Happy 88th Birthday, Bob Elliott!

March 28th, 2011 by Kay Weiss · No Comments · Author/Narrator News

March 26th was the 88th birthday of Bob Elliott, of the hugely influential comedy team Bob and Ray. We have been honored here at HighBridge to publish The Very Best of Bob and Ray, and it has been great pleasure to get to know the amazing body of work these underrated legends of comedy created. If you ever need a well-timed reminder not to take yourself too seriously, Bob and Ray have you covered.

One of my all-time personal favorites: Reuniting the Whirleys. I just love how ho-hum these long-parted siblings are about seeing one other. Happy enough, but completely uninterested in altering their emotions or behavior for the sake of the show. Whenever I see Kristen Wiig do her Extreme Home Makover bit on SNL, I expect her to slip in a credit for Bob and Ray. They deserve that and more. Happy Birthday, Bob.
