  1. Dina says:

    Bebette and Art are Fabulous. A great reminder for all of us that listen — to pay a little back for all the hard work KRCC does! : )

  2. Joyce says:

    I love it. I haven’t heard that kind of clown/mime comedy since the days of Ed Sullivan. Very cerebral!

  3. Bocu says:

    Brilliant! Made me smile … and then laugh out loud! That hasn’t happened in a while!

    Thank you KRCC and MAT.
