LOOK WHOSE HERE ! [Newspaper Article] — Player — 22 December 1911
LOOK WHOSE HERE ! MERRY CHRISTMAS HAPPY ffiW TEAR Many people in this country will be interested to know that Jules Tissot and his charming wife are still alive and playing in vaudeville houses . Many years ago they came to this country and introduced here the living marionettes and a cat duet . In the early eighties they opened at Atlantic City for one week and proved so popular that they remained at one house there for the whole summer . Although the place they worked was a German beer garden , fashionable people flocked there from all parts of the city . After remaining in this country for ten years they went on the other side of the seas and since that time have been playing in Europe . At last accounts they were playing in Birmingham , England , and they are still doing the same old specialty . They have had many imitators but nobody ever sang that cat duet just like the Tissot did .
