Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 20, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta MM 2. Comedians claim pathos By JERRY BUCK LOS The summer TV season has shown, if nothing else, that Bums and Schreiber are not an ordinary itandup comedy team. In fact, Jack Burns and Av- ary Schreiber are sketch artists vhose range covers from the downright goofy to the bitingly satirical. They never did a standup routine until it was re- quired (or The Burns and Schreiber Comedy hour wen Saturday nights on ABC. "A great part of our act has pathos fat said Burns. "There are some great belly laughs, but there's also an un- derlying feeling of the aware- ness of the passage of time and alienation Many of our sketches that we've worked on the longest, such as the cab driver, most of our set act, is atoneness and an underlying current of sadness. "I think Avery is a master clown and behind almost every clown i s that feeling of sad- ness." Burns, a New Englander, was a marine in the Korean War and was a radio news reporter at one time. While working for a Foil Worth, Tex., station he formed a comedy team with an- other staffer, George Carlin. They broke up when Burns went to Chicago to join the Sec- ond City group. WANTED TO DIRECT Schreiber, a native of Chi- cago, Joined the Goodman Theatre with the aim of becom- ing a director. But be was soon doubling as an actor in both comedy and drama. Later Schreiber also joined Second City and the team of Burns and Schreiber was born. They performed in nightclubs, in concerts and made numerous television appearances. They broke up in 1968 after deciding the act had gone as far as it could. Burns developed into a leading comedy sketch writer for variety shows and Schreiber became an actor and director. A year ago they got together again for a charity decided to give it another try. In their routines, Bums is the pushy, overconfident, suave loudmouth. Schreibar hi the tradition of all comedy teams always puts down the loudmouth. In real life Burns is a shy, retiring introvert and Schreiber is an extrovert.

About seven years ago he was crossing a Los Angeles street when a screen writer he had met maybe once before ran in- to him and asked him if he was an actor. "I told him no, but he said he had just written a script and that I would be perfect for the said McEachin, star of the NBC Television Network's Tenafly segments which wSl premiere in the fall as part of NBC Wednesday Mystery Mov- ie "I took the script and threw it into the back seat of my car and forgot about it. A week later how to act, or find my like it At the time I had.lost my job as a record company executive so I turned to my wife and asked her if I should become a movie actor. She sure, if that's what you want. "It was an awful movie salted I Crossed the Color Line. Anyhow, I showed up on loca- tion for the filming and didn't know the first thing about what I was supposed to do I didn't tnow bow to act, or find my mark; I didn't even know you were supposed to memorize lines MUDDLED "Somehow I muddled through the movie, for which I was paid the grand sum of a week Later I went to a screening of the film and was so unbeliev- ably bad I sneaked out of the screening room before the film was finished "I guess that's what made me become an he smiled "I was so bad I was determ- ined not to quit with that film as my last acting effort. "So I went to an actors' workshop for a white and the rest came naturally." Only one man eligible for trophy When CBC TV covers the Canadian Open Golf Tourna- ment, July 26-29, fairway fans may be treated to a view of the upcoming winner of the Peter Jackson Triple Crown Award. By then the contest, if ft exists at all, will have nar- rowed down to a battle be- tween Johnny Miller and the Richelieu Golf course. Since the award and the 000 that accompanies it are both dependent on winning the U.S., British and Canadian Opens, the chances against it are almost astronomical. In point of fact they are about as astronomical as Mill- er's chances in the U.S. Open after three days of play. Yet, against all the odds, young Johnny shot a final round of 63, for the lowest eighteen hole score in the 73 year history of that event. Obviously, he can't be count- ed out of the British Open, de- spite the rugged opposition he is expected to receive from a field that includes Jack Nick- taus, Lee Trevino, Arnold Palmer, Gary Player, Tom WeSskopf and all the top pro- fessionals hi the world. In any event, whether Miller wins the British crown or not, the CBC cameras will be fol- lowing him (and dozens of others) throughout the four days of the, Canadian Open. Daily reports win be avail- able, following the late news on Thursday and Friday, July 26 and 27; with "live" cover- age slated for Saturday, July 28 and Sunday, July 29. CBC commentators Ernie Afaganis, Don Ohevrier, Steve Armitage, Don Wittman and Ted Reynolds will be on hand along with Canadian analyst George Clifton to bring you the action from Montreal's Riche- lieu Golf Club.
