As part of their UK tour, we saw ‘Eric and Little Ern’ at The Royal Theatre in Northampton.
Almost a full-house – and what a performance! The physical, visual and aural similarities to this iconic comedy duo were amazing – almost bordering on creepy. They had the all the mannerisms, the ad-libs and the rapport down to absolute perfection, and it could have so easily been the REAL Morecambe and Wise up there doing their comedy magic.
Both Ian Ashpitel (Ernie Wise) and Jonty Stephens (Eric Morecambe) did a BRILLIANT job of transporting us back to a time when humour didn’t rely on swearing, bodily fluids and ridicule! The audience were in stitches, I guess proving that this sort of ‘gentler’ humour still works with a modern (and also somewhat younger) audience.
I got into blogging quite late in life, not publishing my first post until 2004 – well into my 40s!
My lifelong love of technology and communication (in all its forms), together with a fondness for the art of writing seemed to be the perfect combination to contribute a few words to the online community.
But I’m no Samuel Pepys! If you’re looking for deep and meaningful comments on a variety of subjects, then you’ve arrived at the wrong site! I only pen for pleasure!
On average, my posts appear about twice per month, covering family & friends, cinema visits, eating out, holiday experiences and techy stuff. Oh, and as this is my hobby, there’s no sponsored links nor adverts here – it’s all done with love!
I hope you find it enjoyable, interesting and occasionally, even helpful!
