Frank & Al’s Vegetable Boutique.
Scott and I were at WJPZ in Syracuse, doing some overnight production, when this punfest started to take shape. This one was one of the first comedy scripts picked up by the syndicators – they didn’t like our delivery, and ended up voicing them in house. Scott and I wrote at least a dozen or so scripts for Frank & Al in the same vein – lots of bad puns – but they did it with 2 actors , instead of Scott’s dulcimer tones reading it in a singsongy, bland voice.
I still liked Scott’s version better.
Same Skit – Live at the Grog, Newburyport, MA 1987 – Somehow we turned it into a skit with me doing a literal showing of the vegetables, since it was just a list of puns. It’s the only time we tried to do it onstage. Fun in a goofy way. Enjoy.
