Grand Finale, a documentary covering legendary comedy troupe Ducks Breath Mystery Theater's final performance, is now available on iTunes!
For 40 years Bill Allard, Dan Coffey, Merle Kessler, Leon Martell, and Jim Turner performed together as Ducks Breath Mystery Theater. From their humble start in Iowa City, to their humble decades on the West Coast, the troupe entertained audiences across the country, on radio and television.

Dan Coffey's Dr. Science predicted a nation of climate deniers, and Jim Turner's Randee of the Redwoods would go on to become Generation X's most treasured presidential candidate.
It was always more than a box!
