Stuart Birnbaum and Matt Neuman were interviewed about “The Chicken Little Comedy Show”, just picked up by KEMO-TV San Francisco, on the talk show “Headshop” hosted by Elliot Mintz. KTTV-Metromedia, Los Angeles 1972
This sketch is a parody of Ingmar Bergman’s “The Seventh Seal” where Max Von Sydow plays chess with death. In the Chicken Little version, Stuart Birnbaum plays Monopoly. It was filmed on location by Neil Montone with his 16mm Arriflex.
WAN VAL DEZ
Stuart Birnbaum: This sketch was a parody of a then popular (1972) Colombian Coffee Advertising campaign, featuring a fictitious coffee bean grower, Juan Valdez. In the Chicken Little version, Juan is a cruel capitalist overseer, exploiting the peasants. And BTW – he’s not growing coffee, but weed. This bit was so far ahead of its time, my head spins! 🙂
Stuart Birnbaum: The parody of a then popular bra commercial featured a nun (Elisa Leonelli) tightening her bra straps and caressing her breasts. It was broadcast live on KEMO-TV in San Fransciso in 1972 on “The Chicken Little Comedy Show.” Unthinkable at the time.
Matt Neuman as the patient of a Nazi dentist, Dr. Heinrich “Heine” Von Stillborn, played by Stuart Birnbaum. (We don’t have a video of this sketch in our archives)
