Thursday, December 1, 6:30pm: “W.C. Fields in Vaudeville”
Tonight! Trav S.D. talks about the great comedian’s early years in show business as a juggler in vaudeville and a revue comedian, and the many ways those experiences influenced his later motion pictures. The talk will be illustrated and will draw from the author’s research on the comedian for his blog Travalanche (travsd.wordpress.com) and his popular book No Applause, Just Throw Money: The Book That Made Vaudeville Famous.
At the Mid-Manhattan Branch of NY Public Library, 455 Fifth Ave, Sixth Floor. FREE
