Comedian Billy Merson performs comic songs - 'Keep Off The Grass' and 'My Mother's Birthday'.
Billy Merson - vaudeville comedian - tries his hands at crooning.
Pathe Studios, London.
Various shots Billy standing in middle of big band, conducting. He sings a comic song - 'Keep off the Grass'. The song is about rebelling - about not paying the wireless license, ignoring 'keep off the grass' signs and breaking into the BBC to shout rude words down the microphone!
He then croons a sentimental song - 'My Mother's Birthday'. He tries to be serious but the flutist and violinist on either side of him keep on distracting him with broken strings and squeaking instruments!
