Lew Fields & Morris Weber
Description: Vaudeville act Weber and Fields. In 1877 Moses Schoenfeld (Lew Fields) and Morris (Joe) Weber were ten-year-old eastern European Jewish immigrant sons living on New York's Lower East Side. Hoping to escape from their lower-class immigrant origins (Joe's father was a Kosher butcher, Lew's ran a sweatshop), they frequented the working-class Bowery beer dives and dime museums, stealing their earliest material from popular "Irish" dialect and blackface minstrel acts.
