Al Libby was said to be a "one man show". Thought not the atypical hillbilly music
performer, he was the comedic relief that was so often found with the music era
of that day. He was featured as a comedian, ventriloquist, trombonist
and soft-shoe dancer.
Mr. Libby perhaps had his roots in the old vaudeville circuit as a short bio we have
mentions he had appeared in "many theaters throughout the country". He was said
to have appeared on radio shows, television, night clubs and cowboy jamborees. He
also toured with the USO and entertained the troups during World War II.
