when THE KINGSTON TRIO performed at Montreal'sPlace Des Arts. (1964)
Ronnie did a stand-up gig prior to Nick, Bob + John coming out onto the stage.
Here's one of them:
There's this Dr. Orloff getting ready to perform an operation.
The Doc is getting all prepared and making sure everything is sterile.
He then walks up to his patient, leans over, looking his patient face to
face...and then out of nowhere, Dr. Orloff sneezes full blast...
Here's another Ronnie Schell gem:
Beethoven's wife is complaining to her husband that he never
appreciates her and she accuses him of being neglectful.
Beethoven looks back at her and says...
"That's not true, honey. You do influence me a lot. You are
an inspiration to me and my music."
Beethoven's wife snaps back:
"Me an inspiration? What a crock !!!!(she begins to laugh)....
=> "Ho Ho Ho Ho"
(to the tune of Beethoven's 5th Symphony)
What I'm looking for is the "COMPLETE COLLEGE CONCERT"
album that INCLUDES the entire Ronnie Schell stand-up gig as well as
songs not included on the original LP, such as:
- Tom Dooley
- They Call The Wind Maria
- Scotch & Soda
- The Merry Minuet
- Pullin' Away (Wagoner's Lad)
- When The Saints Go Marching In

Season 2: March/1966
: I listened to the Gilbert G. podcast with Ronnie Schell. It was quite interesting to
: hear the many stories. As for the KT at around 31 minutes he tells the story of his
: introducing the Trio on their 2nd album, It was John's 2nd album not the groups as
: you all well know. He did the intro during the interview and said that the album
: sold millions and was his most successful comedy album. I enjoyed themany stories.
: A good way to kill an hour and 5 minute DL
: --Previous Message--
: Ronnie Schell was just on Gilbert Gottfried's podcast show. He mentioned the
: Trio a couple of times but never told any stories about them. He just gave the
: impression that there were some wild ones he could tell! Here's the link if you want
: to listen. (Lots of salty language so listener beware!) MTABob
