Garrick Theater
Garrick Theater
St. Louis, MO

G-strings were named for the largest string on a violin. Another name for a G-String was “Gadget.”
The stooge comic who takes the falls was known as the “third banana"
The woman delivering lines in the skits was known as the “talking woman”
The skits were called “bits”
To expose any part of the body was called “flashing”
To be told to do the “Boston Version” meant for you to “clean it up”…and to be told to do the “Sunday-school-show” meant the cops and/or censors were in the audience. (I guess that meant you REALLY “cleaned it up” unless you wanted the show to be closed down.)
The strut before the strip was called the “trailer”
To tell a gal she had a “swell set-up” meant you thought she had a good figure
An off-stage crooner, or house-singer, when singing strip numbers would be called a “bust developer”
To conceal lapses during the bits, where someone may have forgotten a line, was called a “cover-up”
When a bit was unfunny, it was often said to “lay eggs”
A provocative strip-teaser was called “the snake type"
