Description by UAV Corporation:
Abbot & Costello were one of the greatest comedy teams in the history of show business. You'll roar with laughter at these early comic performances taken from The Colgate Comedy Hour--a popular television show which debuted in 1951. Sit back and enjoy two entire episodes, complete with commercials--many of which are just as funny as the skits themselves!
This volume, with special guest stars Jane Russell and Charles Laughton, features hilarious skits revolving around the movie premier of Abbot & Costello's Jack and the Beanstalk. Also featured is the famous "Gettysburg Address" routine, the side-splitting "Double Date," a magic show, and Costello's Zany portrayal of the "Presidente."
Abbot & Costello's straightman/clown relationship, their perfectly timed routines, and their outrageous burlesque comedy continue to stand the test of time and will keep you in stitches as you enjoy forever the performances that made them the "Kings of Comedy."
