  • Description

    Nosmo King and Hubert.

    M/S as Nosmo walks out onto a stage wearing a Colonel's uniform, his face is blacked up. C/U of his butler Hubert in the stalls asking him how his headache is, he says she is out playing bridge. C/U of him looking quite grotesque.

    He performs a comedy routine about a party in his dressing room between flies and mosquitoes, and about buying poetry. Then he recites a monologue about making the world a better place by having better people. He finishes by saying he has to go because his sister is getting married tomorrow, and she's been working on her torso all week!
