How Can You Be in Two Places at Once When You're Not Anywhere at All

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Sean Carruthers
Featuring better production than the debut album, Two Places at Once is a much tighter affair, with much happening throughout. Side one features a number of smaller sketches, with social commentary interwoven with smart television and radio parodies. It's side two, however, that makes this album worth having. The side-long "Further Adventures of Nick Danger" is a nearly perfect parody of a detective radio play, with sharp wordplay and interesting characters. The more fully developed nature of the piece makes the album worth repeated listening, which isn't the case with many other comedy albums released at about the same time.

    Classic Firesign - a subversive must-have!

    The Firesign Theatre's classic LP "How Can You Be In Two Places At Once When You're Not Anywhere At All?" contains perhaps some of their best work. First up is the title track, a stream-of-consciousness acid trip featuring Firesign pitchman Ralph Spoilsport, W.C. Fields, and more double-entendres and 60s pop culture references than you can shake a stick at. The second track is the classic "The Adventures of Nick Danger, Third Eye," a send-up of the hard-boiled detective genre (including a villain/Peter Lorre sound-alike named Rocky Rococo). Younger audiences (myself included) may be puzzled on some of the pop culture references, but that's what the Internet and public libraries are for. A must-have that 40 years on is still funnier than most of what passes for comedy today.
