Billy Connery

[New act] Monologist, 12 mins.; one. Billy Connery has stories and songs. A good part of his chatter is located overseas and there are war angles which carry out his mention of having been a soldier. Some of the stories were in Irish brogue, but he showed familiarity with French with a song number of the close which drew him an earned encore. A rhymed yarn recited with muted orchestration was anent the war and the part of the Yanks played. That bit went for a good hand. For pop audiences Connery is amusing. He delivered nicely here.
