William Claude Dukenfield (1880 -1946), known as W. C. Fields, is an American juggler and comedian performing at the Bradley Theatre in Season 7.

History

W. C. Fields' recognizable trademarks were his raspy drawl and grandiloquent vocabulary. His comic persona was a misanthropic and hard-drinking egotist, who remained a sympathetic character despite his snarling contempt for dogs and children. In 1905 Fields made his Broadway debut in a musical comedy, The Ham Tree. Fields starred in the Follies from 1916 to 1922. His stage costume from 1915 onwards featured a top hat, cut-away coat and collar, and a cane—remarkably similar to the comic strip character Ally Sloper, who may in turn have been inspired by Dickens' Mr Micawber, whom Fields later played on film. Fields appeared in thirteen feature films for Paramount Pictures.
