Vaudeville Humor by Ed Lowry

Book Description

"Vaudeville Humor: The Collected Jokes, Routines, and Skits of Ed Lowry" contains vaudeville jokes, skits, and routines from the first three decades of the twentieth century originally compiled by comedian Ed Lowry (1896-1983). Although occasionally found in bits and pieces in anthologies and in some period dramatic comedies, vaudeville humor has never before been available in one collection - performers rarely if eve kept a record of their jokes and routines. Fortunately Ed Lowry was an inveterate collector. He kept copious notebooks of jokes and routines that he not only commissioned but also stole from other comics, clipped from newspapers, and copied from now defunct popular magazines of the day.
