I went to see Lonnie Donegan at the Empire and was very impressed by the compere's stand-up comedy routines - a very young Des O'Connor. A shame he started singing and wearing pullovers. However, I always enjoyed his routine reciting "The Green Eye of the Little Yellow God" with Jack Douglas supplying the hand/arm movements, it cracked me up every time I saw it.

I remember that sketch with Jack Douglas,top banana.

Is it availalble anywhere ?

I know. And another of the bills calls Ken Platt "Leeds's own" too and he was born in Leigh.

Quite a lot of the famous comedians appeared in pantomimes. I can remember the likes of Norman Evans (over the garden wall), Albert Modley (and his Leeds tram drumkit) Sandy Powell (can you hear me mother?) etc. Happy days!

This is news to me too - still can't see Chico Marx

I like the subtext
Bruce Forsyth - New Style Comedian
Iris Sadley - Saucy but nice
Francois and Zandra - Novelty dancers

The manager's name Leo A Lion on the playbill is amusing. Presumably made up, but you never know! Regular Smiley

I saw Monty Python at the Grand in the mid 70s
there are 10 types of people in the world. Those that understand ternary, those that don't and those that think this a joke about the binary system.

I also saw them. Very funny. I've still got a poster that I bought then. They had a rude closing notice beamed as the audience was moving away at the end, though probably many missed it. Regular Smiley
