Bill Lainsbury: Billy Benbo's Best

Comments: Illustrated by Ken de Courcy. "A selection of routines, tricks, wheezes, dodges, gags and games from 'The Belly Benbow All in One Show'". Interesting that Supreme spelled "Benbow" on the cover, while the inside front page clearly spells "Benbo" twice, and the contents also spell "Benbo". Looks like the title is a typo.
