Harry White

[New acts] Monologist. 14 mins; one. White is a monologist, probably formerly of a team. His methods indicate plenty of experience. The range of his chatter is rather wide, mostly topical, starting with politics and ending up with high prices. White started off with a nut song and followed his monolog with another – “Chili Bean.” He offered a dash of rhymes brought up to date and went into “Songs My Mammy Used to Sing,” delivered partially in falsetto. He earned an encore, yodeling for that. White has a strong single for the three-a-day houses and he can easily deliver in a spot. He was spotted second at the American probably because of another single on the bill.  

Tom Mahoney

Tom Mahoney was the laughing hit of Tuesday evening. It’s a matter of record that he lands every time he plays this house, and he plays it a number of times during the season. His monolog with the bricklayers’ union meeting the main idea is “pie” for the west siders. They love the brogue chatter, though they know it well, Little if any change in his routine, with the “aye” song at the finish tickled the house as usual, and with the last line telling of a place where they had bottled beer, the “aye” was a great shout. No doubt about Mahoney being the American’s favorite monologist.  

Chuck Sale

17 min. in one. Made a big hit this afternoon with his Rube character stuff, all of which got big hands. During the Professor’s recital, the laughter stopped the show and the close after the school director’s final speech was very strong.

W.S. Dickinson

“Rube, Justice of the Peace,” in a very funny monologue that scored very strongly. 13 Min. in One.

Leo Carrillo

Has a lot of new material with just a little of the old. Caught on in great shape, and gave us the best act he has ever done in this house. Finished strong. Olio in one, 19 minutes.

Doc. O’Neil

I was very much surprised at this act. He didn’t reach the audience at all in No. 3 spot, moved up to this position for the night. I am inclined to agree with the audience. Can see very little merit in his work; consider him rather a poor imitation of James Francis Dooley. 13 Min. in One.

Clifford Walker

14 minutes in one. Walker’s act is hardly enough for #2 spot, with the audience coming in. I have no doubt he would go very much better further down on the bill, but unfortunately, owing to the make-up of the show, we are unable to put him down. Did fairly well to-night, but his line of stuff is too quiet for an early spot.

Bert Fitzgibbon

21 min. in one. Advance applause. Held this spot in great shape with a good line of parodies, stories and jokes told in an original manner. The audience was loth to let him go.

Paul Barnes

Monologue. 17 minutes in one. Has a hard time working up to a response from the audience. Has a rather indifferent style, and acceptable that way by the audience. Made up with a couple of good parody songs. His monologue on the umbrella got some laughs. Mr. Barnes needs some new material, and a little ginger in his work. Went fair.

Bud Fisher

17 minutes in one. special drop; This is about the best of the cartoon acts.  Aside from Fisher’s wide reputation, he has a unique setting, has an interesting line of stuff, and holds the audience every minute.
