Eric Morecambe, Ernie Wise, Eddie Braben - Authors


Eric Morecambe and Ernie Wise began their award-winning double-act in 1941 after meeting in Jack Hylton's revue, Youth Takes a Bow at the Nottingham Empire Theatre. They temporarily separated during the war, but reformed after and went on to star in a series of hit shows that spanned over 20 years and included the ratings smash The Morecambe and Wise Show. They became one of Britain's best-loved comedy duos and their partnership lasted until Eric Morecambe's death in 1984. Eddie Braben was born in Liverpool and started writing jokes in his spare moments while working on a fruit and veg stall. He went on to write material for some of the biggest comedians of his day including Ronnie Corbett, Ken Dodd and of course Morecambe and Wise.

He died in May 2013, folling a short illness aged 82.
