Gert and Daisy

Played by Doris and Elsie Waters, the characters of Gert and Daisy were popular with Hippodrome patrons, making a total of 15 appearances between 1933 and 1955. The characters would talk about anything and everything including tales about their fictional husbands Bert and Wally. Reviews described the turn as “the outstanding performance of the evening” and “among the comparatively few real stage comics of our time, who cheer you up by the warmth of human kindness in them… They are, as the phrase goes, a tonic.”
