The Fuller Brush Company.

S.B. Fuller was one of the most successful black entrepreneurs of his time. See Alex's article about him over at

"S.B. Fuller: The Forgotten History of a Legendary Black American Entrepreneur."

A propos of door-to-door sales, this fellow looks like he has a bright future. What an amazing sense of humor:

OK, maybe I'm too dense to see what you're doing here, but SB Fuller had nothing to do with the Fuller Brush Company. That was Alfred Fuller.

The sales kid is good and entertaining, though. He will go far. Whether that's as a standup comic I can't say - I'm too old, out of touch, and "White and Nerdy".

Well, shiver my timbers. I didn't know that about Alfred. I will speak to my assistant so that such errors do not ever appear under my name again.

You've got to love that kid. Pure genius and limitless good humor. There was a young black comedian I saw years ago on TV. He had a very similar personality and had a very kindhearted way of looking at race relations. I hope he prospered.
