Mark's blog is currently having technical difficulties, so he can't announce the exciting news about the celebrities he met last night while working on a show in Boston:
Look, everyone, it's the SMOTHERS BROTHERS!
"The Smothers Brothers are an American music-and-comedy team, consisting of the brothers Tom ('Tommy') and Dick Smothers. The brothers' trademark act was performing folk songs (Tommy on acoustic guitar, Dick on string bass), which usually led to arguments between the siblings. Tommy's signature line was, 'Mom always liked you best!' Tommy (the elder of the two) acted 'slow,' and Dick, the straight man, acted 'superior.' ...
They continue to tour the country as the longest-lived comedy team in history; 2008 marks their 50th year performing together."
My husband-to-be...always offering new horizons to moi, like being one degree from the a legendary American comedic duo (who he said were only minimally funny, but maybe because us kids these days have different comedic sensibilities?)
