Little excuse for the fight with a policeman.
Strong on the comedy. Mr. Barret is identified with Irish dialect roles. The sketch has no structure or story to tell. Fills the required time by dragging out Barrett's specialties. The dialogoue between Mr.Barret and his wife over the "widow's" late husband is the best comedy. The stump speech had no place in the act.
