Traumafessions :: Reader Ben S. on the Nairobi Trio

July 6th, 2008 by aunt john · 2 Comments

When I was very young my dad called us all to the TV to watch an old rerun of THE ERNIE KOVACS SHOW, which featured the Nairobi Trio – three men with ape masks and long-haired wigs, dressed in winter coats and derbies. They sat very stiffly and did a strange little musical routine. Dad laughed. They terrified me to my very core.

…and, so, my parents laughed and laughed at that skit! I, on the other hand, had a very difficult time sleeping that night.

It’s PLANET OF THE APES meets BLUE MAN GROUP!

Dude loses part of his banana halfway through the skit….I wonder if that was SUPPOSED to happen.
