Britain's Most Loved and Best Comedy Double Act

The Morecambe & Wise Comedy Classic

Book Review from 2010

This new release, no doubt targeted at the Christmas market, is a wonderfully colourful and easy to read ‘bookazine’ that weighs in at 132 pages.

Most, if not all, of the pages are packed full of great photographs from all eras and accompanied by informative and interesting text.

Gary Morecambe provided much of the Morecambe & Wise story, and those regular visitors to our site will recognise several sections making an appearance too. It’s nice to see some of our work in print.

The book will be available via online order or direct from WHSmiths, and would make a great Christmas present for anyone familiar with Eric and Ern’s work.

All aspects of Morecambe are covered from the very early days before they met, through the early radio and ATV years, the BBC greats, guest stars, Thames and more.

Also included are abridged versions of interviews with people like Joan Morecambe, Ann Hamilton and Eddie Braben (full versions can be found on this site), all give a little glimpse of Eric and Ern.

A well put together book and well worth getting.
