Chap,

I don’t recall these PSAs. I haven’t had any luck with Google. There are too many hits near my search terms. Perhaps someone with better Google skills can find something.

I've been trying to remember the details of a PSA that was played during the late '60s / early '70s. I believe it was part of a group of PSAs celebrating American excellence.

It began with a series of audio clips of American standup comedians (Abbot & Costello, Jack Benny, etc.) delivering their signature boffo jokes and one-liners. ("Look, bud - your money or your life." "I'm thinking it over!").

This was followed by a sepulchral male voice that began "The - American - Comic," and went on to eulogize these artists in deep, ponderous tones. The incongruity used to crack up me and my sibs, and I even remember our father responding to some silly wisecrack one of us made by murmuring "The American Comic..."

Does this ring a bell for anyone?
