Comedy Perfection
7 April 2009 | by (Nottingham) – See all my reviews

Morecambe And Wise were THE British comedy double act of all time. Their influence on British comedy remains as strong, and their performances will forever be imprinted on the minds of generations of British TV viewers. With their iconic seventies shows that the "A" list celebrities of the time were queuing up to get on (Glenda Jackson, Shirley Bassey, Tom Jones and who can forget Angela Rippon), they achieved what comedians these days seem to shy away from - they produced classic, family friendly shows that were actually funny, inventive and entertaining.

They were the absolute (and without a shadow of a doubt) best comedians of all time.
