Hilarious. Comedy sometimes dates badly yet several of these dialogues still make me laugh out loud. All the more so as the TV versions are not shown very often (lost?). This is one of the simplest ways to conjure a hint of the surreal adlib comedy of Peter Cook and Dudley Moore. Next best might be to watch their movie, Bedazzled. The dated bits are quaint, the timeless bits still very funny.

A manifesto for the ages. Everything you need to know about anything can be found in these pages. Like the dialogues of Plato, all the wisdom unfolds with effortlessness and clarity. Forget Lao Tzu and Schopenauer. This is the real deal.

Peter Edward Cook was an English satirist, writer and comedian. Cook is widely regarded as the leading figure in the British satire boom of the 1960s. He has been described by Stephen Fry as 'the funniest man who ever drew breath', and is closely associated with an anti-establishment style of comedy that first emerged in the late 1950s.
