Komedy Kingdom is an early radio comedy series and variety series. First produced in the late 1930s, Komedy Kingdom is reminiscent of early American vaudevillian performance acts.
Komedy Kingdom was originally titled The Blue Monday Jamboree and included comedy sketches, music, drama, and more. The very popular The Blue Monday Jamboree originated from KFRC in San Francisco but when the show broadcast nationally the name was changed to Komedy Kingdom.
Each show had a theme such as royalty, movies, sports, etiquette, and more with music, skits, monologues, and more following the day's theme.
Singer and Comedian Elvia Allman ("Queen Elvia") served as Komedy Kingdom hostess with the mostess. Longtime collaborator and friend of Elvia Allman, Lindsay MacHarrie worked as producer and director of the show.
