Entertainer Celebrates Birthday with Vaudeville Show

By Mark Scott

Buffalo, NY – Buddy Herrick celebrates his 86th birthday on Sunday. As he does every year, he'll be gathering with friends at a local banquet hall to celebrate. What makes this party unique is the vaudeville show that accompanies it.

Buddy is an entertainer who began his career in the waning days of vaudeville. And come Sunday, he and his friends will be singing, dancing, performing magic and more. Last year, WBFO's Mark Scott brought his microphone and tape recorder to the party where he talked with some of the entertainers for this report.
