The Clown Prince

Found this clip in doing research for a show i'm performing this weekend. George Formby's work has kept generations laughing since the 1930s. He writes the songs he sings, and has a delivery style reminiscent of Pee Wee with a banjo ukelele. Deservedly crowned the "Clown Prince of England".

my only regret is I couldn't find a clip of the Formby song I'm using - "Swimmin with the Women". Maybe our show video will be good enough to post...

Thanks for listening and contributing. For up-to-the-minute thoughts, come on over to I'm @dimbulb52

How fun! I thought his voice would be lower - that was a surprise!

And you lie about up-to-the-minute comments on Twitter. We miss you, Gary. ;(
