THE NIGHT OWL
HOOTS ...
"Jimmy
Durante and Jack Kofoed
back in 1931 wrote a book
called 'Night Club" pub-
lished by Alfred A. Knopf.
Durante comes alive
through the pages — evok-
ing an aura of nostalgia for
those who remember and
maybe a feeling of admira-
tion for those who don't
"A piano banged by a kid
in a black sweater, its tinny
notes inching throtigh the
voices of singing waiters,
clattering glassware,
shuffling feet. 'Louder, you
bum, or how'll they hear
you?'
"Up town, way up town at
125th Street — a good band
— dancing — a floor show —
drinking — a few loose
ladies — a closed door
speakeasy — big time
gamblers — easy money
chislers — plenty of fun — a
dead-line that shut down
the music only when the sun
came up — that was the
Club Durant.
"A big room hung with
expensive draperies —
crowded tables on a glit-
tering dance floor —
Jimmy Durante — the
same Jimmy who once
sat at the piano in a
Coney Island joint —
singing, clowning, play-
ing the maddest cut-up
the world ever saw.
"Durante went through
all the phases of the night
club racket. He came up
from the joints to the big
time. Broadway made an
idol of him — a Bergerac-
nosed howling idol who was
so funny he was simply ir-
resistible.
"He wasn't good looking
or aristocratic. He was
brought up on the Bowery
and his father owned a
barber shop. But he was
Jimmy Durante which was
quite enough for anybody
who knew Broadway.
"If there was a formula to
his madness, Durante didn't
know what it was. He
wasn't the introspective
sort. He just got that way
and kept it up with varia-
tions. The idea was to be in-
cessantly crazy. He slam-
med a piano, threw hats at
the orchestra and tried a lot
of gags.
"Because of his mad-
ness he became the object
of a cult. His art was dis-
sected in a serious review
in the 'New Republic.'
Critics probed for hidden
meanings in his comedy.
There were no hidden
meanings as far as
Durante was concerned.
"Durante made the song
`Broadway' famous. He :I

called it a fake and phony
but it was his life. Night
clubs meant as much to
Durante as a broker's office
or a surgeon's operating
room. He was at his best
with a full house. But even
on a dull night, he was al-
most equally irresistible.
"Blase, tired-eyed
Broadway lost something
when the irrepressible -
Durante took his last bow. It
has never seen a madcap
just like him and will never
see another.
"People in those days es-
timated the fun they were
having by the noise they
made. A moment's lagging
was fatal — as conspicuous
as a splash of tomato soup
on a dress shirt.
"Durante put a fren-
zied drive into the sec-
onds. When this type of
club came into vogue he
was in his element. Cus-
tomers were better
targets for his gibes and
wisecracks and were in a
better mood for it.
"Durante stormed the
citadels of insanity for
years. Comedy is as closely
allied to insanity as genius
ever was. The Schnoz star-
red in musical comedy and
vaudeville and motion pic-
tures. But those ventures
were merely wanderings
down pleasant bypaths.
Night clubs were by him
and for him.
"No one knew the in-
nards of that game better
than he. He started in a
Coney Island joint and
clowned his way through
the intervening phases till
he captured the tanned
