Nichols Tour

Yesterday, it was announced that Mike Nichols has died. Most of the obituaries talked about him as a director (starting with "The Graduate"), but I knew him has half of "Nichols and May". In the 1950s and 60s, he and Elaine May used to do two person comedy skits that became very popular in shows and on records.

If you've never heard their skits, I recommend finding them on YouTube. "Mother and Son" is a good place to start.
