Joshua Whitcomb

While this famous old actor (Denman Thompson) and his famous sketch are not new to vaudeville, it has been twenty-five years since the original. His return to Keith's was a debut to the present day variety generation where he indulges in the less fatiguing efforts of the playlet.
Two big audiences Monday could be divided into the young who had the novelty of seeing Mr. Thompson in the old sketch, and the elders who renewed their youth in seeing him in the condensed part which made him famous. The audience responded warmly to the veteran actor and applauded several minutes.
Throughout Mr. Thompson acted with the same address and fitness as ever.
