Publisher's Summary

Bob and Ray's whimsically ridiculous dialogues and subtly satirical glances at the world have graced local and network radio, television, movies, and commercials for over 50 years. Their skits have also been collected into 3 delightful books, and this audio rendition consists of routines from the third book. Bob and Ray introduce such classic characters as Elmer Stapley, the Word Wizard; Holden Merkley, noted economist and comparison shopper; and roving literary critic Ward Stuffer.


What the Critics Say

"...satire, non-sequiturs, wordplay... brilliant comedy." (The Washington Post)
"...their comic routines on a deceptively low key, gradually accelerating to blissfully dizzy heights and finally leaving their audiences howling." (The New York Times)
