George Robey
CD The Prime Minister of Mirth (CDR17)

George Robey created many comedy characters, including The Prehistoric Man, The Mayor of Mudcumdyke and The Pro’s Landlady which are all featured on this CD. When not dressed as one of these characters, George Robey often appeared in seedy clerical attire with a shabby flat bowler hat, cane and darkened eyebrows. Although George Robey was accused of being vulgar, he insisted that it was honest vulgarity and always maintained an air of pained and outraged dignity. The CD contains 21 Tracks, a mixture of songs and monologues by George Robey, being recorded between 1902 and 1934.

The Widow of Colonel de Tracey

I shouldn't be a bit surprised
I mean to say
And very nice too
All for the best
I haven't the faintest idea
Such a Look
The first time I've ever done that
