The next issue of The Lost Laugh e-zine is nearing completion! Featuring in depth articles about vintage comedy with previously unpublished research and photos, it is set to include the following:

Snub Pollard, a career overview and a focus on the Laurel & Hardy-style films he made with Marvin Loback.

The second part of our article on Walter Forde, detailing his silent comedy features and career in the sound era, and including a reproduced vintage autobiographical piece by Forde.

The forgotten career of wonderful silent comedienne Wanda Wiley

An exclusive article on newly rediscovered Lloyd Hamilton footage by film historian David Wyatt!

Lupino Lane – details on the new BluRay/DVD set, and his fascinating book “How to Become a Comedian”
