Storyline

Returns from a party and states that he's still hungry. He eats the cigar he was smoking and then does some shimmying around the room. He then proceeds to light and eat his matches and then the matchbox. After that he begins to tear apart and eat his tuxedo and his flower. He breaks apart his ukulele and eats it. He proclaims that he's still so hungry that he could eat a horse. Written by Michael of lillym_325@yahoo.com

Eat Hearty!
15 March 2003 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

Chaz Chase -- not to be confused with Charley Chase -- eats a variety of interesting items, including a lot of cardboard. Absolutely bizarre: this sort of act, which used to prosper in vaudeville, wound up going into the carnivals after vaudeville died.

Apparently the diet agreed with Mr. Chase, since he was doing the same act thirty years later
