Julius Tannen

Julius Tannen, the loquacious chatterbox, talked at ‘em, kept ‘em interested and laughing, and could be doing it yet, according to the applause. Whether it was a trick of showmanship of an example of Mr. Tannen’s brilliant wit, an incident occurred Monday which fetched one of the heartiest laughs of the evening. In the midst of his chatter someone sounded an imitation of a feline in the adjacent alley. Then Tannen pulled the nifty “This is a monolog, not a catalog.” They were at his mercy thereafter.
