'The favourite comic dance'. By Mr. Bologna and Grimaldi, in the popular pantomine of Mother Goose. Joseph Grimaldi (18 December 1778 – 31 May 1837) was an English actor, comedian and dancer, who became the most popular English entertainer of the Regency era. John Peter Bologna (1775 –1846), known as Jack Bologna on stage, was an Italian actor and dancer, who spent much time in England popularising the role of Harlequin in Georgian pantomimes and harlequinades in the early part of the 1800s at the Sadler's Wells and Covent Garden Theatres. In 1806, he, along with the famous Clown performer, Joseph Grimaldi, performed in Harlequin and Mother Goose; or, the Golden Egg, Bologna's his biggest success.
