Funny men Joe Bev and Bob Greenberg will help celebrate the 90th birthday of the Lafayette with their live rendition of classic comedy skit Who's On First? made famous by Abbott and Costello, before the 3D showing of the iconic MGM film.

"We'll be in 3D too!" jokes Greenberg, who first teamed with Bev a mere two years for the Vaudeville in the Catskills live stage show. Since then, the comic duo have won the annual Coney Island Talent Shows, the 2012 New York State TANYS Award, and are currently touring throughout New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania.

"We plan on conquering Connecticut next," enthuses Bev, who notes an obscure connection between Abbott and Costello and The Wizard of Oz: "In the movie, Bert Lahr as the Cowardly Lion does a joke that ends with 'Talk me out of it'. This joke was used a number of times by Lou Costello in movies, on TV and radio. It's a joke that goes back to minstrel shows, Burlesque and Vaudeville.

Bud and Lou also worked with Judy Garland on stage and radio.

ABBOTT & COSTELLO
DOING :WHO"S ON FIRST?"
From the film The Naughty Nineties (1945)
"Who's on First?" is descended from turn-of-the-century burlesque sketches that used plays on words and names. Examples are "The Baker Scene" (the shop is located on Watt Street) and "Who Dyed" (the owner is named Who). In the 1930 movie Cracked Nuts, comedians Bert Wheeler and Robert Woolsey examine a map of a mythical kingdom with dialogue like this: "What is next to Which." "What is the name of the town next to Which?" "Yes." In English variety halls (Britain's equivalent of vaudeville theatres), comedian Will Hay performed a routine in the early 1930s (and possibly earlier) as a schoolmaster interviewing a schoolboy named Howe who came from Ware but now lives in Wye. By the early 1930s, a "Baseball Routine" had become a standard bit for burlesque comics across the United States. Abbott's wife recalled Bud performing the routine with another comedian before teaming with Costello.

Conclusion

https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/id723057551


'In The Laugh Makers, Bob Mills takes us on a delightful, side-splitting journey back to the slapstick sketch comedy of television's golden age -- a long-ago era of variety, song-and-dance, brilliant patter, and a seemingly endless parade of laughs -- sprung from the genius of 'gag men,' that talented group of wit-blessed wordsmiths to whom the book pays well-deserved homage. The Laugh Makers is a priceless collection of heretofore unpublished recollections revealing untold secrets and goings-on behind the scenes on the Bob Hope Show from Stockholm to Bora Bora, London to Peking."--Gary Owens, Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In
and
Sgt. Preston of the Yukon - "A Call From the Storm" by Jim Nixon, conclusion.
Fully produced with authentic sound effects and music and performed by Joe Bevilacqua. Sgt. Preston and his dog King must help a boy find his father who is lost in the Klondike.
