Improv Playhouse Summer Radio Theater
"The Best of Fibber McGee and Molly"
A radio show that played a major role in determining the full form of what became classic, old-time radio. The series was a pinnacle of American popular culture from its 1935 premiere until its demise in 1959. One of the longest-running comedies in the history of classic radio in the United States, Fibber McGee and Molly has stood the test of time in many ways, transcending the actual or alleged limitations of its medium, form and concurrent culture.

"It Pays to be Ignorant"

A radio comedy show which maintained its popularity during a nine-year run on three networks for such sponsors as Philip Morris, Chrysler and DeSoto.

The series was a spoof on the authoritative, academic discourse evident on such authoritative panel series as Quiz Kids and Information Please, while the beginning of the program parodied the popular quiz show, Doctor I.Q.. With announcers Ken Roberts and Dick Stark, the program was broadcast on Mutual from June 25, 1942 to February 28, 1944, on CBS from February 25, 1944 to September 27, 1950 and finally on NBC from July 4, 1951 to September 26, 1951.

and the classic

"Who's On First"
Descended from turn-of-the-century burlesque sketches like "The Baker Scene" (the shop is located on Watt Street) and "Who Dyed" (the owner is named Who), the Who's on First routine was made most famous by the comic duo Abbott and Costello.

Come and see how live radio was performed way back when!  With David Brian Stuart, Barb Selvaggio, Eric Schaefges, Egon Shein, Jackie Koukol, Joyce Lee, Ben Sanders, and Steve Willie running live sound EFX.
