9780099472568: Goodbye Again: The Definitive Peter Cook and Dudley Moore

Peter Cook and Dudley Moore are the greatest double act that Great Britain has ever produced. This collection of their works is a comprehensive compilation of the finest comedy sketches that Cook and Moore ever wrote together - from the beginning of their partnership, in the groundbreaking stage show, Beyond The Fringe, to the notorious taboo busting Derek and Clive LPs that captured the spirit of punk rock, and inspired the scatological anarchy of Alternative Comedy. Featuring transcripts of one night stands long since almost forgotten, as well as a wealth of virtually unknown material, including previously unpublished scripts for Not Only But Also, Goodbye Again is a revelation, even for Cook and Moore's most informed fans. As well as illuminating their work, this book also promises to shed light on their intimate yet turbulent relationship. It will show how these two diametrically opposed men; tall and athletic Cook from a middle class public boarding school background, and diminutive, club-footed Moore, working class but with an impressive musical talent, came together to develop the closest of partnerships based on an instinctive, virtually intuitive sense of humour. Goodbye Again will chart the extraordinary friendship between the two men and its almost telepathic intensity, which not only bought them together but also pulled them apart time after time, until their eventual reconciliation.

About the Author:

William Cook is the author of six comedy books, including Tragically I Was an Only Twin: The Complete Peter Cook (Arrow), Ha Bloody Ha - Comedians Talking (Fourth Estate) and The Comedy Store - The Club That Changed British Comedy (Little, Brown). He has worked for the BBC and as a journalist for the Guardian, the Mail on Sunday and New Statesman. Peter Cook (1937 - 1995) is one of Britain's most famous and well-respected comedians. Famous for his role as a leading satirist, Cook was a TV chat show host, writer and performer of theatre comedy sketches and one half of the great comedy double act, Pete and Dud, with fellow comedian Dudley Moore. Dudley Moore (1935 - 2002) is not only famous for his hugely successful comedy partnership with Peter Cook. A world-famous comedy actor, he became a Hollywood star and won an Oscar for his role in the hit comedy film Arthur, alongside John Gielgud and Liza Minelli.

Review:

"This volume of Pete and Dud sketches is... invaluable" * The Guardian *
