9,5 x 6,6 inches, vertical center-fold.

The Autograph comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.

Karl Farkas (1893 - 1971) was an Austrian actor and cabaret performer.

Since 1921 Farkas worked in Wien as a 'Blitzdichter' (nickname: the Tick), and performed together with Fritz Gruenbaum in a 'Doppelconference', a specialized art-form which was created in Budapest.

.In 1938 he was forced to become a refugee, going first to Brno, then Paris and ending up in New York. There he performed for other exiles.

In 1946, he returned to Vienna, and from 1950 on, he performed at the Simpl again, now as its director, a role in which he remained until his death.

From 1957 onward, he appeared on a regular basis in broadcasting and later on the Austrian TV channel, ORF. Very popular were his Balances, e.g. balance of the year, balance of the month, etc.
