The Frantics

"People talking in movie shows
People smoking in bed
People voting Republican

Give them a boot to the head!"
—"Boot To The Head"
"And another for Jenny and the wimp!"
—"Last Will and Temperament"

Four-man comedy troupe known for a wild but intellectual style highly reminiscent of Monty Python's Flying Circus, but with a uniquely Canadian flavor. Formed in the late 1970s, the group stayed together until the late 1980s, followed by a reunion in 2004. The core members of The Frantics are Paul Chato, Rick Green, Dan Redican and Peter Wildman, but like their spiritual predecessors, two women can be counted among their unofficial membership -- Mag Ruffman and Carolyn Scott.
