Clifton Fadiman talks to Fred Allen

Filed under: Old-Time Radio — Charlie Summers @ 11:22 am

I know, gentle reader, I have been considerably lax in blog/podcast entries lately, but forgive the personal matters which prevented me from staying on top of things as much as I’d like.

A while ago, there was considerable discussion on the Internet OTR Digest. about the humor of Fred Allen. Some folks on the Digest appreciated it, others did not. Our friend Bill Scherer provided us with this episode of Conversations with Clifton Fadiman, aired as a tribute shortly after Fred’s death, where Fred Allen and Gilbert Seldes discuss comedy in general, and much more.

Whether you are a fan of Allen or not, I think you’ll find this to be a fascinating interview.
