An Evening With Mike Nichols & Elaine May

When I was about 10 years old I watched a movie called "Catch-22". I remember not really understanding it, but I liked it. It was directed by a man named MIKE NICHOLS and I had not yet seen "The Graduate" or "Carnal Knowledge". Anyway, after awhile I gathered that he was involved in the theater and had a Broadway success with a woman named ELAINE MAY back in 1960 called "An Evening With Mike Nichols & Elaine May" which was directed by ARTHUR PENN. It's funny, because all three of these people later became Hollywood directors.
The years went by and I only had a vague notion of what this Broadway show was like: a lot of improvisation, just two people up there on stage creating characters, and the fact that it was a huge success. One day I was at my friend ADRIAN's house and I saw a little chunk of records so I peeped through and found "An Evening With Mike Nichols And Elaine May". Needless to say I borrowed it and this is what I have here.The track I posted reminds me a little of the SCTV bit "The Sammy Maudlin Show" which was done about 20 years later. Special note: I think Elaine May is fox.
