Looking for old comedy routine about how the moa bird went extinct
March 15, 2018 11:21 AM   Subscribe

In the 1980s, my local (northeast Ohio) public radio station had a stable of comedy recordings that they'd play on New Year's Eve. One of them was a 5-10 minute absurd stand-up routine about how the moa bird became extinct, probably from the 1960s. I don't know who performed it, but I'd love to find it again.

I think I remember this too, and I want to say I heard it on Weekend Radio with Robert Conrad? Maybe drop a line to Weekend Radio's home station, WCLV, and find out if they have any searchable archives.

Might be way off, but Douglas Adams mentioned the Moa in a talk he gave. It's not stand-up comedy, but he's standing up and quite funny...

I think it's this album by Jim Moran. Timeframe fits.
