Had a chance to see the Smothers Brothers at the Grand Opera House on Monday and pick up a signed copy of the book about their career, “Dangerously Funny“, which focuses on their trouble with censors and the politicians during the shooting of their Comedy Hour show. It was a great show, lots of laughs, and everything I expected it to be. However, with the exception of a few jokes about Sarah Palin, I suspect that their show hasn’t changed much over the years. I think Tommy is wearing the same Yo-Yo Man shirt that he wore when I saw him in Vegas ten years ago. But we enjoyed it tremendously!
I could tell you that I put up a picture of Dick Smother’s bass because I respected the rules about “no photography during the show”, but that wouldn’t be true. Fact is, I can’t figure out how to take good pictures of a well lit stage using my GF1. It over exposes horribly. If anyone has some suggestions, please pass them along.
