|They Came to Laugh so Why No One Smiling

W.C. Fields was a comic headliner in the 1930s. He had a resurgence in the late 1960s though dead) thanks to television in the 1950s. Your mother thought his sense of humor too risqué; today's youth finds him too tame. Hank Fincken (author, actor, playwright) will discuss the nature of humor, perform as Fields, and let Fields himself astonish you with one of his greatest scenes. With a little push from your end, we might just encourage Fields to have a second comeback (though still dead).
