Pat West was unusual in that although he was big in Vaudeville, he managed to later create quite a niche for himself playing supporting and bit players in Hollywood. And, despite dying at 55, he managed to accumulate 149 credits (according to IMDb)! He was ubiquitous in films and I think his ordinary everyman reason is why.
As for West's singing and joke-telling abilities go, I think he made the smart choice going into films as an actor. In other words, the singing was only okay and the jokes were enough to say 'don't quit your day job'! He's dressed as a sailor and sings and tells jokes on a set made to look like a ship. The results are not terrible but not all that good.
