Pastor, Tony, 1837-1908

Tony Pastor (1837-1908) was an American variety performer, songwriter, and theater owner. Known as the "Father of Vaudeville," he became famous for his comic songs in the 1860s. As an impresario, he developed family-friendly variety shows that served as an alternative to the bawdy and male-oriented Vaudeville performances of the time.
