    Sam Mayo was billed as 'The Immobile One' because, dressed in an old dressing gown, he sang his songs with no sign of emotion.
Sam actually held the record for turn-working. Artistes would appear at several halls each night... usually two or three. But in one week, in January 1905, Sam whizzed round the halls and crammed in an incredible nine turns a night. For good measure he threw in four matinees, making a total of fifty eight (58) performances. - From 'Round The Town' by Tony Barker.
