Description

The Golden Age of Television was blessed with some of the best-loved of comedians, but while Eric 'n' Ernie and Tommy Cooper and Frankie Howerd are still celebrated, some of the greatest like Arthur Haynes and Charlie Drake and Harry Worth languish in the archives. These and other once-celebrated stars, from the rollicking fun of music hall and silent Hollywood days to post-war variety turns and the comedy club boom, at last come under the spotlight of stand-up comedy historian Robert Ross. These are the forgotten heroes of comedy... forgotten no longer.
