Newsweek once called the San Francisco comedy troupe Duck's Breath Mystery Theater "an American Monty Python" for its unique brand of sketch comedy, satire and theatrics. The group regularly contributed to NPR's "All Things Considered" during the 1980s. Two of the group's members went on to to create the "misinfotainment" series "Dr. Science," which had a 25-year run on hundreds of NPR stations. We'll talk about Duck's Breath comedic legacy and its upcoming reunion shows.
