It seems that people can’t get enough of Dorothy Custer (born on May 30th 1911). Custer is not just a centenarian, she is also a comedian and a harmonicist.
Although she has worked as an amateur entertainer since 1926 and has been an active harmonica player since 1923 – it’s only recently that her fame has reached unprecedented heights, thanks, in part, to the Internet.
Her appearances on the Jay Leno show have made her an internet legend-in-the-making. She has at least a million views and is being “favourited” all over Facebook. Custer has killer timing and her material is comedy gold. We’ll take her over Betty White any day!
