Cal Stewart was the early 20th century’s Garrison Keillor. A pioneer in vaudeville, Cal recorded a series of chuckle-filled monologues in which he played “Uncle Josh” Weathersby, a resident of a mythical New England farming town called “Punkin Center.” He befriended both Mark Twain and Will Rogers while on the road performing in circuses and vaudeville halls. Cal died on December 7, 1919.
