Billy Bennett
The Real Guy - (VAR33)

This CD from Billy Bennett, includes many of his famous nonsense monologues and songs. Originally billed as the Trench Comedian dressed in his khaki uniform, Billy Bennett evolved his act into that of Almost a Gentleman. Billy Bennett wrote his own material, including many parodies of well know poems and Victorian songs. As the theatre critic, James Agate, wrote: "Nobody who ever saw Billy Bennett is likely to forget that rubicund, unaesthetic countenance, that black, plastered quiff, that sergeant major's moustache, that dreadful dinner jacket, that well used and seedy collar, the too short trousers, the hobnailed boots, the continual perspiration which was the outward and visible sign of a mind struggling for expression"
