NOT INSANE 2020! Hello & Goodbye Tour with David Ossman at the Clyde
February 9, 2019, 2 p.m. Matinee at the Clyde Theatre, Langley, Washington.
THE FIRESIGN THEATRES DAVID OSSMAN
NOT INSANE 2020!
The Hello & Goodbye Tour
The Firesign Theatre altered a lot of consciousness in the Sixties and Seventies with its psychedelic comedy albums and surreal stage shows, including a sold-out Carnegie Hall performance. The foursome continued writing and performing together over forty years, making gold-medal radio programs and Grammy-nominated albums well into the 21st Century.
David Ossman, who created Firesign in 1966 with Phil Proctor and their late partners Peter Bergman and Phil Austin, is now 82 and looks forward to meeting and entertaining the fans who love Firesign and have laughed along with them for decades. The groups vast archive has recently been acquired by the Library of Congress, which dubbed them the Beatles of comedy and an American treasure. Its time for me to say Hello and Goodbye, says Ossman, because I still can.
Ossman brings Firesign to life with rare early TV performances, and looks back at his own career as a young poet in New York, a pioneer of FM and public radio, a Surrealist Party candidate for Vice President of the U.S., a grandfatherly ant in A Bugs Life, a memoirist, novelist, and collagist.
For the Second Act of NOT INSANE! Ossman will be joined on stage by The Road Wranglers Chris Harshman, Keegan Harshman, and Mickey Grimm, as he performs The Old Cart Wranglers Saga, a full-length comic monologue by playwright Brian Price.
NOT INSANE! is produced and directed by Judith Walcutt.
Proceeds of ticket sales go to support Hearts and Hammers of South Whidbey.
