This act is closely patterned along the lines of the Gallager and Rolley turn—army captain and blackface private. The locale, however, is in the arctic regions, flying machine, icicles, etc., being painted upon the special set. The comedy rises through a constant play upon words, such as referring to the town of “Ask Me for It,” etc. The comedian has no dialect whatever, despite his darkened features and the straight man does not time his feeding to the fine nicety so essential to this class of comedy. The material they have is superior to its Interpreters.
