Show Review from the Birmingham Owl:

The reviewer 'cannot think of a funnier sketch than that of Frank and Jen Latona's 'Musical Slavey' - it is as good as the Musical Tramp'. De Marce's miniature circus is highly appreciated, as are Mdlle Orbasany's cockatoos. The de Courcy Brothers show some amazing feats of strength.
