Quotes

Al ShawSam Lee: [singing] We're a couple of self-made gentlemen, Just to look at us and it shows it. Our pants come from Pantsylvania. Our coats from the coatst of Brazil. We stopped and bought a cane in Canetucky. In Canetucky were the moon shines still. We then got these shoes in Shoecago. A vest in Vest Virginia by the sea. We bought a pair of socks in Sockramento and we had them washed in Washington, DC...

There's No Place Like Dixie. That's Why We're California-Bound
6 December 2016 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

When the Vitaphone Project screened Shaw & Lee's first short, THE BEAU BRUMMELS, everyone in the audience loved them. Now it's about six years later. I still don't know which is which and I still don't care, because they are so good performing their blanked-faced idiocies that I can't stop laughing.

This one came out two years later and there are advances in how they perform. In the first one, they came out on stage and did their act. In this one, they're given a bit of a story as they sneak into a night club and interact -- slightly -- with other people there. They still have that wonderful one-on-one timing of two performers who know how to do what they do together. Enjoy.
