It's hard to believe Disneyland history without Wally Boag, yet when he first came to America's fabled theme park, he only signed a two-week contract when Walt sent him over to casting director, Jack Lavin.
ANAHEIM, Calif.., June 21—'TEMPORARY' JOB SEEMS PERMANENT. Eight years ago comedian Wally Boag was signed to do a two-week stint at the Golden Horseshoe revue in Disneyland. He's still there, 13,000 performances later. Here he is in a typical routine.
Wally Boag ended up having a twenty-seven year stint between Disneyland and Walt Disney World. And for those who were fortunate to catch his act "live," twenty-seven years was not enough. His talent is sorely missed, even today.
