Description

Laugh out loud with some of the best and funniest moments from the finest comedy entertainers of all time. From the gentle, satirical humour of Noel Coward to the outrageous antics of Spike Jones, the wide, diverse world of comedy is yours to explore on this truly hilarious and side-splitting collection.

Drawing on the funny, the amusing and the downright laughable this collection brings the great entertainers from 1926 to 1958 back to life. Each one of these tracks comes from an age when humour had to find expression without vulgarity: indeed, in that sense alone 'The Golden Age of Comedy' offers a refreshing change and more than an appreciative glance back to the good old days of genuine comic genius and talent! Featuring a roll call of comedy greats, including: Stanley Holloway, Flanders & Swann, Max Miller, Peter Sellers, Laurel and Hardy, George Formby, Stan Freberg, Spike Jones, Gerard Hoffnung, Tom Lehrer, The Goons, Phil Harris, Joyce Grenfell, Norman Wisdom, Danny Kaye, Jimmy Durante, Eddie Cantor, Groucho Marx and more.
