The FTA Tour

The Fuck the Army Tour. Alan Myerson was an early director of the sketch portion of this traveling revue, which also featured Garry Goodrow, Howard Hesseman, and Peter Boyle. The Committee/Second City folks dropped off as the tour went abroad, but Committee material, such as the famous “Wide World of War” sketch, remained in the show. Pretty great seeing Donald Sutherland doing Committee comedy in this trailer, in addition to comedy genius Paul Mooney. Audiotape that we helped restore last month includes an interview with Myerson in which he discusses this tour at length.
