Lizars, Edinburgh (1904) (2 mins)

Mitchell and Kenyon were commissioned to film this unidentified comedian by Lizars' Imperial Bioscope of Edinburgh, presumably to promote a live show (see also Mr Moon). Although the performer's name has not been recorded, he must have been famous enough to be recognisable to the film audience. His comic act here is to enact half of a gossipy phone conversation dressed as a Rajah.
