Uncanny double act Eric and Ern bring Morecambe and Wise back to the London stage

Morecambe and Wise were one of the most popular comedy double acts of the twentieth century.

And judging by the number of contemporary comics who cite them as an inspiration, they are much missed.

But keeping the magic alive are Ian Ashpitel and Jonty Stephens who perform as the pair. This autumn the pair are taking Eric and Ern on tour with a couple of dates in London.

You can see An Evening Of Eric And Ern at The Hawth in Crawley on Sunday and at the Churchill theatre in Bromley in December.
