Al Jolson was probably the ultimate live performer, the most exciting entertainer ever to walk on a stage. Most reviews of his live performances are full of superlatives. Its a pity only fragments of Al performing live onstage exist today. 

 

In this section of the site you see the progression of Al's career from Rich and Hoppe's Big Company to the final shows for the troops in Korea. I haven't detailed every performance but just covered the acts and shows so you can see what Al was performing in at specific times.
