Robert Helps, Persona

Bob’s humor is legendary. Anyone who personally knew Robert Helps can testify to his inimitable, infectious sense of humor: his virtuoso deadpan joke-telling, his lofty recitations of the raunchiest limericks, his numerous “press releases” and annotated clippings, his beloved collection of odd-but-true names culled from newspapers and New York businesses, etc. All followed by his signature shrill giggle…

These pages cannot pretend to do any sort of justice to this immortal wit, but duly present some of the terrestrial residua which are hilarious in themselves.
