A hefty new book out today, Forgotten Heroes Of Comedy, is the culmination of a long-term passion project from comedy historian Robert Ross, paying an affectionate tribute to some of the finest, funniest and most fascinating names in the business from both sides of the Atlantic. From Dick Emery to forgotten Stooge Shemp Howard, Hollywood golden girl Thelma Todd to Italian film-maker Mario Zampi. In this exclusive extract about one of the more contemporary names in collection, Ross pays tribute to the late, great Hovis Presley.
