One has only to think of the number of Cockney songs that have made music-hall history to appreciate why Coster comedy finds its place in 'Hail, Variety ! ' The name of one of the greatest music-hall comedians of all times-Albert Chevalier-is for ever associated with the coster's cap and ' pearlies Breezy, doleful, sentimental, or wistful, Cockney songs found their way into every Variety bill in the days when the Old Mo ', Evans's Supper Rooms and the Canterbury were flourishing. And Cockney humour, impudent, witty, and colourful, still rules the halls, whether its exponent be Max Miller , Lily Morris , Charles Austin, or the score of comedians who follow in the line of Chevalier and Gus Elen.
