• Short Summary

    Comedy dance act The Four Jokers entertain us with a slapstick tap routine.

  • Description

    The Four Jokers. Part of issue WAGGERS AND JOKERS.

    Probably filmed in the Pathe Studio.

    Comedy dance act The Four Jokers come on stage, pulling each other's hair, hitting each other and so on. One comes on wearing a coat with large springs all over it, saying it is his "new spring coat". More fighting and slapstick, then they go into "a number that was so appreciated by the audience last week that they actually gave us the theatre... brick by brick!" - a comedy tap dance routine with pratfalls, switching bowler hats and so on.

    Note: old record lists music as 'Never Say Never Again'. Also mentions 'Freddie the Freshman Feldman' - not sure if this refers to music or one of the Four Jokers!
