Coyle & Sharpe

"To look at them, you'd think them two well-educated, well-read, well-spoken, audacious young men. They are. They are also two young men who've rejected a conventional way of life in order to tape absurd, impromptu conversations with the innocent passer-by on a hidden tape recorder. Or, to put it another way (their way), 'We're just Renaissance Men who like to bug people.'"

Coyle & Sharpe made absurd style victimless prank comedy in the 1960s. They were shockingly ahead of their time and their work is still hilarious today.

Check out"The Efficiency Experts" from a television pilot they produced!
