Mr. Newens, while presented as a
monologist, is all that and more. His
entertaining purpose programs are truly
entertainments with great purposes. He
impersonates and yet he does not. He
presents the characters of real men and
women without costumes or make-up
accessories. He is no way mechanically
offensive. Probably the strongest point
in his work is the message that he brings
to his audience in every program. His
entertainment is the sermon without
the preacher, the lecture without the
lecturer, the drama enacted without the
actors and stage properties.
