On this date in 1916, Seal Beach the Lodge Cafe on Main Street ran this ad in the Santa Ana Register.
Adams, Beverly and West were a male comedy and singing trio active in 1916. After some initial success in Chicago, they were booked on a western tour with stops in Portland, Salem, Oakland (where the Oakland Tribune took favorable note of the trio’s “Mr. Snippy’s Nightmare” by calling it “one of the greatest laughing sketches we have ever seen”), San Francisco, and obviously Seal Beach. They appear not to have stayed together past their brief 1916 season in the sun.
And that’s show biz, folks!
