Morecambe and Wise: Two of a Kind
Undoubtedly the best-loved double act that Britain has ever produced, Morecambe and Wise first came to fame in the mid 1960s with their hit comedy series for ATV. Showcasing their mildly anarchic humour, impeccable sense of timing and keen eye for the absurd, the success of Two of a Kind propelled Morecambe and Wise towards the BBC and television superstardom in no uncertain terms.
Each show features fast-moving skits and musical parodies, with Eric and Ernie giving us their inimitable versions of television favourites Supercar, Face to Face and Candid Camera – in addition to memorable interpretations of Shakespeare, Eric's ongoing battle to get his lines right and undoubtedly the most ambitious attempt ever seen to recreate the 'fight sequence' from Seven Brides for Seven Brothers!
This eight disc set contains all 48 editions of Two of a Kind (aka The Morecambe and Wise Show) alongside a wealth of special features – including an exceptionally rare early performance from 1957, several appearances on Val Parnell's Saturday Spectacular and the two surviving editions of Piccadilly Palace.
