Sybil's "Aren't People Funny?"...episode #212 : Myron Karblonsky.....

Sybil's "Aren't People Funny?"...... episode #212 : Myron Karblonsky had always been a fabulously entertaining person, even as an infant! Musical, with nearly perfect pitch, he quickly surprised his parents by picking up the piano at 3 years of age singing along with his talented relatives and neighbors in the Lower East Side neighborhoods around Rivington, Mott, and Hester Streets in NYC. By the time he was six, he had already become a featured performer in the Yiddish Theatres and music halls. He could tap dance, play the ukulele and piano, juggle, do acrobatics, and had learned how to do elaborate tricks with ventriloquism. His voice finally changed at 15, and he came upon the great gimmick that made him a major star in Vaudeville, landing him onstage as one of Florenz Ziegfeld's biggest draws. He created an act where he and his dummy were from different social classes!!... a source of great humor and satire for the audience's entertainment! ...and he still managed to honor his father and grandfather before him! He performed onstage as a kosher deli owner dressed in his Papa's butcher's apron! ...and his dummy was named Lord Sneedleton, a rich customer from 5th Avenue!!! For years, audience members couldn't get over how ridiculously funny Lord Sneedleton was, or how "lifelike"!! Myron Karblonsky retired at 67 years of age and moved to Boca Raton with his lovely wife Molly (formerly Melinda Shlemeister of the Shlemeister's Mahtzo Maker Company) They had no children, but kept Lord Sneedleton in a glass case in his original tuxedo with mothballs in the pockets... and the key to his old trunk on a silver chain around his neck...
