Bert Henry Vinyl Record Albums

Bert Henry, stand-up comedian, is a man whose albums are difficult to find and whose humor is heard throughout the streets on an almost daily basis. There are no videos on You Tube and the advertisements for his 33 1/3 RPM Long Play Fax Records such as At the Hungry Thigh and In the Raw offer little education in the area of his life or career. During the late 1950’s and early 60’s Henry established a clamoring audience that consisted of the average man and Hollywood entertainers who considered his bits to be wild and bold, which they were for their time: With routines about a cat of nine tails, sexual urges, a horse named My Dick ridden first by Jockey Strap (who falls off My Dick after the horse enters “a very dangerous position”) and then A. Crab (who nobody should “forget to put on their…scratch ticket.”) and (probably most noteably) a parrot who incessantly claims, "I know what you do!" and at the hatching of her eggs, it is discovered that what she does is have sexual intercourse with owls! Henry, boasted by Fax records as a master of “Torrid tid-bits of sexopathic humor!” began his career in show business as a jitter-bug dancer in Cincinnati, Ohio. After earning acclaim for his performances on the USO circuit, Henry encountered an emergency when the record to which he and his wife danced went dead behind the stage wings. Henry stood before an audience of 2,000 in utter silence. He began adlibbing and, to his amazement, held them enthralled. After this, he “stooged” for a Burlesque Comic of Columbo’s in Philadelphia. After the Burlesque comic (kept anonymous even in the very few bios of Henry) became sick, Henry was sent up before the audience as headliner for the evening. Thus began his career as a solo act. Those fortunate enough to own his records might remark on the superb timing of Bert Henry; of the charisma that "street jokers" lack which he brought to the stage and of how kindly he closed all of his shows by saying, "In show business you learn three things: You stand up to be seen, you speak loud to be heard and when you have an audience as nice as this, you sit down to be appreciated." All owners of his records (this owner included) may also find themselves outraged that, while his jokes live on in the voices of con's who steel material for a few jitters from their friends, the man who wrote them himself has faded away.
