Show Review from the Birmingham Owl:

Mr. Edwards' smile this week is well deserved'. The novel turn is Johnny Trundley 'the redoubtable five-years-old-eleven-stone-four fat boy of Peckham'. He sits on the stage to be gazed at. Of the other acts, Tschernoff's performing dogs, ponies and pigeons are the most remarkable, and are loudly applauded.
