The Duncan Sisters: Vaudevilles #1 Female Comedy Duo by David Soren

There had been other comedic sister acts in vaudeville that preceded them, such as The Watson Sisters, but none were as clever and funny as the Duncan Sisters and the University of Arizona has a large collection of sheet music featuring the Duncans. Enormously popular in the 1920s, they have failed to transfer their humor into later eras in a major way due to their owing much of their fame to blackface comedy, and as such they have suffered a reverse discrimination which has impaired appreciation of their diverse talents.
