    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (1)

      • In the "Soundstage" (Wolverton and Flam) sketch with Kevin Bacon and Kevin Nealon, Bacon's character is named Flam and he contributes nothing except rhythmic clapping to the songs. A "flam" is one of the 26 basic percussion rudiments, consisting of a slight grace note with one hand followed by a stronger note with the other, and Bacon's clapping in the sketch follows this pattern.
