“The Beatles of comedy”
Library of Congress
“The Firesign Theatre is a comedy group that uses the recording studio at least
as brilliantly as any rock group...”
“...[Firesign is] the funniest team in America
today, combining elements of W C Fields, James Joyce, Lord Buckley, contemporary
television and Thirties radio, scrambling it all up in a collective
consciousness that defies description, and then spewing it out in a free-form
half-hour epic presentation of sheer insanity.
...Their timing is dynamite, their dialog kaleidoscopic, and their satire is, so to speak, acidic.
WAITING FOR THE ELECTRICIAN...a masterpiece of paranoia.”
Ed Ward, Rolling Stone
