Max Wall

Max Wall was a unique British star, a variety act, comedian, dancer, actor, singer. His best known routine was as Professor Wallofski and the 'funny walk' which is said to have influenced John Cleese to write The Ministry Of Silly Walks for Monty Python and is influenced by the routines of music hall giants Wilson, Keppel and Betty.
Whilst he doesn't get a mention in the song Reasons To Be Cheerful, Ian Dury was a big fan and Wall recorded Dury's "England's Glory" which was released as a single.
A Max Wall appearance used to make me smile. Good evening.
So here's a bit of a very young Max, I Took Off my Hat
