Peter Cook and Dudley Moore were two of the brightest stars ever to light up the world of comedy. They set standards that will probably never be surpassed. Cambridge graduates who met in Beyond the Fringe, their chemistry produced some of the funniest, most inventive and downright brilliant comedy ever recorded.
They came to wider fame with the TV series Not Only… But Also. The writing and performances were superb. The show had a variety of sketches, most memorably the so called ‘Dagenham dialogues’, in which, dressed in flat caps and shabby raincoats, in a variety of settings - a pub, an art gallery, a doctors surgery - they spouted absolutly hilarious nonsense. Pete played the all knowing bore, while Dud played the more subservient but equally opinionated mate, all the while trying not to corpse at Cook’s frequent ad libs. Volume 1 contains some absolute gems:
1. Art Gallery
3. Six of the Best
4. Mrs Wooley’s Curse
5. The Music Teacher
6. Aversion Therapy
8. Father and Son
9. The Frog and the Peach
10. The Psychiatrist
11. Bo Dudley

It's classic British comedy at it's very best!
Peter cook was a genius, and Dudley and him work perfectly together
You know it's only roughly scripted, and they just go to town with the ad libbing
I did listen to it all in one sitting. I was enthralled!!
