is that lamp shade looking for a drunk at a party

" . . . the lampshade on the head had become a drunk gag by 1928, when the Baltimore Evening Sun ran a satirical piece called "The Life of the Party":

"It is usually customary for the life of the party about the middle of the evening to put a lampshade on his head and give an impersonation of [Scottish soprano] Mary Garden, after which he tells a joke that is not meant for mixed company . . . ."

When did drunk people start putting lampshades on their heads?
The lampshade part I could do back in the day. The soprano and jokes not so well
