George Marriott Edgar

Marriot Edgar, who died in Battle in 1951, wrote many of the famous comic monologues of the 1930’s and was an important comic scriptwriter for many films. I am trying to write a biography and establish his reputation. Can anyone help with information, anecdote etc? Any help will be most gratefully received

    I’ve also been looking into the life of Marriot Edgar with a view to creating a one man show based around his monologues (which I’ve been performing since I was a kid)
    I’ve no doubt picked up as much as you from the web and biographies of Stanley Holloway, who performed his material.
    Just wondered how far you’d got with the biography.
