Comedian Charles Harrison mimes his mother and then his father sewing on a button.
Titles read: "Now Pathetone presents Charles Harrison in - - - [title obscured by timecode on vhs copy] - the well-known comedian of the famous 'Roosters', known to millions."
London (probably Pathe Studio).
C/U of comedian Charles Harrison sitting in a chair in white tie and tails. He turns to camera and tells us he lost a button off his trousers. He says he won't tell us what his mother said while she was sewing it on, but he'll show us how she looked, and he mimes a woman threading a needle and sewing a button, miming her speech as he does so.
He then mimes 'Father' at the same job, trying to sew a button onto the trousers he is wearing, and getting into quite a mess - it's quite funny. At the end he says, exasperated, "Well I'm buttoned!".
