Of the two men, one is a good straight ground tumbler, although he has costumed himself after a fashion that suggests his desire to be a comedian. He makes a good tumbler and had much better work straight, leaving the comedy department to his partner. The latter is stout, even “fat,” and a good deal more comedy capital is to be made out o his physical peculiarities than from the slapstick in which the other insists upon indulging himself.
Notwithstanding his avoirdupois, the comedy member is no mean tumbler. With good direction and thought on their own part the pair could make a much better comedy acrobatic number of their act, although this is not said in disparagement of their present vehicle.
