As I mentioned here, Bud Abbott and Lou Costello were the most popular and most highly paid comedians of their era (the 1940s and early 1950s).
This hilarious due created and performed some of the most famous comedy routines in entertainment history, including a true classic that seems to never get old…
“Who’s On First” is almost as complicated as it is funny.
How these guys managed to give this iconic performance in front of countless live audiences without making a single mistake is beyond me.
If you’ve never had the pleasure of seeing this routine before, here’s your chance to enjoy it for the very first time.
If you have seen it, feel free to enjoy it yet again!
Note: You can watch this video at full screen by clicking the little “square” icon in the lower-right corner of the video after it begins playing.
I hope you enjoyed that as much as I did. There will likely never be another comedy team quite like the great Abbott & Costello.
