HERBERT LEON COPE Humorist
HERBERT LEON COPE
All run down? That tired feeling all the time? Grouchy? Mind foggy? Pepless?
What you need is Cope! Herbert Leon Cope—the Sunshine of the Lyceum; the funniest man since Bill Nye; the chap who made two million doughboys double up with laughter; the man who radiates optimism and happiness through his Religion of Laughter.
There's only one Cope! Never was any one quite like him—and never will be. He's a real funny man—a genuine Humorist! They are few and far between, folks, so all the more power to Herbert Leon Cope! He will make you smile the widest smile you ever smiled—and he'll make you laugh the longest and loudest laugh you ever laughed! And just about the time you are agreeing with him that after all this isn't such a bad old world, he'll sink in some philosophical observations that will make you think, and cause you to want to really measure up with the requirements of this good old world we're so fortunate to be living in. He's an inspiration for good, is Cope—and if you don't believe it just ask any of some 2,000,000 Yanks who laughed—and cried—with him during the war, and affectionately called him Kill the Blues Cope.
Yes, folks, he's a funny man—the best on the American platform—but his power to do good is his alibi for being a professional humorist. That's Cope's real mission. He is one of the most interesting speakers and interesting characters now before the American public. He reflects the sunshine of life. There's a sermon in his every sentence—yet no one ever suspects him of preaching. He just gets hold of you—that's all. And you'll go back home with a better feeling toward mankind in general.
Subjects: The Religion of Laughter, The Smile That Won't Come Off.
