Wayne & Charlie (The Rapping Dummy)
“Check It Out” (Sugar Hill)

This parody of Kurtis Blow’s “The Breaks” is largely notable for Clifton “Jiggs” Chase and Jigsaw Inc.’s monster boogie-funk groove. Meanwhile, ventriloquist Wayne Garland and his “dummy” Charlie Chucks crack hood jokes about food stamps and Medicaid — a routine refined during performances around New York. In Billboard, Nelson George gave it faint praise, writing “it was a nice attempt at recorded comedy.”
