Star Item
  • Description

    Full title reads: "Now Pathetone has pleasure in presenting Fred Duprez. The well-known star of screen, stage and radio".

    Pathe Studios, London.

    American comedian does stand up comedy routine. Duprez, wears tailcoat with carnation in lapel and smokes a big cigar. He is on stage set that vaguely resembles a grand looking living room. He tells a long, comic, monologue about a wedding reception with classic gags such as, 'they called it college pudding - it was an education to me'. Other jokes are about fat women falling over etc. Not very funny.

    Note: another Pathetone story from a different issue starts at 01:27:13. It is another, identical version of story - TEDDY BROWN from PT 330 on Pathe Master tape *PM1136*. See separate record for details.
