EP171: Fenneman’s Mouth


By Andy Duncan.
Read by Jared Axelrod (of The Voice of Free Planet X).

“Fenneman?”

The studio audience laughed loudly, as it always did when Groucho
turned, in mock desperation or annoyance, to his long-suffering,
hopelessly square announcer. Groucho’s voice slightly increased in
pitch whenever he said Fenneman’s name, as if he were just at the edge
of losing his celebrated cool. This half-squawk had been funny in the
stateroom scene of A Night at the Opera (“Steward! Steward!”), and
it was still funny on You Bet Your Life twenty-five years later. He
was a pro, Groucho was, and I did right by him; I modulated that pitch
myself.

Rated R. Contains profanity, and real and simulated persons behaving badly.
