The Morecambe and Wise Show

British comedy would be nothing without Morecambe and Wise. As the BBC website puts it "If you don't know Eric and Ernie you've either been in a bunker for forty years or you're very, very young... and belong in a bunker." They were truly the best comedy duo to grace our screens. Just think of the Breakfast Stripper sketch, or the Singin' in the Rain sketch. Think of all the celebrities who were willing to go on the show no matter what, Des O'Conner willingly getting mocked, Elton John being directed everywhere except the stage, André Previn being manhandled by Eric, Angela Rippon's kick dance. Think of all the Christmas' spent watching the Morecambe and Wise show. Think of the classic gags, "you can't see the join", "the play what i wrote" and so much more. And over all think of the Sunshine.
