Who is it?

Time and space permitting, I'd like to include a few short bios. on the more popular performers of the day so, again, I may be seeking help from our visitors.

Who is it?

I came across this little piece written by a well know songwriter on the death of a friend and very famous music hall performer.
The name is actually in the text... can you spot it?

His name was famous ev'rywhere
Around the Halls and on the air
Right to the last, he went the length
Regardless of his health and strength
Year in, year out, fifty and more
Comic songs he sang galore
Happy in them all the while
And rendered with a jovial smile
Millions they will miss him now
Parted from us, we all bow
In grief, our heads in memory
Of one we loved, and blessed is he
Nearer to God to R. I. P.
