Nieman and Harris, a tramp and straight two-man combination, next to closing, stood ‘em on their heads with a line of old-fashioned comedy talk and nonsense. While the stuff was ancient, the method of delivering, was entirely modern. The straight is inclined to talk a bit too loud. Probably he thought it was necessary because of the sixe of the house. The tramp comic, besides owning a real voice, is genuinely funny in a quiet, easy fashion.
