I remember the classical music comedian, Anna Russell, who was the toast of the opera scene in Australia as a young woman early in the 20th. She got a scholarship to the Royal Opera in London. When she arrived (by boat, of course) she found out what real singing was, concluded that she would never get beyond ‘third valkyrie on the left’, went into comedy.
