Publisher's Summary

A compilation of great gags and sketches from the incomparable Eric and Ernie, one of the best-loved and most successful comedy duos of all time. Dip into the fun barrel for such magic moments as Ernie the male model, Eric and his fast-growing moustache seeds, and the day little Ern (he of the short, fat, hairy legs) was asked to be Bob Hope's head waiter (sorry, head writer). Furthermore, Ernie's genius as a mathematician is revealed, he can even do calculations blindfolded, and hear how Eric tries to help Ernie get over the flu. (You can tell he's ill, he hasn't written a play for 20 minutes but, don't worry, he'll write six more the next day.) There's the first meeting in a London teashop between Lord Byron and Keats, as well as Eric's name change by 'deed pill' ('no wonder it hurt'). But will The Robin Catbush and Phyllis Ludicrous Show really catch on?


What the Critics Say

"The greatest double act in the history of British television." (Independent)

Uh ... okay

Loved a few of the sketches (especially between the two poets). Otherwise, its just some nice lighthearted listening.
