WELLES, DR. MEL (King Farouk)
[1924 - 2005]

This was a cat with so much wiggage! Dr. Welles, swung with many a book: psychologist, actor, producer, director, writer and teacher. Featured performer in over 60 films and 300 hundred televison shows, he was also renowed for his voiceover work, having midwifed countless foreign films through the painful delivery to the American market. All hail to Prince Welles as he co-authored a number of His Lordship's routines.


 
WHALE, THE

A deep voiced biblical leviathan of gigantic proportions, a creature not particularly fond of smokers. Jonah, emboldened by his intake of an herb the Great Lord hipped him to, was fond of calling The Whale simply: Fish, as in "What is it, Fish?" Get hip to this motherfluker in His Lordship's offering, Jonah and The Whale.
