Headlined by the comic talent of Dave Barry, the packet also contains Judy Scott, upcoming Dec-ca recording star, and the sensational juggling act, The Martin Brothers. Backed by two Joy Healey productions for the Mapes Sky-lets, with singing MC Dick Mer-ritt and the music of Eddie Fitzpatrick and his orchestra the show provides excellent balance and pace for the viewer. Long a favorite in this area Barry draws on a raft of material that includes the ability to deliver a joke with perfect timing, a string of true to life impreshes and some specialty song material that typifies Reno nightlife. One of the best in the business when it comes to ad lib, Barry sets the tempo of his time on stage to suit the mood of the audience. He has fun clowning with a few outsize props such as a gargantuan cigar for his Winston Churchill bit. Judy Scott is a new singer with Dccca records whose personality is as promising as her voice. She brings a fresh, wholesome sytle to the boards and her lyric -delivery is flawless. Newcomer to the nightclub circuit she bids fair to have an extended career in all forms of show biz. The Margin Brothers, Argentine juggling experts, provide some unexpected thrills along with their juggling skill. The pair do the customary juggling bits with added flourish and some clever acrobatics. Their finale is a blazer as they don blindfolds and exchange a number of lighted torches by juggling them all the way across the stage. OS HURRY! L . ) QUALIFYING DRAWINGS DAILY
