Firesign Theatre

A comedy troupe consisting of Phil Austin, Peter Bergman, David Ossman and Philip Proctor who specialized in a surrealistic humor which appealed to fandom enough that their albums received two Hugo nominations: The 1971 Best Dramatic Presentation Hugo for Don't Crush That Dwarf, Hand Me the Pliers and the 1972 Best Dramatic Presentation Hugo for I Think We're All Bozos on This Bus.

A Minneapolis Slan Shack, the Bozo Bus Building, was named after one album, and Phil Austin and David Ossman both attended Minicon for several years in the early 70s and participated in the program, including the comedic radio plays performed during opening ceremony.
