Here's today's record for dec 20, two good fun songs! Tommy Handley was most famous for being the star of ITMA in the second world war on the bbc, but was famous long before that! here are two sides from I think 1928.

Now then, I do like Tommy and ITMA which I have possibly the best collection of off air recordings there is :d
but, it must be said, more for historical than comedic value

Nothing dates like some comedy - think of Steptoe & Son - still as funny as they ever were BUT that was the BEST of writing & performing a lot that came before and after was lazy and poorly written with the few good jokes very few & far between

I know of several people who MUST have everything Tommy Handley ever recorded but i do wonder if they , like The Billy Williams' "Completeists" really know comedy when they hear it ?
