Art Hall and Abe Shaprio

Art Hall and Abe Shaprio were spotted No. 4 switched from opening the second half. The team bills offering “How Does He Stand It?” a querulous reference, presumably, to the resounding facial wallops administered the Jew comic by the straight (a corker by the way) is really the act. His ludicrous cackle, funny slide, “mean” falls, hokum, and last, but not least, his ability to stand the periodical physical punishment, are solely responsible for the comic success of the offering.
