Stanley Featherstonehaugh Ukridge is an eternal chancer with an eye for a quick buck - preferably without having to do any work himself, and certainly without having put in any of his own capital (for he has none).

Occasionally residing with his novelist Aunt Julia in Wimbledon but often gallivanting off in search of fame and fortune from whichever is his latest wheeze, Ukridge is not one to let any opportunity for financial exploitation pass him by, as his friends know to their frequent financial cost.
