The Queen of the comic monologue in her prime performing her most cherished
sketches and songs Joyce Grenfell was an institution, Queen of the comic
monologue and an acclaimed performer on stage, radio and television. These TV
shows, broadcast in 1964 and 1972, bear witness to her unique talent with a
selection of hilarious songs, monologues and sketches from her one woman show.
Joined as ever by her friend William Blezard on piano, Joyce performs all her well loved and memorable favourites including the inimitable Lumpy Latimer in the Old Girl's School Reunion, Mrs Fanshawe who glides stately as a galleon across the dancefloor, three lady choristers making a joyful noise in the Royal Albert Hall and of course, Young George, whose unspeakable and mysterious activities in The Nursury School produced the now famous catchphrase 'George, don't do that!'
