Kee & Tuck. Presenting Barrels of fun & Novelties from Korea [inscribed photographic handbill]
n.p. 1941. Handbill. 8x10 inch sheet of glossy photographic paper, with five images of the duo, inscribed in blue pen at left: "Columbus, Ohio, Oct. 5th 1941. With best wishes to Jack and Marie. Kee and Tuck." Staple holes at corners.
We have not been able to find much information about the traveling performers. A 1940 ad in the Dawson County Advertiser from Georgia refers to them as "sensational Korean barrel jugglers;" their act was noted in the Vaudeville section of Billboard Magazine as performing in Detroit as well. Tuck appears to be of at least partial European ancestry; she delivered patter while Kee performed barrel tricks.
