Ahoy matey! Yo ho ho and a bottle A History of Comedy in Several Objects! Welcome back for another week of spine-tinglingly good stand-up comedy history, analysed by Doctor Oliver Double and Elspeth Millar in the British Stand-Up Comedy Archive. This time we look at at a range of evocative posters and photos from Captain JJ Waller, alongside an exclusive interview. In the course of doing so, we find out about the links between Covent Garden street theatre and alternative cabaret, and hear just how he managed to carry the weight of two London double decker buses on his chest.
