The Comedy-O-Rama Hour
Camp Waterlogg: Peter Bergman and the End of the World
With special guest star Philip Proctor
Philip Proctor says, ''Peter Bergman and the End of the World is a piece I was inspired to write after losing my dear friend, collaborator and Firesign partner to leukemia in March 2012. I chose to premiere the story on Comedy-O-Rama because of my admiration for Joe and Lorie's comic consistency over the years and because I know that their audience is the perfect place to perpetuate the memory of Peter's genius and stimulate an online interest in his legacy through Radio Free Oz, The Firesign Theatre and Proctor & Bergman. I know Peter would've loved it… Thanks, J & L ~ Philip!''
