Lew Dockstander

Mr. Dockstander has, in my opinion, an exception ally good monologue but it did not go very well this afternoon as the house was made up mostly of women and children. I look for him to go much better at the night performance. I do think that his working the Star Spangled Banner and making the people arise and making a joke of it is particularly bad taste. I might almost call it an insult to our National Anthem. Of course we cut it out here but I am mentioning this to prepare other houses that they may, if they see fit, cut it before he opens. 16 minutes in one.
