A life-sized statue depicting Brighton-born comedian Max Miller on stage. Reference is made to Miller’s act through his trademark clothing and hat. Also represented are the ‘blue book’ and ‘white book’ from which he would draw his jokes and stage patter. The statue was modelled in clay and plaster from photographic and video references and cast in bronze using the lost wax method. The statue is mounted on a square plinth with inscriptions.
