Mantan Moreland & Livingood - That Ain't My Finger 1971

On: Friday, July 29, 2016

Mantan Moreland
aka  Mantan E Moreland

aka Manton Moreland
aka Moreland
Sep 03 1902 - Sep 28 1973 age 71

Roosevelt Livingood
Birth Name 
Birth Place

This famed 1930s and 40s actor and comedian from Louisiana has a weathered voice, a raunchy sense of humor, and an impeccable delivery that combine to put an audience in stitches. In this collection of live, vintage (though surprisingly clear) comedy recordings, Moreland executes his most famous bits including "French Girl" (the punchline of which Beastie Boys fans might recognize from the album Ill Communication), "Cuban Ballplayer", and the incomplete sentences sequence "Sick Man" with sidekick Roosevelt Livingood. Though this is comedy from a different generation (Moreland died in 1973), if the African-American entertainer had been born in a later, less discriminatory time, he probably would have gotten prime billing in Hollywood rather than just supporting actor credits.
