Great English music hall star comedian, billed as “The Prime Minister of Mirth”.

Robey, famous for his robust humour, bowler hat, long black collarless frockcoat, hooked stick and thickly painted eyebrows, later made a name for himself as a Shakespearean actor, appearing to great effect as Sir John Falstaff in Henry V (1944).

This is a fine Gallery First Nighters" Club Dinner Menu in honour of George Robey at the Criterion Restaurant in London on November 24th  1935.  The menu (4 pages of sepia card, approximately 7.5" x 5.5") has a good George Robey image on its cover, with a fine signature in black fountain pen ink. A little dusty but in very good overall condition. Unusual.
