Here’s a photo of the Nairobi Trio-themed art installation in a window on West Third Street at Main Street in downtown Pomona, discussed in an item in my Friday column. The photo comes from artist A.S. Ashley’s Facebook page devoted to this piece of his, which he says will remain through Dec. 4 “due to popular demand.”
(To quote the old Stan Lee quip, maybe a guy named Joe Popular demanded it.)
What’s the Nairobi Trio? It was an occasional sketch on Ernie Kovacs’ shows and specials of the late 1950s and early 1960s. Naturally, it has its own Wikipedia page. Just as naturally, there are examples on YouTube.
