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 exemplary career as "the funniest man of his time" in terms of 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.
