Ukuleles and Other Aspects of a World Class Singing Extravaganza: The Agony of Lower Billing.

23 Mar

“Look at those two geeks on stage. Singin’, talkin’, jokin’ and playin’ the ukulele and the uk-banjo.”

“What’s with Wally throwing his bulk hither and thither and havin’ the chutzpah to say it’s dancing? And callin’ himself –that Big Boy! Making a ton of money out of the fact that every night after the show he stuffs himself fuller than a polka party kielbasa. And for the record he’s not a Big Boy; he’s a Fat Guy!”

“But at least he’s a genuine lardo. That phony smile that Madame Minnie sports is just so much paint.
She’s like a cheap Japanese baby doll. If you ever saw her up close it would make your blood run cold. She’s got the eyes of viper and a heart to match.”

“I’m the only real talent in this trio. Or family for that matter. And I come on for just three minutes during one of their dozens of costume changes. And that’s only because tenors are inthis year.”

“If my voice ever changes it will be good-bye, Bud. They’ll ditch me in Altoona with crocodile tears in their peepers. As I shove off they’ll hand me five bucks, one of Wally’s out-dated suits and a hearty –Don’t forget to drop us a line, Junior!”

… “What? … And give up show business?”
