For over 40 years the Eric Morecambe and Ernie Wise epitomised the best of British comedy. Beginning their iconic partnership in 1941, they graced stages all over the UK, and moved from radio to TV screen where they became a staple for family audiences with their famous star-studded Christmas shows garnering viewing figures as high as 23 million. Many of their routines and sketches are now ingrained on the British memory - from dance routines with the likes of Angela Rippon and Shirley Bassey to ironic moments in the "plays what Ernie wrote" that featured the likes of Vanessa Redgrave, Penelope Keith and Peter Cushing and celebrated encoutners with great performers from all corners of the arts, such as Andre Previn. The term "comic genius" can be overused, but never when describing these two. Morecambe & Wise left a legacy that has influenced successive generations from Ben Elton to Miranda Hart and this delightful book brings their story to life through the inclusion of 20 facsimile documents, many of which have never been seen before.
