AllMusic Review by

This sequel to ASV/Living Era's Just a Bit of Fun compilation collects another 22 slices of nostalgic British/American comedy gold from legendary performers like Noël Coward ("Mad Dogs and Englishmen"), Gracie Fields ("What Can You Give a Nudist on His Birthday?"), George Formby ("When I'm Cleaning Windows"), and Laurel & Hardy ("Themselves/The Dance of the Cuckoos"). The tracks range form orchestral to spoken word to skit, resulting in a fine and warm-hearted slice of antique whimsy.
