Old Batchelor benefit performance for Joe Miller
The Old Batchelor, benefit performance for Joe Miller at the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane, London. Joseph Miller (1684-1738) was an English actor who first played Sir Joseph Whittol in William Congreve's Old Batchelor in 1717. Tickets for this performance carried William Hogarth's engraving showing the scene where Whittol's friend Captain Bluffe is kicked by Sharper whilst his friend Bellmour tries to pull him away. This same design was used for Joe Miller's benefit performance on 13 April 1738 -- his final performance, a few months before his death.
