There Is More Light Here

Apparently Richard Wollheim cites Karl Valentin's act from the 1920s in which he performs the search for the dropped coin under the streetlamp, with the punchline, "The light is much better over here." Quote investigator didn't find that one, presumably because one has to remember that Karl Valentin was the clown who performed the bit (I first read about it in Erich Heller, with no attribution of source).
