This 1975 release features Proctor & Bergman in a live setting, performing much of TV Or Not TV (along with a few new sketches) in front of a live audience. The new sketches include "Fred and Ford," in which Proctor's Fred Flamm interviews Bergman's Gerald Ford during the "Walking & Chewing Gum At the Same Time" marathon, and "The Man Who Eats Watches," easily the strangest piece on the album (Frenchman Pete attempting to consume harried waiter Phil's timepiece while visitng a restaurant).
