Their talk is "scattered" and incoherent. As a last resort they go into a travesty upon melodrama, but do not make their points score.
A much better arrangement would be a consistent line of talk at the beginning and comic songs to close, with a dance by the comedian worked in somewhere. He had a few steps which indicated that he could dance and more should be made of this accomplishment. The pair work rather well at times, and with better material could probably fill in fifteen minutes entertainingly.
