Ala* I sometimes do a lot of tricks

The studld didn't know until two

of making people laugh. Singrre

my time on the stage making
people laugh That's what they
need. They all have some concern
or trouble of their own, and they
are hungry to laugh all the way
down to their show. I try to tee
that they do It.
"If the audience is mostly kids,
I have a scad of jokes that are
sure fire to make kids scream.
And the same for adults. I know
that if a gag does not get a laugh,
it's not me its the audience be
cause I have tried it out hundreds
of times before and it would not
be left in if it wasn't funay. In all
the years I have been facing audi
ences I have to confess that I have
as much fun as they do because
laughter Is catching."
People attending Smiley's per
formance can be assured of seeing
an unusual personality. He is a
master of over 100 musical instru
ments and composer of 300 songs,
among them "Mama Don't Allow
No Music," "Hominy Grits," "Laty

and many others.
