I don't think he's a bad pick actually, he's known to have health problems (kidneys and heart). He's the sort of pick that had he died without being selected people's reaction would be "I can't beleive he's not on the list."
Also surely there's a lot of mileage to be had about how bad they were. The best I can say about Little and Large is that they're not the Krankies.


They made Cannon and Ball look like Fry and Laurie
 
 
Go to 10.54, is that a Cliff Richard T shirt he's wearing during his Jimmy Savile "impression" ?
Handy, you are a DL legend.
How many others could have got through 10 mins of Little and Large!!!
I bow to you. :bow:

Oh, that was really bad then, even worse now. Little and Large need to be locked up for life on the basis of historical child abuse in that they made such poor TV that was passed off as light entertainment comedy.
Baaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!

I'm with the comment above, not sure I've spent 10 minutes and 54 seconds of my life indulging in Little and Large's work, respect for your inner strength Handy!

Maryport is a disappointment for which there is no cure, but the annual Deathrace thread hereabouts provides welcome distraction.

Just thought I would point out that Syd Little has been announced as one of the contestents on this summer's Celebrity Masterchef. I presume they are filming/have just filmed for later broadcast. If he does well we might get a glimpse of Eddie.

I thought they hadn't spoken to each other in years. Or maybe perhaps Eddie will be there to eat the leftovers.

Dear Awesome Guest, you may think it is funny that we go on about these unfunny comedians from the 1970s but if your comments on your age are true then you can have no concept of the true horror of Saturday night light entertainment. Three channels was our total choice and one of them was ITV. No videos, no computer games, no internet, no deathlist. Remember Little and Large were no means the worst offerings that were laid before us.

 

See I am scarred for life.

There were many others that subjected us to terrible comedy shows and acts. Cannon & Ball, The Krankies, Russ Abbot.. to name just a few, Sad to say, this was often referred to as "quality television". It's like when they introduce some old biddy on a chat or panel show and introduce her as "the lovely...."

Re the pair, Little and Large, not speaking. Is there - like - any hard evidence of this? I thought Eddie's health problems had done for what was left of their career (mainly middle-billing on touring variety packages long after television had forgotten them).

I guess the source might be Eddie's own revelation, reported by The Independent.

http://www.independe...me-1988413.html

But hard evidence? Should they wiretap to check whether they really don't speak to each other? ;)

Maybe the fact that they didn't sue the Independent for libel can be regarded as indirect evidence.

Cheers, more a case of drifting apart, then. He sounds more chipper than I expected. 15 million people watched them, that is truly a mark of the lack of choice available then, eh? I mean, it's not like they keep repeating their "classic" sketches, like Morecambe and Wise, is it?

Morecambe and Wise would draw over 20 million in their heyday. But then again they were actually funny. I watched perhaps a couple of episodes of Little and Large, but I fail to remember any specific sketches that they did or any of their jokes.

I never watched any of this shite.  There was another option, reading, and I read a lot, usually free of charge via the library.

 

And I never found Morecambe and Wise remotely funny either.  They were just as childish and farcical as those mentioned, but they relied on having incongruous guests who were willing to have the piss taken out of them.  For some reason people found this amusing.  I found them just silly and boring.

I suppose I just don't like that kind of act.  The only exception that springs to mind is the Two Ronnies, but there you had brilliant writing, and great comic timing.

I suppose I just don't like that kind of act.  The only exception that springs to mind is the Two Ronnies, but there you had brilliant writing, and great comic timing.

 

 

I agree the Two Ronnies had good comedic timing. I used to watch Two Ronnies and Morecombe & Wise. Slight different types of humour, and yet very similar.

Looking back on many shows at the time, there woud be half the show that I can watch again and still get a chuckle and the other half I'm thinking to myself "I don't remember this" and "How long will this be over before it gets to the funny part".  There's a fair bit of the Two Ronnies that they wouldn't really be able to show on TV these days purely because of how racially offensive they would come across with the stereotypes they would portray.

Dear Awesome Guest, you may think it is funny that we go on about these unfunny comedians from the 1970s but if your comments on your age are true then you can have no concept of the true horror of Saturday night light entertainment. Three channels was our total choice and one of them was ITV. No videos, no computer games, no internet, no deathlist. Remember Little and Large were no means the worst offerings that were laid before us.

 

See I am scarred for life.

 

 

There were many others that subjected us to terrible comedy shows and acts. Cannon & Ball, The Krankies, Russ Abbot.. to name just a few, Sad to say, this was often referred to as "quality television". It's like when they introduce some old biddy on a chat or panel show and introduce her as "the lovely...."

 

 

I never watched any of this shite.  There was another option, reading, and I read a lot, usually free of charge via the library.

 

And I never found Morecambe and Wise remotely funny either.  They were just as childish and farcical as those mentioned, but they relied on having incongruous guests who were willing to have the piss taken out of them.  For some reason people found this amusing.  I found them just silly and boring.

 

 

The library was always free of charge for me too, I read a lot, but also occasionally would take a break from that. Even looking back at some of the shows that I used to laugh at as a kid, now I can't understand why. Out of the comedy double acts around at the time, Morecombe & Wise were one of the best.

FFS, only one Ronnie was funny (and he was the one who could write a bit).

 

Little and Large had some half-decent musical guests, which was the only reason I ever tuned in.

Maryport is a disappointment for which there is no cure, but the annual Deathrace thread hereabouts provides welcome distraction.

I'm sick of all the oldsters complaining. Our generation, we have a full-on Tory government and also have to suffer through a shite thing brought to us by unbearable berks, called "football".
