Podcast: Coyle & Sharpe, Ep. 10: Record Your Stomach

| 0 comments


In the early 1960s, James P. Coyle and Mal Sharpe roamed the streets of San Francisco, microphone in hand, roping strangers into bizarre schemes and surreal stunts. Today, their humor is a cultural touchstone for artists as varied as Henry Rollins and The Upright Citizens Brigade.

These recordings are from the Sharpe family archive, which is tended by Mal's daughter, Jennifer Sharpe. You can learn more about Coyle & Sharpe on their website or on MySpace. Their recent box set is These 2 Men Are Imposters.

This week, Coyle & Sharpe attempt to record the inside of a man's stomach.

Paul Reubens (aka Pee-Wee Herman) appeared several times on The Gong Show, including this bizarre little act. I honestly have no idea what this is.
