I'm looking for a short story/essay written by an Irish author that involves stuttering.

Last night, a friend recalled "the funniest story he's ever read," but sadly could not remember author or title. He read it in an anthology of British humor many years ago. Here's what we know: It was probably written between 1920-1940, but that's not certain. It involves a reporter who is a stutterer assigned to interview a subject who also stutters. It may or may not be a true story. It's possible that it was written by John Montague, who is the only Irish writer I could find who is a known stutterer. Does this sound familiar to anyone, and if so where I might read the essay?
