Eric & Little Ern
This affectionate, moving and fantastically funny homage to the greatest comedy double act that Britain has ever seen vividly brings back warm memories of a bygone era. Recreating some of the finest moments of Eric and Ernie’s television and stage performances, cherished moments from the archives sit alongside new material created by the performers. Together they make a brilliant comedy that recreates the all-ages appeal of Morecambe and Wise in their heyday.
The show tours for a strictly limited season following an acclaimed West End run, for which it received an Olivier Award nomination for Best Entertainment.
This newly extended version features classic material including the original Grieg Piano Concerto sketch and Eric’s take on Shakespeare.

“Ashpitel and Stephens have got the duo’s mannerisms down pat to such a winning extent. You could watch this for hours” **** THE DAILY TELEGRAPH
