Bob and Ray were a comedy duo that spanned five decades.
Bob Elliot and Ray Goulding started out in radio and their style was to satirize the medium they were performing in, like this TV interview, in their hilarious deadpan style.
Slow Talkers of America was released on their live performance albums The Two and Only and A Night of Two Stars. In their Broadway show, The Two and Only, they did a variation on the routine. Bob announced that he was going to tell Ray the
credo of the S….T….O….A.”
The curtain dropped for the 15-minute intermission. When the audience returned, Bob and Ray were sitting in the same places and Bob was saying,
And that about wraps up the credo of the STOA.”
The routine was repurposed for the 2016 Disney animated feature Zootopia, using a sloth as the slow talker.
This is an appearance on the The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson, from the mid-80s.
