Phillip Proctor says, "'Peter Bergman and the End of the World' is a piece I was inspired to write after losing my dear friend, collaborator and Firesign partner to leukemia in March. 

"I chose to premiere the story on Comedy-O-Rama because of my admiration for Joe and Lorie's comic consistency over the years and because I know that their audience is the perfect place to perpetuate the memory of Peter's genius and stimulate an online interest in his legacy through Radio Free Oz, The Firesign Theatre and Proctor & Bergman. 

"I know Peter would've loved it…
Thanks, J & L 
~ Philip"
