Wilkie Bard.
Bard began performing at age 21, singing and performing comedy in his spare time. He most often appeared with a bald head and wore a black spot on each eyebrow. He also performed as female characters, specifically with his hit song "I Want to Sing in Opera." He had a long career in pantomime, and introduced tongue twisters such as "She sells seashells by the seashore," based on a song he performed in the show "Dick Whittington and His Cat" in Drury Lane in 1908.

Wilkie Bard performed in vaudeville in 1919. His first appearance at the Palace, on October 20, 1919, was not well received, but he reappeared a few days later with slightly altered material and became a hit.
He performed in Australia in 1921
