Duck’s Breath Mystery Theatre is one of the most influential comedy troupes from the 1970s and 1980s. Their comedy has influenced everyone from Matt Groening, creator of ‘The Simpsons’ to Penn Jillette (of Penn & Teller), and from Joel Hodgson (creator of “Mystery Science Theater 3000”) to Caleb Carr (author of “The Alienist”).
One of the longest enduring comedy troupes, Duck’s Breath Mystery Theatre has inspired laughter for more than a quarter of a century. From their early performances (for free beer) before fellow University of Iowa students, the five humorists have gone on to become a staple of National Public Radio’s daily news show, All Things Considered. Their skit, Ask Dr. Science, spawned NPR’s first weekly nationally aired quiz show, Wait, Wait, Don’t Tell Me, hosted by Dan “Dr. Science” Coffey.8:00 pm
