Silent comedy by Paul Merton( Book )

13 editions published between 2007 and 2010 in English and held by 256 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On the surface it may seem surprising that a master of verbal humour should also be a devotee of silent comedy, but Paul Merton is passionate about the early days of Hollywood comedy and the comic geniuses who dominated it. His knowledge is awesome - as anyone who watched his BBC 4 series Silent Clowns or attended the events he has staged nationwide will agree. Starting with the very earliest pioneering short films, he traces the evolution of silent comedy through the 1900s and considers the works of the genre's greatest exponents, showing not only how each developed in the course of their career but also the extent to which they influenced each other. At the same time, Paul brings a comedian's insight to bear on the art of making people laugh, and explores just how the great comic ideas, routines, gags and prat-falls worked and evolved

Hancock : a comedy genius( Recording )

4 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This two-hour release traces Hancock's early career, starting as a 17 year old in a Bristol Variety show called A La Carte for the BBC Forces Programme and charts his rise through shows such as Variety bandbox and Happy-go-Lucky (where he first read words written by Galton and Simpson). This is the story of his rise to success told from recordings, scripts and press cuttings. It is the background against which the famous performances stand out, the story of a comic actor who could never believe that he really was one of the greatest of his time
