Corinne and Williams

[New Act] Comedy Sketch, 14 mins; full stage. An old standard sketch formerly titled “A Tip on the Derby.” The story has to do with a middle-aged couple. The husband likes to play the races and is expecting a telegram with the low down about “Mabel B.,” a horse he owns a share in. Wifey is expecting a wire from her brother Pat, who is to call on her. The telegram arrive, each opening the wrong one and the usual complications. It’s a good comedy offering for the smaller houses, the situation appearing new to the present generation of theatregoers, or at least now at the Harlem.
