Fred Evans (1889 – 1951) was a British music hall and silent film comedian, who became famous around the time of the First World War for portraying his character Pimple in more than 200 short movies. He was described as "second only in popularity to Chaplin in Britain at the height of his career," and as displaying "a proto-Pythonesque humour of the absurd." Critic Barry Anthony wrote that "in many ways the topical skits of Pimple have more in common with The Crazy Gang, Benny Hill, the Goons, Monty Python or topical sketch shows like French and Saunders and The Fast Show than with the classic Hollywood silent comedies."
Neville Kennard (1900 - 30 December 1963) was a twentieth century variety entertainer from England, most active in the 1920s, 1930s and 1940s. He was a prolific writer of sketches and was one of the most famous names associated with the concert party form of entertainment.
