Abbott & Costello Show #1, The (1950)
Starring: Bud Abbott, Joe Besser, Hillary Brooke, Lou Costello, Sid Fields, Gordon Jones
Category: Classic, Comedy
Studio: Shanachie
110 mins



The Abbott and Costello TV Show is timeless American humor, as fresh today as it was 40 years ago.All the classic routines which "the boys" performed on film, radio and stage, were captured in 1952-1953 for the new medium of television and delivered at the peak of their powers.

The regular cast of characters, including Mr. Fields, Mike the Cop, Stinky, Bacciagalupe and Hillary, had worked with Bud and Lou on film and stage and each contributed memorably.These shows stand today as perhaps the finest surviving representation of the art of burlesque comedy.
