VOL 2, NO. 17 'Just for Laughsp' USO"-Camp Show i Here on July 9 USO-Camp Shows will present their rollicking revue, "Just for Laughs," at Rec. Hall No. 1 on July 9th at 8 p. JI/I. Peopled by a group of young ut veteran supper club and vaudeville stars, it is a counterpart 1 of the screamingly fur.ny zapoppin," which broke all records during its exceptional run I on Broadway and the road. The versatile comedian, Bobby Pincus, is the featured player. Bobby has been a headliner at Leon & Eddie's and the Hurricane in New York, the Palladium; London, and has also played at: the Montmartre Cafe in Paris. Master of ceremonies and straight man of the show is Jack JI/Iunnwho has played similar roles opposite Phil Silvers, Joey 1 Fave and Ben Blue. There are pretty girls with the fast-tapping dancer, Ruth Foster; attractive June Lloyd, acrobatic dancer. and Ginger Dulo, charming chanteuse, who also work in the comedy sketches. Nelson & Marsh, dance team, offer a series of modern dance routines done with grace and style. Rounding out the show is Jed Dooley, assisted by Audree Ev' ans. Dooley's ''Remarks Befitting the Occasion," a patter of raoid-fire comment on things in general, are delivered while he is performing astounding feats of balance and skill with ropes while riding a unicycle. Jed Dooley and his partner have just concluded a tour of the chief vaudeville theaters in-+c the northeast.
