Hoping someone can help! I remember seeing a video clip of an old time vent performing. At the end of the clip, what everyone thought was a puppet, jumped off the stool and ran off-stage. (Actually a small person or child.)

It wasn't Bergen, who used a stand-in to make Charlie run around, but a stage show from probably late vaudeville, early TV era.

Looking for the clip, the name of the vent and the time frame he did the routine. Would appreciate any help.

Hi Tom,
Sammy King does that bit on one of the HBO Vent specials from the late 70's/early 80's.

The clip I am thinking of is older than 70's/80's. Thanks for bringing it to my attention though.

Tom,

I believe the one you're thinking about is Carl Garray

Could be William Ebbs. He did a vent act in vaudeville employing his brother, who was a little person.

Thanks!
Did some searching, but could find no video on either of these acts. Garray might have been later than the act I was thinking about. The original footage was shot with a movie camera and obviously transferred to video. Still looking for that video!
