Billy Bennett (1887-1942) was a British comedian who specialised in comic monologues. He was born into the music hall industry and, after a decorated spell in the Army during the First World War, he began his own successful stage career in 1919. Often billed as Almost a Gentleman, he shot to fame at the 1926 Royal Command Performance (now the Royal Variety Shows), and remained a popular public figure for over a decade.

The First Budget Of Burlesque Monologues is the first volume of the collected monologues that were written, performed, and broadcast by Billy Bennett during the 1920s and 1930s.
