Watson, Billy


Watson, Billy
(1866-1945)
   "Dutch" comedian Isaac Levie (or Levine) was born in New York where he went on the stage as Billy Watson, a singer and comedian, in 1881. He produced and starred in Krausemeyer 's Alley, a comedy in which he played a Jewish father resistant to his son's desire to marry an Irish girl (a work foreshadowing Anne Nichols's 1922 hit, Abie's Irish Rose). Watson owned and operated his own theatres and produced the popular burlesque tour Billy Watson's Beef Trust, featuring a line of overweight chorus girls.
