The Smothers Brothers are an American music-and-comedy team, formed by real-life brothers Tom (or Tommy) (born February 2, 1937) and Dick Smothers (born November 20, 1939). They were both born on Governor's Island in New York Harbor, where their father, a U.S. Army officer, was stationed. Their father died during the Second World War in a Japanese prisoner of war camp, and they were raised by their mother in the Los Angeles area. The brothers attended San Jose State University. After a brief time in a folk group called the Casual Quintet, the Smothers made their debut as a duo in 1959. They were a popular act in clubs and released several successful record albums, the most successful being Live at the Purple Onion, in 1961. The brothers' trademark act was performing folk songs (Tommy on acoustic guitar, Dick on string bass), which usually led to fake arguments between the two siblings. Tommy's signature line was, "Mom always liked you best". Tommy (the elder of the two) acted "slow," and Dick acted "superior". Read more on Last.fm.
