Which Switch is the Switch, Miss, for Ipswitch?

Today is the birthday of Star of Vaudeville #279: Jack Norworth (for the full skinny on this singer/ songwriter/ accompanist go here). And now, here he is singing that perennial old tongue twisting music hall number: “Which Switch is the Switch, Miss, to Ipswich?”

To find out more about the variety arts past and present, consult No Applause, Just Throw Money: The Book That Made Vaudeville Famous, available at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and wherever nutty books are sold. And don’t miss Chain of Fools: Silent Comedy and Its Legacies from Nickelodeons to Youtube, to be released by Bear Manor Media in 2013.
