The Duke Of Paducah - Button Shoes, Belly Laughs and Monkey Business
Here`s an old country comedy LP. The Duke of Paducah (real name Benjamin "Whitey" Ford) was a comedian sort of from the Vaudeville tradition. His style was kind of a rapid fire, one liner act. His favorite subject was his "big fat wife". He was on the Grand Ole Opry for many years. By the time he recorded this LP he was sort of semi-retired I believe. The material on this LP is a little racy, but pretty mild for today`s standards. When this LP came out, a good part of the jokes on it couldn`t have been used on the radio. The material is mostly suggestive type jokes without any real "nastiness" on it, it just creates the images in your imagination. Happy laughing!
