' * CREDIT LONG DUE" I [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 1 October 1920

* CREDIT LONG DUE I By _ JIMMY LYONS The comedian has been praised by press , public and managers . Probably deservedly so—but how about him who is mainly instrumental in securing the comedian his laughs ? I refer to none other than the Straight Man . How far would the comic get without him ? , If a gag doesn t go over , for some reason or other , who is blamed ? The straight man . The first to be blamed and the last to receive credit . And it s -not easy to be a straight than . One must have a good command of the English language , beside looking the part . There is nothing more repulsive to the ears than to hear an immaculately clad straight man make a grammatical error on the stage . The straight man is not only important in two acts . In burlesque , he is almost as necessary as the comedian ; in musical comedy ( polite burlesque ) the same . In sketches , even in minstrelsey we have- the straight man , and an . important factor he is—the interlocutor Next to doing a single , the...

PLAYING PATERSON [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 1 October 1920

PLAYING PATERSON By FRIAR GEORGE , Everybody likes to play Paterson , if fur no other reason than to meet Billy Walsh , the genial manager of the Keith house , who boasts that Paterson is the city that has attracted him longer than any other place in the United States , so much so , that he has become a permanent resident and the people long ago decided that he had to stay whether he likes it or not—but he likes it . No man is better known among vaudevillians than the popular manager of the Paterson house , and . Monday afternoon , after the first show the actors are out in front swapping stories and holding a sort of impromptu reception with the head of the house . Possibly there is no man in the show business better liked than Billy Walsh and surely no one with a better memory for faces and people . He can tell you who played on the Coast 30 years ago , he remembers when they called vaudeville variety , and any old timer down on his luck who is not able to get back to Broadway and...
