Gallagher and Shean

Gallagher & Shean was a highly successful double-act on Vaudeville and Broadway in the 1910s and 1920s, consisting of Edward Gallagher (1873 - March 28, 1929) and Al Shean (real name Albert Schoenberg) (May 12, 1868 - August 12, 1949).

Having led separate careers in the Vaudeville tradition, it was when they teamed up that they gained popularity. Most widely-known was their theme song Mister Gallagher and Mister Shean which was a hit at the Ziegfeld Follies in 1922.

Shean was also uncle to the Marx Brothers.
