The Funniest Man in London

Recommended in The Times Writers' Favourite Books of 2022 by Quentin Letts

"Few will have heard of H.G.Pélissier, but he was the tireless satirical star of British stage comedy in the Edwardian era, a fore-runner of the Goons who drove censors round the bend.  The quirky biography The Funniest Man in London by Anthony Binns is long overdue."
