Frank Cardoe

This is my grandfather Frank Cardoe, a popular Brummie (i.e. Birmingham, UK) comedian from the 1920s to the 60s. He turned down an offer from London Weekend Television in the mid 50s for his own reasons, so remains a completely unknown figure.

This is an excerpt from a performance around that time.

You can read more about him here and here.

Some excellent colour photos of what Birmingham was like then can be found here.
