Morecambe and Wise take on the Beautiful Shirley Bassey
There are few comedy duos that can truly be called great and Morecambe and Wise are one of those, they are very much heavyweights of the comedy world. Their partnership lasted from 1941 until 1984.
They have been described as “the most illustrious, and the best-loved, double-act that Britain has ever produced” and I can’t argue with that!
The Morecambe and Wise show was effectively a sketch show crossed with a sitcom. One of the funniest sketches was when they had Shirley Bassey singing Smoke gets in your Eyes while Morecambe and Wise are playing two workers trying to keep the stage from falling apart! Hilarious!
