    Note: Location of the events unknown.

    A gentlemen wearing a comical false moustache introduces the piece.

    One of the O'Gorman brothers walks onto the stage wearing a very smart suit and says "A few funny stories coupled with some card tricks." He is about to launch into his first joke about an "Englishman an Irishman and a Scotsman", when the other brother walks on wearing a striped blazer and silly hat, he proceeds to fall over in a silly way, he gets up and hobbles off stage. He shortly reappears and tells his brother that there is a "lady without" when his brother enquires as to what she is without he replies "I'll go and have a look !" and staggers off stage again.

    Various shots of the brother wearing the suit attempting to tell his joke and being interrupted by his brother, who continually walks on stage and collapses on the floor before standing up and telling a joke. Several more comical scenes between the two brothers.

    Duplicate exists in 'Pictorial Revue' - compare for best quality.
