Age and Stage of George L. Fox 1825 to 1877, 1988 Laurence Senelick
The Age and Stage of George L. Fox,1825-1877, 1988 by Laurence Senelick is an illustrated biography of America's most versatile 19th century clown actor. Emphasizing Fox's career as "the funniest man of his time" in America's mid-century society, Senelick shows how Fox's acting reflects those troublesome years.
Starting in Puritanical Boston playing everything from Hamlet to Humpty Dumpty, Fox reached his great success as a comedian, a clown and a man whose remarkable ability was to amuse America in good times and bad.
