Description
A history of British comedy duos, from 19th century music halls and radio to ‘Hancock’s Half Hour’, Morecambe and Wise and ‘Withnail and I’. A thoroughly researched narrative explores the development of the ‘funny men’ duos of Victorian theatre, how cross-talk and song-and-dance personae transferred to comedy circuits and, eventually, radio and television screen. Considers the subtle art of ‘the straight man’ and double acts that weren’t, all the while featuring the great acts of British comedy.
