Pimple's Uncle

This daft comedy stars funny-duo Fred and Joe Evans in a battle to secure an inheritance from an insane uncle.

Comedy 1915 14 mins Silent


This daft comedy pits the popular character Pimple (Fred Evans) against his cousin in a fight to secure an inheritance from an insane uncle (played by Fred's brother Joe). A suspicious letter contains some dubious advice on how Pimple should treat his uncle's insanity - including singing to him and playing practical jokes - with predictable but funny results.

Fred Evans was the nation's favourite comedian until the rise of Chaplin - Fred's childhood friend. Together with his brother Joe, Fred made some 200 comedies before and during WWI, many of which starred the popular Pimple character, which he played himself.
