Introduced by Ernie Wise, this is the only film of the great Eric and Ern in front of a live audience, and was recorded at the Fairfield Halls, Croydon on October 28th 1973. It was broadcast on ITV on February 17th 1987.
With the backing of a small orchestra, Eric and Ern strut out onto the stage to the throngs of Bring Me Sunshine. Things get off to a fast start and the gags and one-liners are soon flowing. Even the inevitable fracas back stage gets a look in. (Can we say fracas?......no, fracas)
A quick foray in the slapping dance and later, the ventriloquist routine, with Charlie being slapped and punched much the delight of the audience. Yes, the paper bag routine gets a look in too, why is this always funny?
Both Eric and Ern are relaxed and give a lively show including a nice soft shoe dance, proving they still have old music hall skills.
This was recorded from analogue TV onto VHS videotape, copied to DVD and then ripped to XviD. Quality is not great and there is some hiss and hum on the sound, but hey, it's free.
I think a slightly longer version of this show was released on video, so hopefully someone somewhere will upload this sometime.
