Pepito and Juanita at RKO Proctor Theater, Schenectady, NY (1931)

Thursday, March 26, 1931

On the stage, the buoyant humor of Pepito, the Spanish clown, is the outstanding feature of a better than average vaudeville program.  Pepito has many tricks in his bag and all are novel, from his method of ventriloquism to his imitation of a hungry infant and his thoroughly delightful travesty of a concert singer. Assisting him are Juanita*, who presents a difficult routine of contortionism and Bombo, a secondary clown. Juanita is almost as versatile as the gifted Pepito. During the act she plays the accordion and dances.

*Juanita was one of Joanne’s stage names.
