LAUREL and HARDY the British Tours
by A.J Marriot

LAUREL AND HARDY BRITISH TOURS PICS


LAUREL and HARDY Driver's Licence sketch 1947Laurel and Hardy are undoubtedly the most famous and popular comedy double-act of all time, with well over three hundred solo and team films between them. But their comedy work wasn't solely in films. Laurel spent several years working on the British variety stage and in Music Hall, followed by several more touring the United States of America in Vaudeville. Babe Hardy too had spells on the American stage early on in his career, as a singer.

And then, when Laurel and Hardy's screen career was over, Laurel returned to the British Variety stage, and took with him his American partner, Oliver Hardy. And so what of the accounts of all the years these comic geniuses spent on stage? Where are they? Laurel & Hardy films have spawned hundreds of books and thousands of articles, but written work on Stan and Ollie's stage shows wouldn't fill one magazine, much less a book. Not, that it is, until along came the two books pictured below.
