Notes Do you like telling corny jokes? Did you ever dream of becoming an old-style vaudeville comedian? Track 1 is a comedy routine performed by two comedians. The words are on the album back cover. Track 3 is the exact same comedy routine with space for you to fill in the words of the second comedian. Also on this album are two humorous songs sung by Benny Bell, Baloney and Sweet Violets.
