Episode 150 – David Melville on George Formby


The Independent Shakespeare Company’s own David Melville returns, to again open up our comedy minds to the works of George Formby.  Still a respected name in English comedy, his work never quite traversed the ocean sufficiently, so it’s time for some mind expansion.  Formby’s double-entendre-laden ukulele tunes are played with an unusual skill on an instrument mistakenly seen as simple, especially given its current ubiquity.  Enjoy some fun tunes and, if you’re in LA, go see the Independent Shakespeare Company at Griffith Park this summer.

Host: Jason Klamm
Producer: Mike Worden
