Who is Charlie Higgins?

Charlie Higgins was a popular recording comedian from the early to the mid-1930s who disappeared from the national consciousness once he stopped recording. His first record was recorded in 1930. Little is known about him today on the Internet or in Music Hall Books but it is believed he started his career in the theatre during the 1920s, and died in 1978. Despite lack of modern recognition, he was a very successful recording comedian in the early 1930s and once performed at an All Star Non Stop Variety Show in 1934. In the 1930s Higgins released at least a score of records, mostly on the Broadcast label and the last few on the Rex label. Although his records sold well at the time, some of the originals are now very hard to find but all of his popular songs, such as his most successful "With Me Gloves in me hand and me hat on one side." are on his CD, "All Poshed Up" that was named after his risque 1934 song "All Poshed up with me daises in me hand".

Charlie Higgins was born in Liverpool. In his day he played the part of someone who is down in their luck. He was a master of facial expressions.
