Figure JESS PUGH Entertainer JESS PUGH THIS circular is for those who are looking for an entertainer who can thoroughly entertain. To them Jess Pugh will make an outstanding appeal. Fourteen years' professional experience has given to his work variety and finish that few entertainers possess in such ample proportion. A master of dialects, his programs of dramatic sketches, character delineations, stories and stunts will give you a treat that you'll never forget—and you won't want to forget. He'll make you laugh till you wish you could cry for a change, and then, with a touch of pathos, he'll give you your wish. Long or short programs will be rendered, as committees request. Character and straight songs included, if accompanist is desired. Jess Pugh's programs are especially effective for club and banquet engagements. Mr. Pugh is an honorary member of the Rotary and Kiwanis clubs. Address 6035 KIMBARK AVE., CHICAGO Telephone Dorchester 4792 ENTERTAINER WHAT THEY SAY ABOUT JESS PUGH He is the most original comedian now before the public. Pugh did not get a laugh a minute but he got one continuous roar that lasted for two minutes after he had finished.— Fred High, in The Billboard. We have had before us such speakers as Dr. Royal S. Copeland; Federal Judge Mayer; Capt. Roberts, U. S. N.; Major Harvey, U. S. A.; also Major Rice, and can say unhesitatingly that, in his line, Mr. Pugh walks abreast of them. —President Masonic Club, Haverstraw, N. Y. Pugh was good. A constant fire of wit and humor interspersed with just enough seriousness to halance things.— Journal-Gazette, Ft. Wayne, Ind. Jess Pugh is dynamic and refreshing. He is an inspiration and a genuine delight.— Times-Union, Jacksonville, Fla. Pugh is a fun-maker of the first water.— Observer, Charlotte, N. C. At least fifty members expressed their pleasure of the evening's program to me. —H. C. Babcock, Knickerbocker Field Club, Brooklyn, N. Y. Pugh's program was snappy, clean, humorous—the best we have had. —Chamber of Commerce, Glens Falls, N. Y. Jess Pugh is a guarantee against the blues.— Daily Record, Roswell, N. Mex. While he is a spontaneous fun-maker, he is at the same time a capable interpreter of the best in literature.— Capital News, Lansing, Mich.
