The Fun Factory

by Great Big Owl

Before radio, before television, before movies, there was Music Hall. This was the People’s Entertainment in the golden decade before the Great War.

The Fun Factory is a historical comedy about the history of comedy, in which our hero Arthur Dandoe enters the world of music hall and The Fred Karno Company.

Along the way Arthur encounters intense rivalry (Charlie Chaplin), passionate romance (Tilly Beckett) and great friendship (Stan Laurel).

“Richly enjoyable… packed with intriguing details about a vanished world of entertainment”    THE GUARDIAN
