The inadvertent granddad of stand-up comedy was Thomas Dartmouth "Daddy" Rice, the man accredited with evolving the troubadour shows.

They regularly opened their projects with topical monologues, portrayed by advertisement libs and examinations about anything from the most recent movies to a missed birthday. Every project had a tendency to be separated into the opening monologue, musical number, trailed by a production or story schedule. A "fight" between Fred Allen and Jack Benny was utilized as a comic material for about 10 years.
