  • Description

    Probably filmed in the Pathe Studio in London.

    Full titles read: "Now for a chuckle with ROBB WILTON - the celebrated Comedian."

    Several shots of Robb Wilton wearing suit and top-hat performing monologue to music. He covers various topics of conversation, including being subservient to his wife's wishes. He also talks about his adventure when he almost walked in on a young lady at the changing rooms of the local baths. He says, "Of course it's my own fault - I did feel annoyed that I'd knocked !".

    Wilton then talks about his recent walk around the town. A passer by informed him that he had a "face like a Sunday school treat", Wilton says, "I had a book in my pocket on fights, and if I could find it I would have set things to rights. Only he had one fist in my eye...!"
