Ouch! Reports of our death are greatly exaggerated--and downright wrong ("Duck's Breath Will Retire Its Satire," by Lawrence Christon, March 13).
In fact, the article has distressed our friends, scared our creditors and encouraged our parents (it got carried nationally). Not only that, it surprised the heck out of us and the good people at ICM, which recently agreed to represent us as a comedy ensemble.
Point in fact is, we're busy churning out radio shows, prepping for a feature film and television pilot together, performing live several places next month and attending to various collective--and individual--deals, offers and so forth.
We're not only together, but thriving.
We're not in any way "dissolving," but evolving--and maturing--as a comedy unit so we can hopefully work together for another 13 years. Then--with any luck--we'll be right up there with Paul McCartney and Mark Twain in the obituary survivors club.
