Alcroft was working as a DJ at a Key West radio station in 1979 when cartoonist Mack Dryden left a note for him at his studio. "You must be one of the funniest men in Key West; I'm the other one." The pair got to know one another and began performing as a stand-up act in Key West.
After working less than two years together, the duo was invited to appear on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson. That and other TV appearances led to their own syndicated show Comedy Break in 1985.
Their appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, prompted Leno to call them,"The funniest Duo working today. Jamie continues to perform solo at Corporate Events around the globe.
In addition, Alcroft was named 2009 Westlake Village Citizen of the Year and has been voted one of the "25 Most Influential People" in Ventura County. He has dedicated his life to raising funds for schools and charities, through local businesses partners.
He has teamed up with Phil Proctor of Firesign Theatre fame to write and perform "Boomers on a Bench" which can be seen on YouTube and Facebook weekly.
Much like the rest of us, the BOOMERS have been "Trumped" and can only hope that they will win the popular vote, if only for the feather it might put in their caps. That and a nickel will get you a Snorelax.
BOOMERS ON A BENCH! What'cha ma call it from Firesign Theatre and who's ama googie from Mack and Jamie (I could never remember who was who?) whip the world of News, Comedy, Common and Uncommon Boomer issues into a frenzy once again.
