The best I have been able to figure out, Max Miller is sort of the British equivalent of say, Shecky Greene, a comedian who achieved some level of success in the past but that younger comedians now ridicule and distance themselves from to show that they are "hipper" and "edgier".

Max did not achieve "some level', he was the absolute No.1 top of the bill in Britain for years. Of course his stuff is dated and unfashionable now, he was at his zenith 70 years ago. However, he is still a household name in Britain. Who is Shecky Greene? I can't think of many comedians of today who have the command of the stage that Max Miller had or who are as progressive and ground-breaking as he was.
