Random Ad - Minstrel Show (1963)

Click to Enlarge

This advert from 1963 is for one of those 'Fun-Packed' entertainments in which white singers and dancers 'black up' and pretend to be those oh so funny black people. The 'Black and White Minstrel Show' was a huge hit on BBC TV from 1958 until 1978. The fact that this show does not use the title of the TV show probably means it was an unofficial rip-off, but they made sure to use the tag line 'They're Black and White'.
