Nize Baby

Nize Baby

This is an adaptation of a work by comics artist Milt Gross. Nize Baby is a comic celebration of the brilliantly mangled English of immigrants in the Bronx in the 1920s. at the time, the New Republic said that Milt Gross's accents were "all the more hilarious for being phonetically accurate." Gross was extraordinarily popular in his day, and enthusiastically engaged the conventions of low genres like slapstick comedy, vaudeville, comic strips and silent comedies, which perhaps accounts for his slipping from the critical view; his work was, at times, as insanely inventive as James Joyce, as outrageous as Ionesco, but also resolutely populist.
