Best known for her role as cantankerous Aunt Esther on the sitcom classic Sanford and Son, comedienne LaWanda Page was born in Cleveland, OH, in 1920. After beginning a professional dancing career at age 15, she later relocated to St. Louis, working as a waitress at Ned Love's Tavern; in time she began stripping, incorporating elements of circus sideshow fire-swallowing into her act and earning the title "The Bronze Goddess of Fire." While in St. Louis, Page also met local comedian Redd Foxx, with whom she toured the so-called "chitlin circuit" of black-owned nightspots.
She settled in Los Angeles in 1955 and began performing standup at the local Brass Rail club; eventually Page joined the comedy team of Skillet, Leroy & Co., and while appearing at the L.A. club the Persian Room, was discovered by producers for the upcoming NBC sitcom Sanford and Son, a vehicle for her old friend and collaborator Foxx. The series premiered in 1972 and went on to become one of the biggest hits of its era; after Sanford and Son went off the air in 1977, Page co-starred in the short-lived Detective School, followed by guest shots in a variety of television projects as well as a number of film cameos. Her standup recordings include Mutha Is Half a Word and Watch It, Sucker. ~ Jason Ankeny, RoviSource:

Pipe Layin' Dan is the fourth solo release (and fifth album overall) by American comedienne and actress LaWanda Page, released under the one-name title of LaWanda, released on Laff Records in 1973.
The album, and previous other recordings, were recorded in the years before LaWanda found mainstream success as Fred G. Sanford's (Redd Foxx) nemesis, "Aunt Esther", in the acclaimed sitcom, Sanford and Son, and featured a more raunchy and graphic LaWanda than fans of the sitcom were used to.
After her rise to fame, Laff Records released the recordings, with at least one album, Watch It, Sucka!, reaching gold status. This album includes the comic's "toasts" to Buccaneer and Hitler and the most famous bit being her raunchy fairy tale of "Pipe Layin' Dan" describing a woman named "Fat, Funky Susie Ann", who hadn't had sex because of her homely features, while describing "Pipe Layin' Dan" as someone who "made a dying woman live" and even "made a solid brick wall cum". She also parodies the classics, "It Had To Be You" and "Home on the Range" with raunchy lyrics.
This was LaWanda's last album until her 1979 release, Sane Advice. Source: Wikipedia
