The Firesign Theatre Bio

The Firesign Theatre is an American comedy troupe consisting of Phil Austin, Peter Bergman, David Ossman and Philip Proctor.

The troupe began as live radio performers in Los Angeles on radio stations KPPC-FM and KPFK during the mid-1960s.

The group's name is an astrological reference: The membership comprises all three "fire signs," born under Aries (Austin), Leo (Proctor), and two under Sagittarius (Bergman and Ossman). It is also a parody of Fireside Theatre, an early television series that ran on NBC from 1949 to 1955, followed by Jane Wyman Presents the Fireside Theatre (1955–58); it may also be a reference to the "Fireside Chat" radio shows of Franklin Delano Roosevelt, a parody of which can be heard in one of the Theatre's Nick Danger adventures.
