Morecambe & Wise On Stage
The only ever fully-recorded stage performance by legendary comedy double act Morecambe & Wise, from Croydon's Fairfield Halls in October 1973
- Eric Morecambe and Ernie Wise
- Alan More
Filmed as a present for the personal collection of their manager, Billy Marsh, the performance was edited down to an hour and broadcast by Thames Television in 1987. A 66-minute long VHS was released in 1997.
This film captures two of Britain's most adored artists performing some of their best loved comedy sketches in front of a live audience.
With the backing of their orchestra, under the musical direction of Johnny Wiltshire, Eric & Ernie deliver and ad lib a torrent of gags and one-liners honed over many years on the live comedy circuit.
The duo close the show with their classic rendition of Bring Me Sunshine.
