Breakfast At Eddie's

Hey - I feel hungry and I can't resist popping back to show you one of the all time favourite British comedy sketches.



Here's Eric Morecombe and Ernie Wise dancing around their kitchen. Sadly both have passed on now. When I was a youth, many years ago, they were huge hits on the telly. I'm not sure whether they were known in the US.

I have to laugh because I can just imagine some of my favourite cooking friends having a little dance around their kitchens after this. Marguerite and Lola . . . one, two, three!! There you go!  . . . . and don't forget to shut the fridge door.

  3. I never saw them before, but I sure would have liked to have been able to watch them on the telly in the US when I was growing up and still watched TV. Nice video. Thanks for showing them to us. Hubby and I watched the video and cracked up.

  7. They are, of course, hilarious. Just glad that I don't have to go through this palaver at breakfast time.
    LOL!

  11. Yes, I knew Morecombe & Wise in the states, but I'm something of a comedy team junkie. I know a lot of folks that the majority here might not remember. Anyway, they were hilarious. Thanks for posting this, Eddie!

  14. Thanks for the visit at sixtyfivewhatnow. I came in through Maggie May, reading your comments to support her story. How wonderful to see this sharing, and how the whole story comes alive with each addition.

    Good to see you, my friend.

  15. I'd never even heard of them! More's the pity - if this skit was any indication of their usual foolishness, we really missed out on something spectacular here in the states!

  16. This happens every morning, at around breakfast time in my home!

    Thank you for sharing this precious bit of pure comedy, Eddie. And for mentioning me, I loved watching this.

    Ciao,
