Description
Like the Firesign Theatre, the Credibility Gap—Harry Shearer, David L. Lander, Michael McKean, and Richard Beebe—created dense, counterculture humor that lampooned sacred cows and shibboleths alike. This 1977 release includes a rock 'n' roll version of the famous Abbott & Costello routine "Who's on First?"; ersatz radio ads based on ethnic stereotypes (with some potent racial slurs used satirically); parodies of government figures ("Tricia's Honeymoon," "The L.B.J. Tape," "Senator Kennedy's Next Speech"); and "The World's Greatest Man Pageant." Having used the Credibility Gap as a whetstone to sharpen his humor, Shearer went on to such projects as This is Spinal Tap, Best in Show, and A Mighty Wind.
