<Air Farce: 40 Years of Flying by the Seat of Our Pants>

(November 11, 2011 - Toronto, Ontario) The Air Farce is on the move as co-founder Don Ferguson kicks off a book tour promoting the history of the renowned comedy troupe. The book's full title, Air Farce: 40 Years of Flying by the Seat of Our Pants underlines the enduring popularity of a ragtag collection of funny people who started on small stages in Montreal and Toronto then made it to radio and then spent the last 15 years starring in their own hit television series.



With diehard fans numbering in the millions, the Royal Canadian Air Farce exemplifies brilliant comedic mayhem. Written by founding members Roger Abbott and Don Ferguson, this candid memoir, full of anecdotes, photographs, scripts, and other memorabilia from the authors' private collection describes every aspect of their hard-scrabble <Air Farce: 40 Years of Flying by the Seat of Our Pants>early life in 1970 as an onstage comedy troupe, their historic run on radio, and their spectacular success on prime-time television.

With contributions from many of their longtime friends and collaborators, including Dave Broadfoot (whose "When I regained consciousness" tagline is now part of the Canadian vernacular), and the irrepressive Luba Goy, Air Farce takes readers behind the scenes, and onstage, into the day-to-day creative vortex of one of the most popular comedy shows in the history of Canadian television.

It's an unprecedented look into the intimate workings of Canada's legendary comedy troupe as the authors share the highlights, lowlights, successes, and tragedies that resulted from their Air Farce collaboration. And now Don Ferguson has hit the road, or taken to the air, and fans have a chance to meet him and say hello.
