Yeah, Butch -- Peanuts Hucko used to do a Louis Armstrong vocal
impersonation, also.

But for a laugh listen to Lenny Bruce's Interviews of Our Times LP.  One of
the tracks, called Father Flotsky's Triumph has the convict shouting
YadaYadaYada, Wahden and the Warden shouts All right, Dutch, enough of those
Louis Armstrong impressions!
