Morecombe and Wise

The Book Wot I Wrote - Eddie Braben ISBN 0 340 83373 4

Eddie Braben is best known as the writer for Morecombe and Wise during their most popular phase.

This book covers anecdotes from his life, tips on comedy writing, working with Eric and Ernie and more.

Braben came up with the role of 'play wright' for Ernie Wise and made him much more of a funny man than a just a feed to Eric Morecombe

The humour is slightly old fashioned (as Braden readily acknowledges) and often based on word play.

For people who like Morecombe and Wise this book will be both interesting and amusing. Braben also wrote for Ken Dodd and many other top comics.
