Vaudephone #11: Hilary Chaplain

And now, here’s a classic routine by the great Hilary Chaplain, the next installment in our Vaudephone series. Hilary is on my very short list of favorite clowns, so I am pleased as punch to be able to share this with you. And the very generous accompanist Ben Model of the Silent Clowns, is just offscreen to the right.

ALSO: please note the swell theme music, by Vince Giordano and the Nighthawks. Don’t miss Vince and his swingin’ band for dinner and dancing every Monday and Tuesday at the Edison Hotel! (Details are here).

Vaudephone is a co-production of Travalanche/ the American Vaudeville Theatre, and
