9780091894559: Morecambe & Wise: Their Funniest Jokes, One-Liners and Sketches (Comedy Classics)

Morecambe and Wise, comedy legends in Britain, charmed a nation for decades. Here, collected together for the first time is a celebration of their finest repartee—the banter between Eric and Little Ern, lines from those horrendous plays that Ernie wrote, the wonderful sketches and jokes penned by the likes of Eddie Braben and Fred Metcalfe, and the unforgettable celebrity encounters with such names as Glenda Jackson, Andre Previn and, of course, Des O'Connor.

About the Author:

Ernie Wise: real name Lloyd Buttocks. Educated at Milverton Street School where he learned to read French and many other words. It was there he first showed his propensity and had to stand behind the blackboard for two hours. In 1945 he went to Hollywood and starred in many jungle films playing the part of Tarzan's left leg. Eric Morecambe: took his stage name from his home town of Eric in Lancashire. With the outbreak of World War Two he served with great distinction behind the bacon counter at the co-op disguised as a middle-aged spinster. Married with 14 children and a habit of leaning heavily against the side-board and gasping for breath.
