AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Comic sketch.

Set on the corner of King and Castlereagh streets, Sydney. Two 'wanna-be' variety performers, Dick Doolittle (a knocker) and Alf Allsay (his pal), discuss the 'passable' vaudeville show they have just seen and the audience's inability to discern between good and bad acts. Monty Mugg (a greenhorn who reckons the show had a 'great bill') enters and Doolittle and Allsay put the hard word on him to get the pony he promised them so they could fix up their act.
