Clark and Duncan

Clark and Duncan put pretty much everything that has been done in vaudeville into a singing and talking sketch, including parodies (all new ones), a semidramatic recitation in Italian dialect (but with a saving comic "snapper" at the finish), comic songs and a travesty on melodrama. The give-and-take of dialog between husband and wife, the latter a very stout woman, made effective entertainment for the Yorkville audience, which is not as keenly discriminating as that of the Colonial, but plainly of the respectable and moderately prosperous class.
