Avon Comedy Four
Avon Comedy Four was a popular vaudeville quartet specializing in comic sketches and songs. Their material often included parodies of East European immigrants, complete with malaprops and logic verging on non sequitur. Particularly noteworthy were the talents of two members of the ensemble, Joe Smith and Charlie Dale, who were the inspiration for the Neil Simon play "The Sunshine Boys."
