Bessie McCoy

Bessie McCoy worked with Weber & Fields in their final Music Hall season, but she was a show business veteran and audience favorite whose comic dancing abilities enlivened many shows from vaudeville to revue, comic opera, and the Ziegfeld Follies. She was known as the "Yama Yama Girl" for her rendition of the song.
