Can we say a fond farewell to Tommy Smothers who just died at age 86?

I have great memories of the Smothers Brothers and their humor. Remember Tommy’s “Mom always liked you best” line?

Any other thoughts or memories?

They were on TV in my very young years. I remember them vaguely and very fondly.

Very talented. His subversive comedy was needed in the 60’s.

I saw a recent interview with them, they were as delightful as ever, all these years later!
RIP Tommy Smothers, what joy and enlightenment you gave us!

My brother always said that phrase to me. She actually liked him best, though. Thank you Tommy for all the laughs.

One of the greats from my youth. Shame they were censored by CBS.

He also sang backup on John and Yoko’s “Give Peace A Chance”.

Years before the TV show I heard a hilarious recording of the brothers singing “Rock Island Line.” Most saw them as a comedy act who sang folk songs, but I always saw their musical genius
