Austin Witty Limits

I just heard that Phil Austin of the Firesign Theatre passed way on June 19 at the age of 74. While it’s true he was definitely not a household name (and it’s doubtful most people could even pick any of the Firesigners out of a line up), I have always been entertained by the group’s comedy, having first heard some of their sketches when I was in junior high. If you’re not familiar with Austin or the work of Firesign Theatre, then treat yourself to the piece that introduced me to their delightful antics – The Further Adventures of Nick Danger, Third Eye.
