If you’re like me and you really enjoy comedy then the chances are you were pretty excited, okay ecstatic, to hear that Harry Enfield and Paul Whitehouse will be embarking upon their first live tour later this year.
Here are my favourite comedy duos – let me know your thoughts!
Reeves and Mortimer
Shooting Stars is probably one of the most iconic British comedy shows of all time. The Dove from Above, Angelos and of course “What are the scores, George Dawes?”, Reeves and Mortimer had Matt Lucas playing the drums while dressed as a baby – they’re winners in my eyes!
This dynamic duo are heading out on tour with 25 Years of Reeves & Mortimer later this year, so be sure to catch them if you can.
Simon Pegg and Nick Frost
Anyone who names their movie trilogy The Cornetto Trilogy deserves a mention. Shaun of the Dead which also stars the wonderful Dylan Moran is one of funniest British films around – no one else could get away with turning Bill Nighy into a zombie!
Laurel and Hardy
They may have paired up almost 80 years ago, but the work of Laurel and Hardy still keeps many chuckling to this day. Their slapstick comedy paved the way for others to follow suit and they starred together in a whopping 107 films in total.
Tina Fey and Amy Poehler
As a massive 30 Rock and Parks and Recreation fan (Anyone who saw Aziz Ansari at the Eventim Apollo in November I envy you!) there was no way I was missing these two off this list. From being two of the greatest Saturday Night Live alumni to the hilarious hosts of the Golden Globe Awards and everything in between (two words: Mean Girls), Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are one of the funniest duos around.
Harry Enfield and Paul Whitehouse
Well I couldn’t miss these two out now could I? From the Old Gits, Smashie and Nicey, Julio Geordio and The Scoucers, Enfield and Whitehouse are a national treasure. One of my earliest TV comedy memories is of Kevin becoming a teenager… need I say more?
