No its not Monty Python But a couple of ensembles the first being Sid Milward and his Nitwits, they took over in popularity from Dr Crock and his Crackpots ( Can't find any footage of them sorry) and were classed as the British version of Spike Jones and the City Slicker. A number of the Nitwits set up on their own and became the Nuts and Bolts, as a footnote you will notice the black gentleman in both line ups, he was called Cyril Lagey he had a brother who often graced our tv on a Saturday afternoon and various halls around the country. His name Johnny Kwango professional wrestler
Hope you enjoy them, incidentally the Nuts and Bolts performance is from the Tyne Theatre in Newcastle
