Abbott and Costello


"Heyyyyy Abbott!" was the cry that promised mayhem on NBC and then ABC from 1942 through 1949. These former vaudevillians were big hits in the movies, in radio, and pioneered on early television as well. Their routine "Who's On First?" alone earns them immortality in the history of comedy.
