, in one, three experts on nuclear war clobber the subject to death. And these are but samples of a grab bag of highly intellectual fun.
