On the 2nd December 1982 Marty Feldman a true comic genius tragically died. Reading through the Margate Historical Society archive there is a account of him working as a washer-upper in the Galleon Bar , Margate in 1951. From there he worked in a couple of sideshow in the Dreamland Park firstly as a "real" Red Indian, arms folded,buckskin clad with brown make up assisting a "real" red Indian Chief who was dancing bare feet on broken glass. He also assisted illusionist Blondini who performed an escape from a "real" buried coffin, and then went on to run the rifle range at the Lido. He lived in Margate for 18 months.
By 1954 he had teamed up with another comic genius Barry Took to write scripts for television and radio. including the legendry "Round the Horn".
