...Randall formerly worked with Emma Carus and is an excellent comedian and nimble stepper."


Pacific Coast Musical Review, Vol. 32 A. Metzger, 1917

act which has proved an immense sensation in New York and the principal cities of the East. Mr. Randall
first attracted attention in the musical production A Broadway Honeymoon with Emma Carue. Subsequently,
she induced him to become her associate in vaudeville, and that engagement became so successful that Mr. Randall

whom Ruth St. Denis considers to be one of the most gifted of her protegees."
