The Morecambe and Wise Joke Book(1979)
A non fiction book by Eddie Braben, Eric Morecambe and Ernie Wise
Morecambe and Wise charmed a nation for decades and at their height commanded TV audiences that could only be matched by the moon landings and the 1966 World Cup final. Often called the third member of Morecambe and Wise, the late Eddie Braben was the quiet genius behind their best-loved jokes. Here, collected together for the first time, is a celebration of the finest repartee Braben ever penned for them - the banter between Eric and Little Ern, lines from those horrendous plays what Ernie wrote, and the unforgettable celebrity encounters with such names as Glenda Jackson, Andre Previn and, of course, Des O'Connor. The perfect Christmas stocking-filler for Eric and Ernie fans young and old. This is the perfect gift for all fans of Morecambe and Wise. This hardback book has 176 pages and measures 1.9 x 16.5 x 22.2cm.
