MY BROTHER ESAU WAS A HAIRY MAN ET AL – BEYOND THE FRINGE – PETER COOK & DUDLEY MOORE

For reasons unknown, being hirsute is offensive to God. From this astonishing revelation, Monty Python was born and we’ve been laughing ever since. Well, some of us anyway.

You may put away your bibles. Don’t forget to drop some money in the basket.

I so enjoyed these pieces that I picked up both available Peter Cook and Dudley Moore albums from Audible. I need a good laugh!

  1. I watched Dudley Moore play, brilliantly and I so loved his sense of humour.

  2. Dudley Moor and Peter Cook belong to my time in London. I remember when Beyond the Fringe was in the West End theater and it was a hit. Dudley Moor originates in the same part of London, Dagenham, where my parents eventually lived and where my dad worked. They were both great, Dudley Moor was a good piano player. Beyond the Fringe was the predecessor to the saitre boom in England. They were four young guys that got together and did the show.

    • AND they were both incredibly funny. They were also the predecessors to Monte Python. Peter Sellers used to perform with them.

      After ALL these years, they are still hilarious. Our (U.S.’s) original group — Second City — were initially a take-off on them. Most of today’s comedy owes them a huge debt of gratitude. Pity they both died so young.

      Dudley Moore was a concert-level pianist and could have been a world-class musician.

  3. I need to come back to this later today after I have caught up with my “end of year paper work” which I have been avoiding~!
