Comedy and the Gladstone Bag

There was one a comedy duo called ‘Mr Gladstone’s Bag’ who thrilled audiences with their sketches accompanied by loud banging drums and poking fun at the life and times of the people of Victorian England.  During their act they would pass bunting flags through the audience in the pubs and clubs where they worked.  ‘Mr. Gladstone’s Bag’ comprised Mike Clifton and John Watcham whose names are still referred to and their act reminisced about today in Internet forums and entertainment blogs.
