AbstractHistoryArchive Description

One of George Wallace's more popular sketches, this tale is a variation on the biblical story. '[It] loses some of its appeal when set down on paper', notes Katrina J. Bard, 'but, told in [Wallace's] imitation of a country yokel while sporting a check shirt, a pair of old trousers worn low under his portly stomach and a battered hat, the comedy apparently reasserts itself' (p.74).
