Comedy Jewish double-act, Abe and Mawruss, perform sketch - 'Another Misunderstanding'.
Full title reads: "Now Pathetone has pleasure in presenting: the popular radio and variety artists, Abe and Mawruss, in 'Another Misunderstanding'."
Pathe Studio, London.
Double act by two Jewish comedians, Abe and Mawruss, filmed on theatre stage. They perform a sketch - 'Another Misunderstanding'. Basic idea is that Abe keeps on misunderstanding what Mawruss says. Lots of puns and play on words with double meanings (e.g. mine, smelt, scales etc.). Both comics appear to speak with exaggerated Eastern European accents and look like racial stereotypes - could be interpreted as anti-Semitic or could just be music hall style of genuine Yiddish comedians?
