Publisher's Summary

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
  • 2. Lengths
  • 3. Six of the Best
  • 4. Mrs Wooley’s Curse
  • 5. The Music Teacher
  • 6. Aversion Therapy
  • 7. Hello
  • 8. Father and Son
  • 9. The Frog and the Peach
  • 10. The Psychiatrist
  • 11. Bo Dudley

    I like to weed and read at the same time.

    "Nostalgia Nostalgia"

    If you remember 'Pete and Dud' from their television days and before they both got seduced by the rest of the world you will love this. The sketches are as fresh and achingly funny as they were first time round. Dud and Pete in the Art Gallery had me crying with laughter (again). The phrase 'because I never had the Latin',in the the sketch in which Pete bemoans the fact that he couldn't get to be a Judge has been a family joke whenever we make an excuse for not doing something. You have to imagine the pair in old raincoats and cloth caps to full appreciate what is going on.

    "Definatly Genius"

    I Have heard some of these sketches hundreds of times and they still have the power to make me laugh out loud. They are both genii and I belive there is a gap in you collection if you dont posses any Pete and Dud

    "Classic comedy!!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    It's classic British comedy at it's very best!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Peter cook was a genius, and Dudley and him work perfectly together


    What about Peter Cook and Dudley Moore ’s performance did you like?

    You know it's only roughly scripted, and they just go to town with the ad libbing


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I did listen to it all in one sitting. I was enthralled!!

    "Pete & Dudley"

    I wanted to get into this but found it hard to enjoy. Being from just outside the era i found myself unable to 'get' the very basic humour. I live in a time of complex comedy and this wasn't deep enough for my taste
