simply the best
5 May 2006 | by (York, England) – See all my reviews

when i saw this show i thought it was a refreshing release from some of the crude and sometimes tasteless programs that we can get nowadays. watching the Morecambe and Wise Show proves that you can be funny without all of the swearing, sexual innuendo's etc. I love this show as it gets back to the kind of traditional comedy that I like. Whilst i don't condemn todays comedy shows, this show made me laugh from start to finish, which is why i class it as a firm favourite. Morecambe and Wise were two absolute comedy legends, the like of which we may never see again. They complement each other perfectly and, in my opinion, have provided the viewing public with some of the most memorable comic sketches ever. Even though, sadly neither of Morecambe nor Wise are still with us, this show preserves their comic magic for generations to come.
