The Smothers Brothers

 The Smothers Brothers are Thomas and Richard, American singers, musicians, and comedians. The brothers' trademark double act was performing folk songs, which usually led to arguments between the siblings. Tommy's signature line was, "Mom always liked you best!" Tommy acted "slow", and Dick, the straight man, acted "superior".

In the 1960s, the brothers frequently appeared on television variety shows and issued several popular record albums of their stage performances. Their own television variety show, The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour, became one of the most controversial American TV programs of the Vietnam War era. Despite popular success, the brothers' penchant for material that was critical of the political mainstream and sympathetic to the emerging counterculture led to their firing by the CBS network in 1969. One show was left unaired.

The brothers continued to work, both independently and as a team, on stage and television, and in films during subsequent decades.
